ACCREDITATION

All rights holders and non-rights holders must register by November 22, 2021 to request onsite media accreditation for the Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup.

Infront Sports & Media hold the world-wide multimedia rights for the Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup and to protect these rights, any audiovisual including sound and/or video of training runs, races, podium ceremonies or interviews is not permitted, unless approved as a rights holder in advance.

Non-rights holders can apply for rights holder audiovisual permissions through our registration process and we’ll deliver and manage the request with Infront Sports & Media on your behalf. Approvals will not be granted to non-rights holders seeking rights holder permission for the restricted mix zone. 

If audiovisual of training runs, races, podium ceremonies or interviews is not necessary, non-rights holders must still receive approval to enter the race venue with a sound and/or filming device. Approved activities in designated areas for the purposes of story-telling and promotion of the event and destination will be at the discretion of Infront Sports & Media and the Race Organizing Committee.

If you are a non-rights holder you must agree to the Infront Sports & Media audiovisual policy to receive media accreditation, even if you do not plan to use a sound and/or filming device in the race venue. The audiovisual policy is part of registration and you must agree to its terms to receive onsite media accreditation.

Rights holders who have been approved directly with Infront Sports & Media must also register to receive onsite accreditation and access to media services.

You will need to create or update your profile at the time of registration to be approved for onsite media accreditation.
