Media Credential Request
Betsy Bennett, Goodguys
The following media credential guidelines were established to provide an overview of the procedures followed by Goodguys in processing media credential requests and a clear understanding of the guidelines for media access at event sites.
Goodguys will issue media credentials to members of the working press. By definition, a member of the working press shall be a paid employee or representative of a known and established media organization (newspaper, magazine, television, radio, website, etc.). Journalists who receive credentials must be on assignment for a specific media organization at each event. All journalists who wish to attend any Goodguys events must submit a media credential application pursuant to this policy and the guidelines stated above.. Freelance journalists must be on assignment at the specific event or must submit a media credential application indicating the scope and purpose of the requested coverage. Organizations may request more than one media credential per event for coverage. Each name must be submitted separately for each credentials.
III. Application Deadlines
Since there are 21 events in the Goodguys 2015 event series, it is recommended that you submit your credential request a minimum of least two (2) weeks out from the start of the event. Credentials can be added after that deadline but it is preferred Goodguys Media Management that they be submitted in a timely manner.
IV. Credential Acceptance
Once you have been approved by Goodguys, you will receive an email with the acceptance information for your media credentials.
V. Credential Usage
Credentials must be used by person it was issued to. Credentials may not be given or loaned to another person for any reason. Credentialed journalists will receive free admission to the event and access to media work areas at the event venue, as well as any other areas where media accreditation is provided access. A media credential does not guarantee access to the AutoCross area, drag racing restricted areas, etc. The credentialed media will most often have access to these areas but it is not guaranteed.
Misuse of a media credential will result in the immediate loss of the credential, removal from the media areas and the possible loss of credential privileges for future events for the journalist and his/her organization.
VI. Interview Policy
Goodguys will be glad to provide opportunities for the media to interview requested individuals. Any interview requests from automotive media should be directed to Betsy Bennett, Goodguys at email@example.com or via telephone at 503-246-0237 (office) or 503-701-3219 (cell).
Requests for taped footage, radio interviews and/or scheduling of live shots for television, may be requested by contacting Betsy Bennett, Goodguys, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By continuing with this submission, you implicitly agree to the Terms and Conditions stated above.
