50th Pacific Islands Forum & Related Meetings, Tuvalu, 13-16 August, 2019
Media Accreditation Information
Media are requested to access and complete their registrations and accreditation using this form: Click here for Accreditation Form
Accommodation for media representatives will be designated by the Government of Tuvalu and is covered in the registration process.
Media who have pre-arranged accommodation i.e. through Member country delegations, and require accreditation only, should note this on their registration form.
There are limited beds available for media, and if places are over-subscribed, the Forum Secretariat will have to undertake a selection/ballot process. This will be conducted on an equitable basis, however priority will be given to media from Forum Member Countries.
Late registrations will be accepted but media are encouraged to register early to ensure confirmed accommodation.
If you have flight details, please lodge them in the form. (Please Note: We advise you to NOT book your flight until your accreditation is confirmed, due to accommodation restrictions, it is possible we may need to pool media places. Flight information can be provided at a later date by accredited media. Media travelling under a Member country’s official delegation with pre-arranged accommodation can provide flight details)
A media programme and venues will be advised in due course.
A media centre is available for use for accredited media.
Media Workshop & Funding
PINA, PACMAS and PIFS will provide a training opportunity (political reporting masterclass and supported story-telling) as part of the PIF programme. Date is yet to be confirmed. Funding is available for a number of Pacific-based journalists to participate in this training and attend the Leaders Meeting. Please email Catrina Rowe firstname.lastname@example.org separately to your accreditation to register your interest for this opportunity.
