IPC Press Releases: The International Paralympic Committee IPC Opens Media Accreditation process for non-rights holding broadcasters interested in attending the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Interested broadcast organizations, who have not acquired the broadcasting rights to the London 2012 Paralympics, can apply via the IPC’s website at www.paralympic.org/events until 17 February 2012. After this deadline, the IPC will evaluate all applications before moving to the next step of the accreditation process.
As in previous Paralympic Games, written press and photographers will apply for media accreditation via their respective National Paralympic Committee (NPC). In order to ensure a successful and high-quality media coverage of the Paralympic Games, the NPCs are responsible for ensuring and confirming that the organizations and individuals being accredited are genuine recognized media professionals. Contact information for all NPCs can be found here: http://www.paralympic.org/IPC/Contacts/NPCs/index.html.

The London 2012 Paralympic Games will take place from 29 August to 9 September of next year. More than 4,200 athletes from 150 countries are expected to come to the British capital and compete for the medals in 20 sports.
