Press and fans can start to apply for accreditation for Eurovision Song Contest 2013 on Thursday, January 17. Accreditation happens online and closes on April 21st. There are two different types of accreditation; one for press and another for fans.
Fans: A maximum of 390 fan accreditations can be assigned this year. Fans with this accreditation have access to be inside the arena during Open Rehearsals and during the first Dress Rehearsal of each event. They also have access to EuroClub, to a dedicated Fan Area and if possible, to attend opening- and afterparties. Fan accreditation doesn’t grant a ticket for any of the live shows.
Press: Representatives of media which are available to the public in sales outlets, through publically accessible radio frequencies, television channels or internet sites can get a press accreditation.
Each application will be reviewed by the delegation you applied for, or by the EBU if coming from a non-participating country.
