The deadline for ENRs to show their interest in covering the Sochi 2014 Winter Paralympics is 31 March 2013.

As in previous Games editions, the main contact for media accreditation are the National Paralympic Committees (NPCs), who are responsible in facilitating the accreditation process for national media agencies and individuals. The IPC expects around 800-1,000 media representatives to be accredited for Sochi 2014.

The IPC will handle the media accreditation process of the large news agencies (Reuters, Agence France Presse, Associated Press, Getty Images) as well as the non-rights holding broadcasters (ENRs). The deadline for ENRs to show their interest in covering the Sochi 2014 Paralympics is 31 March 2013. Interested non rights holding broadcasters can apply for media accreditation via www.paralympic.org/events.

Sochi 2014 manages the accreditation process for rights holding broadcasters.

Please take a look at the chart below for the responsibilities of all parties involved and the respective timelines. Responsibilities of NPCs are highlighted in bold.
