BEIRUT, Lebanon, May 23, 2017: Media accreditation is now open for the Draw Ceremony of the FIBA Asia Cup 2017 Draw set to take place in Lebanon on Tuesday May 30 2017.
The ceremony will take place at the Le Royal Hotel Dbayeh, starting 11 am local time. All media representatives who wish to attend the event are kindly requested to apply using the FIBA Media Portal.
The deadline for submitting applications is May 27. The application information submitted will be subject to a review process.
Successful applicants will be notified by FIBA’s Regional Office in Asia; completing the application form does not automatically guarantee accreditation.
A proper and valid, electronic version of a portrait photo (headshot) of the applicant must be uploaded during the procedure. Applications that do not include a proper and valid photo may not be considered.
In order to be considered for media credentials, an applicant must represent a bona fide media organisation that produces and publishes original content.
Applications for media credentials by club representatives, agents, educational booklet authors, fan bloggers, or media that do not produce original content based on generally accepted news gathering criteria will not be considered.
Freelancers (writers, photographers and videographers) may be asked to prove that they are on assignment with a media outlet in order to be considered for credentials.
Credentials will be awarded on basis of the professional history of the applying media, relevance to the event and basketball in general, as well as space availability.
