Please note that we cannot accept applications for media credentials from representatives of media outlets that are not directly involved in journalism.

Journalists, photographers, videographers and community educators who are either employees of or on assignment for a recognized print, radio, broadcast or online consumer, medical, community-based or AIDS service organization-sponsored media outlet are eligible to apply for complimentary media registration. Please note that for the purpose of media accreditation, the term, “community educator”, refers to anyone doing journalism for AIDS service organizations (ASOs) or other community-based media outlets.

Communications support professionals attached to a recognized HIV research, advocacy or policy organization, whose work is directly related to supporting media coverage of presentations at AIDS 2020: Virtual are not considered media and must register as a regular delegate. Media accreditation for this category is not guaranteed, but is granted on a case-by-case basis.
