Media Organisations seeking accreditation to take Editorial Images at Victorian thoroughbred race meetings during the 2020-21 racing season, being the period from 1 August 2020 to 31 July 2021, are required to complete and submit the following online Photography Pass Application Form.
Before completing the Photography Pass Application Form, Media Organisations are required to read both the Terms and Conditions of photography accreditation, and the Privacy Collection Statement – Photography Passes:
Terms and Conditions – Victorian Racing Photography Accreditation
Privacy Collection Statement – Photography Passes
Please note that, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and Racing Victoria’s necessary biosecurity measures, the only media permitted to attend race meetings at this time are representatives of the official TV broadcasters (Racing.com and Channel 7) and the official industry photographers (Racing Photos). This order is current as at 15 September 2020 and is being regularly reviewed in line with Government directives and the number of COVID-19 cases within Victoria.
If the application for a Photography Pass is approved, the Media Organisation’s nominated photographer(s) will be required to complete a Safe Work for Photographers Induction and complete an online form acknowledging their intention to adhere to the Terms and Conditions agreed to by the Media Organisation.
Upon satisfactory completion of this induction and acknowledgement, the Media Organisation’s nominated photographer(s) will be issued with the relevant 2020-21 Racing Victoria Photography Pass at the point at which restrictions on media attendance owing to the COVID-19 pandemic have been lifted and the nominated photographer has been granted approval in writing by Racing Victoria to attend a Racecourse.
