Applying for Media Credential

Belk Bowl Credential Policy:

The Belk Bowl credential policy is designed to best allocate credentials in order to maximize coverage in a safe, professional working environment. Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate all requests.

Credential requests are considered only for authorized full-time, salaried representatives.

All unaffiliated freelance journalist/photographers must have an assignment editor from an established media outlet apply for them to be considered.

Subject to limitations of space, credentials will be assigned to accredited media in accordance with the following general priorities:
• Media outlets which have covered ALL games of a participating team.
• Media outlets which have covered all HOME games of a participating team.
• Media outlets at the game site which regularly cover the Belk Bowl on a year-round basis.
• Media outlets that have covered the Belk Bowl nationally on a year-round basis.
