MEDIA ACCREDITATION

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN

TYPES  

AusCycling will be offering two types of accreditations for the 2021 Federation University Road National Championships – On-Site and Virtual. 

APPLICATION DEADLINE 

All requests for media accreditation at the AusCycling 2021 Federation University Road National Championships including photographers, videographers and journalists, must apply via this form BY JANUARY 31.  

VIRTUAL ACCREDITATIONS  

AusCycling will be offering virtual accreditations which will include online access to official photos, video, audio and event recaps from the Championships.  

ON-SITE MEDIA ACCREDITATIONS  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the number of On-Site media accreditation places will be limited.  

No on-site media centre will be in operation during the Championships due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Access to the field of play for on-site media (i.e. finish line for photographers) and to the athlete interview area (after medal ceremonies) will be limited and approved on a case by case basis.  

On-Site Media Accreditation will only be approved for professional or commissioned journalists, photographers or videographers, working for a major commercial media outlet (print and online), recognised cycling media, community media, UCI or NRS team media, or those officially appointed or approved by AusCycling. 

Summary

  • Freelancers – must provide clear documentation that they are on assignment from a recognised outlet.  
  • Photographers – will be capped to one per outlet unless otherwise approved by AusCycling. 
  • Videographers – due to broadcast arrangements, videographer applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis only after a proposal detailing the type of content (i.e. team media, promotional, documentary) and scope of the videography project is sent to media@auscycling.org.au 
  • Other (blogs, podcasts etc) – must provide evidence that their site/channels, the content produced and the reach/exposure is significant and relevant to the industry.  
  • Team Med-a – submit letter of commission or similar. 

COVID-19 GUIDELINES 

Approved On-Site media will be required to adhere to COVID-19 safe practices.  Details will be provided to on-site media following approval of accreditation.
