Media Accreditation

PLEASE NOTE: All requests for media accreditation must be received before close of business Friday 27th January 2017. No applications received after this date will be considered.

A limited number of applicants will be granted accreditation for the 2017 Legend Fires North West Stages. Those granted accreditation MUST attend signing-on at Rally HQ, Norbreck Castle Hotel before 5.00pm, Friday 24th February 2017.

Level 1 accredited media will be issued with event specific passes and tabards (a 20.00 refundable deposit will be required) which must be worn at all times when attending special stages.

Level 2 accredited media will be issued with event specific passes and must wear their MSA issued ID and tabard at all times when attending special stages.

We are only able to grant Special Stage Access to those media that are accredited with MSA 'Level Two Media'. Non MSA Accredited Media & MSA Level One Media will only be granted access to designated spectator areas on certain Special Stages, plus access to the Rally Village and Service Area.

The North West Stages and MSA's primary concern is the safety of participants in UK motor sports, whether competitors, volunteers, spectators or the media. RallyFuture is the MSA campaign to help ensure a bright future for stage rallying in the UK by promoting and further enhancing safety.

Primarily, RallyFuture entails implementing 29 recommendations from the Motorsport Event Safety Review (MESR), which was set up by the Scottish Government following the 2014 Jim Clark Rally. One of these recommendations calls for a robust accreditation system for rally media.

The MSA Rally Media Accreditation is underpinned by a Code of Conduct, plus strict conditions. It features two levels to cater for the different needs of journalists and photographers/broadcasters:

Every Level 1 application must be accompanied by an original letter signed by the publication Editor or Picture Editor stating that the applicant is authorised to work on their behalf at the 2017 Legend Fires North West Stages. A letter signed only by the applicant is not acceptable. Please continue to complete and submit this application form. If your application meets our criteria you will be emailed an address to which you must send your signed letter and/or cuttings.

The Editor's letter must confirm the circulation and frequency of the publication, when the event report will be published and the amount of space scheduled for the written report and photographs. In the case of applications from TV, Radio Stations and websites, the same rule should apply.

If the applicant or publication was previously accredited, the current application must be supported by cuttings of their published work (reports and / or pictures).

Photographers who are not working for a recognised publication will therefore be deemed to be 'commercial photographers' and not 'press photographers' and will not be granted media accreditation.
