Official Media Accreditation
Tasracing encourages professional media to attend Tasmanian race meetings.
All professional media including photographers, videographers and journalists are required to apply for Official Media Accreditation.
Tasracing will grant Official Media Accreditation to freelancers and employees of media companies wishing to attend race meetings for the purpose of racing or sports media coverage, or for the purpose of freelance photographers/videographers including drone operators wishing to capture racing images to make available for sale to members of the public, racing clubs, or racing participants.
Official Media Accreditation will provide the individual with an official identification tag which when worn to a race meeting will allow the individual to enter into areas restricted to the general public. Specific areas of access will be agreed prior to the accredited individual arriving at the racing venue and is entirely at Tasracing’s discretion.
All individuals who successfully obtain Tasracing Official Media Accreditation will be subject to Tasracing’s standard conditions of entry, plus must obey all instructions from Tasracing staff or authorised representatives when attending race meetings. Breaching any of the Conditions of Entry or instructions from Tasracing staff may result in accreditation being revoked.
