2016 RIO Paralympic Games Media Accreditation Reminder

Members of the print media and photographers are reminded again 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 29 March 2016.

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 Jessica Choga on [email protected] or 087 351 2082.

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 on 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 [email protected] 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.
