EMERGE: IMPACT + MUSIC MEDIA GUIDELINES AND CREDENTIAL APPLICATION
Thank you for your interest in EMERGE: IMPACT + MUSIC.
If you would like to apply for a media credential (press/photo/video), please read the following guidelines and complete the form below. Please note that this is only a request and not all applications will be approved.
All applications must be submitted by March 23, 2018. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
Please do not contact us with questions regarding the status of your application. All applicants will be notified of their application status by March 28, 2018. All applicants will be contacted with either a confirmation or denial.
To apply, you must be on assignment to cover the event. Credential applications requesting to cover only one musician/speaker/showcase and not the event as a whole will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If you do not receive media credentials through the EMERGE public relations team, you will not be allowed to collect your media assets on site.
PHOTO & VIDEO POLICY*
All media outlets will have access to house photos and videos following the event but are welcome to assign a photographer/videographer of their own, who must shoot within the event and artist guidelines (to be determined).
All credentialed photographers/videographers must sign a photo/video release form when picking up credentials. Additional release forms may be required by individual artists and speakers, as well.
Only photographers with professional cameras such as SLR and interchangeable lens cameras will be allowed into the photo pits. Point-and-shoot and smartphone cameras will not be permitted in the photo pits. No spec photography, portfolio photography, or personal website photography will be accepted.
The event's photo policy is first three songs, no flash. Credentialed media and photographers should check in with EMERGE staff upon arrival to the venue where they will receive any additional instructions.
*Policy subject to change.
