This is the place to come to for all your operational planning needs for the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games. We will be continually updating this page with information needed for broadcasters and media coming to Ashgabat in September.
Broadcast Accreditation will open shortly. Information on accreditation, including the Broadcast Accreditation Guide will be available on the Ashgabat 2017 website soon.
The deadline for media accreditation applications is 15 July 2017. There is no guarantee that applications received after this date will be processed in time to receive a pre-valid card before you travel to Turkmenistan. Your pre-valid card acts as a visa for you to enter the country.
The Media Accreditation Guide, application and consent form can be downloaded from the important documents section.
Media accreditation is available in three categories:
- E – Journalist, editor
- EP – Photographer
- ENR – Non-rightsholding Broadcaster
Media from organisations based in participating NOCs. If your media organisation is based in one of the participating Asian or Oceania NOCs you must apply for accreditation directly with the NOC. Please contact your country’s NOC press attaché or media contact for details of the application process. Note that your NOC may have an application deadline much earlier than 15 July to allow enough time for processing before submitting to Ashgabat 2017.
Media from organisations based in non-participating NOCs. If your media organisation is NOT based in one of the participating Asian or Oceania NOCs, you must apply for accreditation directly with Ashgabat 2017.
Please submit your application and all supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
