Media Accreditation and Information

- Guidelines to Puhinui -


Those media including photographers wanting to attend the event and use the media facilities are asked to contact Vicki Glynn or Bridget Sutton prior to the event. Accreditation will give you access to free passes to the event, limited catering and the media centre. Interviews with competitors can also be arranged. A press conference will be held at the completion of each day of competition with the leaders and on conclusion of the event. This is accessible only to accredited media.

Accreditation Guidelines:

The applicant must be part of the editorial team, or on an assignment for a specific publication, broadcast media, or news service (including internet based) attending to specifically cover the event.  

Accreditation applications must be submitted by 3  December.


Accredited photographers are those on assignment from a recognised publication or news outlet.  They are prohibited from offering pictures for sale to competitors at Puhinui International 3 Day Event  for a period of one month after the event.

The official photographers will be entitled to sell their photos to competitors. In return, they will be also expected to provide images to the organisers for their use (ie for sponsors, for the website, social media, next year's programme).  They are also expected to be available to cover the whole event, or the classes that they have been allocated.
