Media access to all CHOGM 2011 venues will be controlled via the use of accreditation passes which will be issued to approved persons on arrival in Perth, Western Australia.
Media accreditation is open to journalists, editors, photographers, sound and camera crews and technical staff attached to media organisations and freelance media personnel.
To apply for media accreditation, media must complete an application form by selecting either the Domestic (based in Australia) or International (based outside of Australia) links below.
Media accreditation will allow access to the Media Centre within the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC), use of the facilities within the Centre and media pool opportunities. Accredited media will not be provided with access to the Delegate Zone within the PCEC unless they are taking part in an official media opportunity.
