Apply for Accreditation

Royal Ascot

Press Accreditation for Royal Ascot 2021 will depend on government guidelines and restrictions at the time. More information will be communicated in due course. 

Ascot Racedays

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of press and media permitted on site is hugely restricted and managed by the HWPA/RCA. 

If you are a journalist or a photographer and wish to apply for press accreditation to an Ascot Raceday, please email [email protected] and include full contact details for yourself and the editor of the publication you are commissioned by. Please note that all freelancers must be commissioned by a publication and have evidence of this along with examples of previous work in print. Any photographers must hold public liability insurance and be able to provide a copy. Ascot Racecourse reserves the right to ask for additional information / supporting documentation before granting accreditation.

If you are a broadcaster, please email [email protected]
