Freelance journalists are required to submit an assignment letter from the general manager, editor or news director, on official letterhead of the media outlet, and will only receive media credentials if on assignment. Production companies are required to submit a letter from their broadcast organization providing details of the editorial coverage and footage required. Media credentials for freelance photographers without assignment will not be granted.
