Media Registration

Journalists, including photographers, must work exclusively for the outlet for which they are credentialed (exceptions for freelance journalists are detailed below). Journalists who use their media privileges to work for non-credentialed organizations will have their privileges revoked. Journalists are required to submit the following:

  • A letter of assignment on the letterhead of the news organization being represented
  • Copies of 2 bylined medical/health/science articles (or credited photos) published within the last six months. Web links are acceptable, provided the full article is accessible.
  • A photocopy of official press credentials, such a press card issued by a recognized journalists’ association or a government-sanctioned press organization and/or a business card issued by a recognized news organization

Freelance journalists including photographers may work for multiple publications, as long as they confirm in advance that those publications are eligible for media registration. Freelance journalists must submit the following: 

  • A letter of assignment on the letterhead of the news organization being represented
  • Copies of 2 bylined medical/health/science articles (or credited photos) published within the last six months. Web links are acceptable, provided the full article can be accessed.
  • A recent copy of the publication (a mailed copy, link to the publication’s website or a photocopy of a cover/issue published within the past 6 months).
