To apply for press/fan accreditation to the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, the EBU is using a new online platform called Accredion.
How to apply for accreditation
To apply, please create a new user account via Accredion. After creating your account you can log in, choose Eurovision Song Contest, then select Lisbon 2018 and click My application in the menu on the left. Please make sure you apply in the right group by following these instructions:
If you are legally based in one of the participating countries, you should apply in that particular group. E.g. if you are legally based in Portugal, you should apply in the group Portugal. After submitting your application, it will be reviewed by the respective participating broadcaster of your country;
You should apply in the International Delegation if you are representing an International News Agency/outlet, International Community Media, Agency/International photographer or if you are NOT legally based in one of the participating countries.
Applications will be reviewed no later than Friday, 13 April. However, to give all applicants certainty about whether their application has been accepted or rejected well ahead of the event, the EBU and Participating Broadcasters aim to review applications as soon as possible.
You will receive an email when the status of your application changes. You can also see the status of your application on your Accredion dashboard at any time.
The EBU's Code of Conduct is applicable to, and binding upon, all individuals submitting an application for accreditation to the Eurovision Song Contest and/or all individuals accredited to the Eurovision Song Contest and/or are given an Accreditation Card (including any holders of TLA).
