Re: Press Card

you need to be a member of one of the 16 'gatekeepers' that represent media personnel. I went for the NUJ as I know another member. Just applied and then had to be voted in. You do need to submit evidence of publication - mine was Sheffield Star and BBC News. Then it's a bit of a waiting game!!! I applied in June!

Re: Press Card

It used to be that press accreditation was a ticket to quite a lot of things but these days it's more for ID verification. I tend to hang it from my bag strap when getting in the way in the hope of getting a little leeway. The majority of events now have prior accreditation so you have to get an event pass. In theory you might need the press pass to collect them if it's a collect on the day kin of gig but I haven't ever been asked specifically for it and only twice for any kind of ID.
