2016 Rio Paralympic Games Media Accreditation

Members of the print media and photographers are reminded of the deadline for expressing interest in reporting on the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Print media who have yet to respond need to be aware that the deadline for submission of interest in covering the Games is 31 July, 2015.
This information is needed in order for South Africa’s Olympic and Paralympic governing body SASCOC to inform the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) of media numbers ahead of the 2016 Games.
Should media be interested in covering the Paralympics they are asked to contact Shane Keohane on shane@hsm.co.za or directly on 082 090-3971.
Kindly supply full names (as they appear on the media person’s passport) and the relevant media house or organisation.
Once there is an indication of media numbers, we will advise in terms of the process to be followed in terms of official accreditation and the accompanying time frames. Media are once again reminded of the urgency  required as once all deadlines have been passed there will be no chance of accreditation.
Non-rights holding broadcasters (television and radio) will have to apply for press accreditation directly through the IPC. Please contact media.accreditation@paralympic.org for further information.
The Rio Paralympics will take place between 7-18 September and approximately 4350 athletes from more than 160 countries are expected to compete.
