Het is belangrijk dat journalisten zich kunnen identificeren als journalist tijdens ons festival bijvoorbeeld tijdens Pride Walk, Pride Park, Pride at the Beach etc. Daarnaast is het hebben van een persaccreditatie belangrijk voor bijvoorbeeld toegang tot ons perscentrum en de bootparade.

Press accreditations

The Amsterdam Gay Pride facilitates and organizes together with its partners a nine—day festival, which offers a variety of events. The media are welcome at our festival. Media need a general press accreditation. There are also a few specific moments that the media needs a accreditation.

You need a general press accreditation if you want to be present at activities, meetings, parties, canal parade etc as a journalist. It is important that you can identify yourself as a journalist at these activities like Pride Walk, Pride Park, Pride at the Beach etc. The accreditation is for example also especially important to gain access to the press center of Pride Amsterdam and the canal parade.

Canal Parade August 4th

We have two types of accreditations during the Canal Parade.

1          Photographers who work for for their own websites/ social media, can obtain accreditation for a press section at the Prinsengracht. In exchange for access to these press section, the Amsterdam Gay Pride Foundation (AGP) receives 10 photos of your choice. Duty-free (with attribution) may be used for promotional purposes by AGP. If you do not want access to the press section, no problem. Photographers can do their work anywhere in the city, along the route, between the public, but you still need a general accreditation (see above).
