Media accreditation is reserved for reporters, writers, videographers, producers and photographers who work for established media outlets. Media credentials will be issued to members of the working media, including production personnel in the radio, newspaper, digital, magazine and television industries assigned to cover the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™.
Freelancers, photographers, bloggers and digital journalists applying for accreditation must provide a letter of assignment from an official publisher or editor with clear assignment details.
All outlets must provide a detailed explanation of planned coverage.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will make the final decision on all credential applications based on availability and the size, scope and circulation of an individual outlet.
While all applications will be reviewed and considered, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo reserves the right to deny any media accreditation application.
Misuse of a media credential may result in the immediate revoking of the credential, removal from the media areas and loss of future credential privileges.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo reserves the right to revoke credential privileges for any reason.
Past approval of credentials to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo does not guarantee approval for the current year.
