Guiding Principles for Media Coverage

1) General
  Regarding the coverage of the Joint Opening Ceremony, WS competitions, IA contests and Closing Ceremonies, JOCISF requests media to observe instructions to be set by JOCISF who specify the time and place for media access and restrict unauthorized behaviors as using Flash, Light, Camera Stand, etc.,

2) Media Accreditation
 JOCISF will issue media AC (accreditation card) to media who undertakes coverage of the event. As a rule, all applications for media accreditation must be made in advance. JOCISF will provide pre-registered and accredited media with some advantages such as access to media centre, invitation to press conferences, etc., during the competitions.

  JOCISF will accept on-site media registration day by day during the competitions to endorse their coverage. In this case, please understand that some advantages such as access to media centre might not be available.

3) Media Pass to Joint Opening Ceremony
  JOCISF will issue a certain number of media pass to the camera spots at the joint opening ceremony and incidental exchange program among competitors/contestants of WS/IA competitions. The priorities to the camera spots will be given to: nationwide/worldwide network media and their professional camera crews, who will make an immediate report to influentially invite public awareness.

4) Media Pass to the Closing Ceremony
 JOCISF will issue a certain number of media pass to the camera spots at the closing ceremony of WS and IA respectively. The priority to the camera spots will be given by similar way to the opening ceremony.
