MEDIA EMPOWERMENT POLICY
All registered media may tape the Friday, Saturday and Sunday briefing and strategy sessions, except those designated otherwise by the presenters or activists as not open for taping. The introductory presentations on Saturday morning will be recorded only by Conference Recording Services and copies will be available for purchase from them at the site Sunday afternoon. Other cameras and recording devices will be allowed during these and all sessions but we only have 3 audio feeds per room so make your claim early.
Press/Media passes will be included in the price of registration. In order to receive these passes, participants will be required to register as such with the conference organizing committee (at the registration desk) and sign an agreement acknowledging acceptance of this Media Policy. Passes must be worn at all times during the conference.
We strongly encourages anyone interested in being the media to record these sessions. Participate in making the message! To the extent possible, we will facilitate the distribution of video and audio at the event. We ask media pass holders to share their footage, and/or subsequent productions using footage from conference events with us, and we will select submissions for inclusion on the conference multimedia page.
