Accreditation (before closing)

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 2017 contest in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Step 1: Create a MyEurovision account
You can apply for press (P) or fan (F) accreditation to the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest with a MyEurovision account. You can apply for an account here. If you already have a MyEurovision account from a previous application, you do not need to create a new profile.
Step 2: Submitting your application
After logging on to your MyEurovision account, you can choose to start the application process by clicking on the accreditation tab in the left-hand column. During your application, please pay special attention to the following:
  • Make sure all information you submit is complete and accurate. Applications with incomplete or incorrect information could be rejected.
  • Do not apply more than once. Applying more than once could lead to rejection of your application.
  • Ensure that the photo you submit along with your application meets the specified requirements.
You can save your application during the process and submit your application once all information in complete. After submitting your application, you can no longer make changes to the submitted information.
Step 3: Awaiting review
After submitting your application, it will be reviewed by the participating broadcaster of the country you're applying from.In case you apply from a non-participating country, or on behalf of an international news/photo agency, or on behalf of an international fan community outlet, your application will become part of the so-called International Delegation. These applications will be reviewed by the EBU's public relations agency.
You will receive an email to inform you whether your application has been granted. You can also review the status of your application by logging on to your MyEurovision account.
Please be advised that it may take up to several weeks for your application to be reviewed.
