Press accreditation

The press accreditation process for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games is now closed.

The accreditation application for press organisations is a two stage process that started with the so called Press by Number process on 29 June. Press organisations had to register their interest and provide numbers on how many accreditations they want by 14 August 2015.

The second stage will be the Press by Name process starting in March 2016.

Non rights holding broadcasters (television and radio) had to apply for press accreditation directly through the IPC.

Around 2,200 accredited press representatives are expected to attend the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games from 7-18 September, which will welcome around 4,350 athletes from more than 160 countries.
