|Accredited journalists from print, broadcast and online news outlets are welcome to apply for complimentary registration as a member of the media. Please note that journalists can attend the conference either in person or “virtually.” |
Journalists attending in person will receive complimentary conference registration, pending accreditation by Women Deliver (see requirements below). You will be fully responsible for your own hotel, airfare, visa and any other expenses. You may also sign up for complimentary site visits.
To apply for accreditation, members of the press who plan to attend the conference in person must first complete the online registration application form. You will then be contacted by the Women Deliver 2013 communications team to collect accreditation materials for review. Details about those requirements are included below.
If you have any questions about the media registration or accreditation process, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtual registrants will have access to relevant conference materials prior to and during the event. They will also have the opportunity to watch live webcasts of select high-level sessions and press conferences.
Requirements for Media Accreditation
All journalists applying for accreditation for the Women Deliver 2013 conference are required to submit several documents:
• Copies of three (3) examples of your recent and relevant work, under your byline. Articles must show that you publish regularly for a reputable news outlet. Scanned copies, recordings or complete URLs are sufficient.
• A letter from your editor on official letterhead, confirming that he/she has assigned you to cover the conference.
• A copy of your official press credentials. If you do not have credentials, this must be clearly stated in the letter.
All materials will be reviewed by the Women Deliver 2013 communications team to determine journalists’ eligibility for accreditation. Please note that space is limited. Please note that Women Deliver has the right to refuse media accreditation at its discretion.
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that have an active blog or newsletter are allowed to request approval to register no more than one (1) communications staff member as a media delegate. NGO representatives must be proven communications/media professionals and publish relevant articles frequently. The Women Deliver 2013 communications team will contact all NGO media registrants for accreditation materials. Please note that Women Deliver has the right to refuse media accreditation to any NGO applicants who do not meet requirements. All additional communications staff must register to attend the conference as non-media participants.

Members of the press who require an official Letter of Invitation to the conference can request a letter through the online registration form. If you have not received your letter, or if you need one, but were not able to request it through the online registration form, email email@example.com.
All broadcast journalists entering Malaysia to cover the conference will need to declare all professional equipment with customs in their country (i.e. country of departure) arriving in Malaysia. Journalists are required to complete a form called a ‘ATA Carnet’ to declare all broadcast equipment. The ‘ATA Carnet’ will need to be approved by customs in the journalists’ country of origin and presented to the Malaysian customs authorities upon arrival. To be safe, Women Deliver recommends that journalists apply for an ‘ATA Carnet’ to declare all equipment that will be used for professional purposes at WD 2013.
To learn more about how to acquire an ‘ATA Carnet’ please visit the International Chamber of Commerce website here. To find out about requirements in your own country, please visit the International Chamber of Commerce website here.
