The European Softball Federations is offering photographers the opportunity to apply for official accreditation for our tournaments during the 2017 season.

Official accreditation allows photographers access to the media areas at our tournaments which include special reserved seating areas as well as media facilities (where applicable). Only accredited photographers will be allowed access to these restricted areas.

The ESF is offering two types of photographer accreditation for the coming season.

Regular Accreditation:   Accreditation at ESF tournaments provides you with a great opportunity to get close to the action with access to special reserved seating areas during games. In addition, you also have access to the media areas and facilities at the tournament (where applicable).  

Priority Accreditation:   As the name suggests, this accreditation gives you priority access to the reserved media area and media facilities (where applicable). You will also have a link to your photography website from the “Recommended” section of the ESF website as well as an opportunity to showcase your softball photographs in the ESF online galleries. In exchange for this level of accreditation, you will undertake to provide the ESF with a minimum of 50 photographs from the event for our marketing and promotional use, some of which may be required without a watermark.  

Please note that applications are assessed on a case by case basis. If you would like to apply for official photographer accreditation please fill in the application form. For further details, please contact Helena Novotna, ESF Communications Director via email
