ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY FRIDAY AUGUST 19. Applications received after AUG 19 will be considered on a case by case basis.
MMVAF and the festival’s publicists Mucho Bravado define “Media” as journalists, photographers, editors or producers who have a verified and specific editorial assignment to cover the festival for a specific, recognized media outlet (print, online, radio, TV) that generates original articles or reviews about the festival.
We will not accept applications from freelance media who are not on a confirmed assignment. If you are a freelancer, an editor’s letter must be emailed to email@example.com on publication letterhead at the same time as your application or it will not be considered.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All applicants will be contacted and informed whether their application is successful or not. Success or failure of all media accreditation applications is entirely at the discretion of the publicists. All decisions communicated to accreditation applicants will be final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into.
