Accreditation process

The organizing committee and the French Canoe Federation may decide to grant the following accreditations to the media :

  • Journalists with a professional press card
  • Professional photographers

Requests for accreditation should be sent by email to presse@ffck.org with an photo identity and a scan of the press card or business card.

Media center

Media center is a dedicated area for accredited media, fully equipped to cater to all media needs. It is composed of work spaces, information office and many other services.

The FFCK media team will be present to answer questions and requests from media people.

Screens will be there to enable the media to follow competitions from the different places. Free and dedicated WiFi will be available at the media center. Internet by Ethernet cable could also be available for free.

The media center will be opened every day 30 minutes before the competition starts and will close 1hour after the end of the competition.

 Mixed zone

The mixed zone allows accredited media to be close to the athletes for interviews after the competition. It will be activated as soon as the competition begins. Media who wish to use the mixed zone need to be there before the athlete they would like to interview reaches the zone. The organizing committee and the French Canoe Federation encourage all athletes to take time to go to mixed zone. But if athletes are not forced to stop there to give interviews. That is why we request the media to respect the athlete’s choice.

The different media categories are positioned as follows in the mixed zone:

  • TV (Right holders)
  • TV
  • Radio
  • Press

Only the TV right holders will have a single position into the mixed zone. The others will be in group.

Media cannot ask the athletes in the arrival area to pass via the mixed zone. The mixed zone is not mandatory except during the finals.

Flash interview area 

The Flash interview area will be located closed to the media center. It will allow accredited media to fix appointments with athletes for interviews before or after the competitions. All photographs have to be taken in the zones allotted by the press team.

All request for French teams have to be done with the Press service at the media center. The Press service will try as far as possible to answer positively to the requests.

 Photographers

In addition to the accreditation, photographers will have to wear a chasuble in order to go to photographers’ area around the competition site. They are not allowed to go outside these areas. They have to be careful about not blocking public visibility. Judges at the gates can ask a photographer to leave his position if necessary if it causes a problem for the competition judgement. When the photographer is near the water, he is not allowed to touch any element from the competition site.

Each photographer will have a brief upon arrival by the media team.

Chasuble

The chasuble is an additional accreditation to allow photographers to reach dedicated areas. Accreditation card is mandatory with the chasuble. These elements cannot be dissociated. If they are, the photographer will not be allowed to go to reserved areas.

Chasubles are given at the media center’s reception in exchange for an identity document and have to be returned at the end of the World Championships. The media team can ask for a 50 € deposit.

Award Ceremonies

A media zone will be located in front of the podium area. Access to this area is free and accessible to all photographers and cameramen. In case of overcrowding, media team is entitled to ask some accredited media persons to leave the zone in order to prioritise right holders and photographers from the organizing committee.

Non-right holders are requested to respect the priority granted to broadcasting partners.

TV and radio staffs (as well as press and online media) who are non-right holders are not allowed to shoot or broadcast the competition. They are only entitled to shoot films at the mixed zone and flash interview area.

All cameramen of right-holding TV firms must wear the chasubles given by the media team.

Each media acknowledges the rules and recognizes rights and duties. If a media does not conform to these rules, their chasuble and accreditation can be withdrawn.
