COC accepting expressions of interest for Paris 2024 press accreditation
TORONTO (July 14, 2022) — The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) is accepting expressions of interest for press accreditation to the Olympic Games Paris 2024.
Canadian media are asked to complete and submit the form at olympic.ca/press-accreditation by Friday, September 16, 2022. Please submit one expression of interest per organization.
Late submissions will not be considered.
Due to the limited quota of accreditations allocated by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), selection criteria will be applied. The COC will consider an organization’s national scope in coverage, readership and circulation, previous history in attending and covering an Olympic Games and geographical representation.
Media that have been granted press accreditation will be contacted in October 2022.
Journalist (E): Journalist, editor, photographic editor, employed or contracted by an international or national news agency, a general daily newspaper, a sports newspaper, magazine or internet site, a digital journalist, or freelance journalist under contract.
Photographer (EP): Photographer, meeting the same criteria as those defined by category “E”.
Procedure for ENRs (non-rights holding broadcasting media)
For any non-rights holding radio and/or television organizations within Canada that may be interested in covering the news aspect for Paris 2024, the electronic ENR accreditation application form will be available on January 26, 2023 at www.olympics.com/ioc/accred2024.
The IOC will be the responsible organization for distributing the ENR accreditations, in co-operation with the COC. The deadline for applications is March 8, 2023.
The ENR organizations will have full responsibility to apply directly to the IOC for accreditation within the required timelines and late requests will not be considered. Further questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Please note that it is strictly prohibited for the Canadian Olympic Committee to grant a member of an ENR organization any other type of press accreditation (E or EP).
