WGI Media Credential Policy

A WGI Sport of the Arts Media Badge may be provided as a courtesy to cover the event. It is not a ticket to the event, and does not guarantee you a seat at any event, nor does it allow access to restricted areas.

All WGI Media Badge applicants must currently be employed or on assignment by the outlets they are representing. In general, press applicants fall into one of five categories:  print, online, freelance, broadcast, and podcast/blog.

Any person requesting a media badge should fill out the WGI Media Badge Request Form. In the form, you will be required to provide information and answer a few questions about your media outlet. You will also be required to send in a scanned copy of your official media credentials from your outlet OR provide additional verification materials to obtain a media badge. Completed applications and a copy of media credentials or verification materials should be emailed to [email protected].

Once your application is verified and approved, WGI will arrange for the Media Pass to be mailed or picked up on-site.
