Accreditation in 2017

Accreditation for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest is now open

To apply for accreditation, create a profile for yourself on the Eurovision Family Accreditation System (EFAS) and submit your application to the relevant delegation for review (if you already have a profile from a previous application, you do not need to make a new profile to apply). Your application must include a picture.

Press and Fan Accreditation

Each entrant must assign themselves within a relevant media type and role. Please ensure you submit these details carefully, as invalid/false submissions will not be processed by EFAS.

Applications from International News Agencies/outlets, International Community Media, and outlets established in a non-participating country will be reviewed by the International Delegation.

Agency/International photographer applications will be reviewed by the International Delegation. Photographers representing outlets from participating countries will be reviewed by the Head of Delegation of the relevant country.

Please ensure correct contact details are included when you submit, in case there are any problems with your application.
