Media Application Request 

Thank you for applying for a media credential for the 2023 Winter Equestrian Festival.
Please fill out the following form and we will contact you regarding your accreditation. A separate form request for each person must be submitted. If you have questions, please email news@wellingtoninternational.com. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours or more from submitting the credential form to getting a pass printed and available for pick up.

By applying for and accepting a media credential, you agree that the pass will be used for media purposes only. Any photographers using a media pass may only use their photos for media usage - photos cannot be sold or given away to exhibitors.


A Private Photographer pass or PR Photographer pass (separate from a media credential) must be issued if you plan to give or sell photos for exhibitor/competitor use. Private Photographers and PR Photographers collect payment in exchange for services. Private Photographers are recognized as individuals/companies who exclusively give or sell photos/videos to clients. PR Photographers represent an agency that may give or sell photos to clients, but also fulfill other responsibilities and create content (such as an online editorial or other promotion) that benefits the 2023 Winter Equestrian Festival. Please fill out the following form for a Private Photographer or PR Photographer pass if you plan to photograph for clients at WEF. Click here
