Journalists without UN credentials who wish to attend the UNPFII session with professional equipment should submit an online application on the Web site of the Media Accreditation and Liaison Unit: http://www.un.org/en/media/accreditation/request.shtml. They will need to upload a letter of assignment on official letterhead from a bone fide media organization, signed by publisher, assignment editor or bureau chief, saying that the journalist is assigned to cover the UNPFII session. Approved applicants will receive an email confirmation with instructions for picking up the credentials.
Individuals with NGO accreditation will not be issued press credentials. Letters of assignment from NGOs will not be accepted for press credentials.
Without media accreditation, Indigenous community media will not be able to bring professional cameras and equipment in to the United Nations.
