COMMONWEALTH GAMES DELHI 2010 – MEDIA ACCREDITATION PROCESS
The next Commonwealth Games will be held in Delhi 3-14 October this year when Team Scotland will be in action. In addition, during the Delhi 2010 Closing Ceremony the Commonwealth Games Federation flag will be handed over to Glasgow as the host city for the XX Commonwealth Games in 2014.
Further to the media advisory and briefing in February, Commonwealth Games Scotland (CGS) has now received the necessary information from Delhi 2010 to start the media accreditation for Scottish media organisations.
CGS will be responsible for accrediting the written press, online journalists (non-video), photographers and electronic media personnel of non-rights- holding media. Rights-holding broadcasters will have their own quota of accreditations and anyone connected with this group of broadcasters should deal direct with their own head of operations.
Non-Scottish media should contact their own country’s Commonwealth Games Association.
Please email Katriona Bush, Head of Media & PR, Commonwealth Games Scotland for the necessary forms to complete email@example.com
All applications must be completed by 31 May 2010. Late applications may not be accepted by Delhi 2010, but if approved, accreditation passes will not have an inclusive visa for the Games which will give you additional logistical difficulties.
For details about media accommodation please go to the Delhi 2010 website www.cwgdelhi2010.org This process has been underway for some time and accommodation is becoming limited, so immediate action is recommended.
