Valid credentials include:

  • An official, valid press ID (membership IDs from journalist organizations are not considered press IDs)
  • An imprint that verifies your activity as a correspondent and is no more than six months old
  • An article published under your name that is no more than six months old (for photographers: Photo credit)
