Press card also for part-time journalists

A press card serves as evidence of a journalistic activity to third parties. Who, for example, works as a freelance journalist and researches on behalf of an editorial office or for a documentary requires access to certain events or locations. Without a press card this is often not possible. The press card is therefore a necessary working tool. The document supports the owner in carrying out his activity and exercising his right for information and is often used to gain access to providers of special conditions for the press. A press card makes it easier for authorities to determine whether a person is officially working as a representative of the media.

Immediately useable worldwide: The international press card (IPC)

What is the use of a press card from a national association if you work far away from home? Many institutions, organisers and companies abroad offer considerable preferential conditions or make you work as a journalist a lot easier if provided with an international press card.
