WYD 2019

Media Accreditation

1/3 Welcome and thank you for your interest. Use this form to enter the details that are necessary for your accreditation.

You can register in one of the following ways: as freelance; as a single representative of a media outlet or agency; as leader of a crew; as a member of a crew. Crew members must each make an individual accreditation request. The crew leader should register first and create a unique "crew name". This name must be correctly quoted by the other crew members in their request for accreditation. This will allow the organisers to identify them as part of the crew.
