Media credential registration for the 2017 SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In & Expo is now open!
Please read through these terms and conditions carefully as some requirements have changed. Failure to comply with the terms and conditions listed on this form will result in the denial of credentials for the 2017 SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In & Expo.
Credential Request Form
All media outlets requesting media credential and admission wristbands for working media representatives at the SUN ‘n FUN event should complete the Media Credential Request Form below in accordance with the instructions. Additional information may be found on the Media Credential Request Requirement Page.
The assigning media outlet must make all credential requests for staff, freelance writers and/or photographers being assigned to cover SUN ‘n FUN. Note: If the person making the request is planning to be credentialed, that name should be repeated on the form as one of the attendees.
Recommended request quantities are:
• Video/Film crews – limit 4 crew and 2 talent
• Radio or Podcast crews – limit 2 crew and 2 talent
• Print or Internet media – limit 1 photographer and 1 reporter
Exceptions may be made by sending a request with the explanation in an email to email@example.com
No freelance photographers or writers will be issued media credentials except as identified by a media outlet or airshow performer (one photographer credentialed per airshow performer team/individual.) Please see Media Credential Request Requirement Page.
SUN ŉ FUN reserves the right to require additional information and may approve or reject credential requests at its discretion. Included in the form again this year is a request for a hyperlink to prior coverage of the SUN ‘n FUN event. This section of the form MUST be completed, or SUN ‘n FUN holds the right to deny credentials.
Blog administrators, writers, bloggers, podcast sites or social media publishers will not be considered for media credentials unless proper documentation of the site’s history can be provided. Such documentation includes established period of existence, traffic/subscriber data, and previous coverage of aviation or SNF events. If outlet is social-media-only, follower data (minimum 15,000 followers on all channels combined) may be submitted in lieu of traffic data.
SUN ‘n FUN will consider media credential requests from individuals who help promote our events on their media-based websites or social media. (As a 501(c)(3), your contribution to SUN ‘n FUN can be considered a donation and we will pass any request from your company to our finance department for proper acknowledgement.)
Photographers – each photographer assigned by a qualifying media outlet is entitled to one media credential for themselves. The request must be sent from the media outlet – not the individual photographer. No assistants or other crew members are eligible for credentials. (Exceptions will be handled on a case-by-case basis.) Airshow Performers are allowed one (1) media credential for a photographer identified by a team/individual performer.
As we review entries on our website, we will be looking for verification shown above.
Our ability to verify the status of qualified working press at the start of the event is limited, and may result in the denial of credential requests. In that case, you have the option to purchase daily and/or weekly tickets, but will not be granted access to the SUN ’n FUN Media Center. (Note: Press IDs from organizations that charge a fee for the ID are not sufficient for media credentials.)
By accepting media credentials, you acknowledge your understanding and acceptance of SUN ’n FUN’s broadcast, film, video, trademark and copyright policies, and further understand that the issuance of the SUN ‘n FUN Media Credential and admission to the SUN ’n FUN campus is conditional upon your acceptance of the policies.
Any personnel over that limit will be subject to regular admission rates.
Registered media representative e-mail addresses are collected for the purpose of forwarding news updates and press releases from SUN ŉ FUN throughout the year. This list will not be shared with exhibitors, sponsors, vendors or event guests.
SUN ‘n FUN is soliciting promotional support from all of our media partners. This can also be used in lieu of available historical coverage information. In exchange for first-time media credentials, we are requesting that the SUN ‘n FUN event poster (or SnF logo with event dates) with a link to the current Annual SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In & Expo page on the SUN ’n FUN website be placed on the front page of your website no later than March 1, 2017. You may choose to simply include editorial copy about the event. A tax-deductible statement is available to the media outlet for the value of any advertising promotion.
A current, unique, verifiable e-mail address and cell phone for each individual for whom you are requesting credentials must be provided. Do not use one email address for all individuals on the property. Guests and family members not identified via unique media outlet email address that may be accompanying credentialed media representatives to the event will be asked to purchase admission tickets.
Please complete all fields on the form before submitting and do not submit a second form with changes. Communicate any concerns directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Approval of media credential requests will be issued by e-mail in a timely process. The approval e-mail will extend our welcome and provide details concerning event admission, parking, media hospitality, and site transportation. On-line credential requests will be accepted through March 25, 2017.
Each individual identified in the approval letter must be able to present a photo identification to the parking guard and also in the media center. We look forward to welcoming you to SUN ‘n FUN!
