Accreditation

Every year, some 1,550 journalists from over 80 countries gather to cover the Eurovision Song Contest live. On this page, we would like to provide you with practical information about the press accreditation process in the lead up to the 2019 contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.

To apply for press/fan accreditation to the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, the EBU uses an online accreditation platform called Accredion.

How to apply

The acccreditation window for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv is now closed. Information about late accreditation will be made available shortly.

If you, or your media outlet, are legally based in one of the participating countries, you should apply in that particular group in accordance with the instructions in the Accreditation Handbook.

Reviewing

After submitting your application, it will be reviewed by the EBU or the respective country's Participating Broadcaster.
Applications have been reviewed by Friday, 8 March 2019. However, to give all applicants certainty about whether their application has been accepted or rejected well ahead of the event, EBU and the 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.
