QUALIFICATION CRITERIA

CA will exercise discretion in issuing accreditation. Factors considered in exercising this discretion may include (but are not limited to):

•    Whether an applicant works in a recognised news or sports publication, agency, or website which is available to the general public;

•    Whether the applicant is known by Cricket Australia or other affiliate recognised by Cricket Australia;

•    Safety and security concerns;

•    Genuine issues of space;

•    The need to ensure representation across international, national and local media;

•    Appropriate consideration as to the reach of a media organisation’s coverage, and for news agencies, the scale of client base.

DEADLINE

Applications for Cricket Australia’s media accreditation must be submitted before Friday September 26. No applications will be approved prior to this deadline.

Any applicants who submit their application after the deadline must understand that there is a high risk that their application will not be approved due to limited capacity at our international venues.
