Press & Photographer Passes for 2019
To streamline press sign-on for this year’s meeting, East Coast MCC are offering photographers the opportunity to register their interest with us at our press launch on Sunday, 28th July, 2019 at Skerries Rugby Club. Invites will be sent to all usual publications and those who have covered the races previously.
If you can join us at our press launch, please bring all necessary paperwork, which should include clippings of published work, your ID and a cover letter from a bona fide publication or media organisation. This letter must be printed on company headed paper, signed by the proprietor or editor and must state the name of the event which you are commissioned to cover. Company contact details must be included for verification purposes. If you are unable to make the launch and wish to register your interest, please RSVP to the club secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 26th July for more details.
If your application is successful, you will be notified by e-mail and then issued with a press pass prior to the event. Your press pass will be unique to you and is non-transferable. On the day, you will need to sign-on on arrival, producing your photographer pass. More details will be sent to all successful applicants along with their pass, prior to the event.
Please note, there will be no press / photographer registrations on practice or race day!
This year we will also be providing bibs to all successfully registered press / photographers. We ask for a €10 deposit on the bib on sign-on, which will be returned in full on return of the bib.
Press/Photographers are not allowed in Prohibited Areas and must adhere to the instructions of the marshals around the course. Each press pass and bib will be numbered by the Club and if there is an issue, the number will be reported back to the Race Secretary and the Clerk of the Course, the pass will be revoked and you will be asked to leave the circuit.
