Media Credentials

Policy

Media accreditation is reserved for reporters, writers, videographers, producers and photographers who work for established media outlets. Media credentials will be issued to members of the working media, including production personnel, in the radio, newspaper, digital, magazine and television industries assigned to cover the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™.

Freelancers, photographers, bloggers and digital journalists applying for accreditation must provide a letter of assignment from an official publisher or editor with clear assignment details, or provide a detailed explanation of planned coverage.

While all applications will be reviewed and considered, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo reserves the right to deny any media accreditation application.
