Accreditation: Winter Olympics applications

From the BOA

Applications to be considered for accreditation for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang need to be submitted to the British Olympic Association by December 1.

pyeongchang_2018_logo_detailPress accreditation for the Olympic Games is allocated only to media professionals.

Written and photographic press wishing to apply for accreditation for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games should contact the National Olympic Committee in the country in which their organisation is based.

The BOA received a very limited number of accreditations from the International Olympic Committee for allocation to UK media outlets and therefore not all requests will be facilitated.
