You may only use our International Press Card during your journalistic work. Private utilisation is prohibited.
The International Press Card is imprinted on the PVC cards with the thermo-transfer printing process (Norm ISO/IEC 7810). The card has the following measurements: 85,60 mm × 53,98 mm.
The appearance of the card equals the picture above but can deviate in colour. Especially the background and contrast might differ in colour. The background could brigthen due to the printing process.
The signature field stays empty and is not especially roughened for the signature. We recommend a permanent marker in the right size for your signature.
The relevant fields are filled with your stated information without any further check. The edges of the card can not be printed, causing a small gap where you can see the white card. The emblem-alike sign on the lower left of the card, is not a hologram. This sign shows the date of issue. The circular sign, up in the right corner, shows the date of expiry.
The International Press Card is issued by Protex-Media Agency and is in no way related to any press association or institution. The accreditation at events is left to the organizer himself. Our International Press Card is in no way a guarantee for accreditaion, (disclosure of) information, entrance or access!
