The International Olympic Committee establishes a limited quota of “E” (press) accreditations for the Olympic Games and Olympic Winter Games, which the United States Olympic Committee distributes to U.S. media outlets. The USOC and a committee composed of Associated Press sports editors, along with representatives of magazines, newspapers, websites and photographers determine press allocations.
The accreditation process for non-rights holding broadcasters is managed directly by the IOC. Further details on this process can be found at Olympic.org.
PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games
The deadline to request media accreditation for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games has expired. Late requests will not be considered for the first allocation and will be placed on a waiting list for later consideration. To submit a late request, please contact Peggy Manter (Peggy.Manter@usoc.org).
The Olympic media accreditation process is open to:
• Daily or weekly newspapers
• National news or sports magazines
• Web-based organizations with staff members providing original content
• Photographic media organizations with wide-ranging magazine, newspaper and web-based clientele
The USOC received a very limited number of accreditations from the International Olympic Committee for allocation to U.S. media outlets. The USOC and a committee composed of Associated Press sports editors, along with representatives of magazines, newspapers, websites and photographers met in 2016 to determine allocations. Requesting organizations will be notified of the results in December 2016.
Non-Rights Holding Broadcasters:
All non-rights holding broadcasters will be accredited directly by the International Olympic Committee. Requests will be accepted from Oct.10 through Nov. 15, 2016, at Olympic.org.
