All media wishing to attend ISU Championships must apply for media accreditation through the ISU Online Media Accreditation System (OMAS).

Only professional journalists, editors and photographers operating for editorial purpose, or producing an item containing informative content, will be accredited. Editorial use implies use by a media organization, including: agencies, newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, Internet, and/or an extension within an existing multimedia company (newspaper, magazine, TV, agency), as well as representatives from ISU Member federations acting as media for their press and communication activities. Informative content implies editing of original information.

All media must provide the following documentation when applying for media accreditation and further information could be requested:

  1. Copy of current professional media or journalist card

  2. ID photo in .jpg.

  3. If not in possession of a professional media card, a comment must be added to the note box provided and a letter from your editor confirming your assignment must be uploaded to your application.

Accreditation will be granted to professional journalists and photographers only and any uncomplete applications will be refused.

  • Writing Press (newspaper, magazine, internet, agencies and ISU Member Federations): maximum two professionals per organization

  • Photographer: maximum one professional per organization (agencies and major newspapers: maximum two professionals)

  • Television non-right holder: maximum three professionals per organization

  • Radio non-right holder: maximum one professional per organization

  • Freelancer: A freelance journalist or photographer is a full time professional editor or photographer, who is not employed by an agency or newspaper – a self-employed professional. A freelance editor or photographer must provide written evidence that he/she operates on behalf of a clearly identified media. A freelance editor or photographer operating under his/her own account will not be accepted.

The total number of accredited media representatives will be subject to space available. The Organizing Committee (OC) and ISU reserve the right to refuse accreditation should the number of applications exceed given space or if any requested information / documentation has not been provided in due time.

Television and Radio Right Holders

Rights holding TV and radio must also apply for accreditation via the ISU online media accreditation system.  Access to the Right Holders area is restricted, therefore Right Holders are invited to contact the ISU Media Team media@isu.ch in order to obtain a username and password.
