The EAU21 Virtual Congress is open to bona fide representatives of print and electronic media. The EAU is happy to offer discretionary free of charge registration to journalists who work at a news organisation that features original, editorial news coverage, that has editorial freedom from advertisers and/or sponsors, and in which advertisers and/or sponsors are clearly identified as such.
In order to be accredited for the Congress, media representatives are expected to actively report on the 36th Annual EAU Congress.
To be eligible for free press registration, applicants must write exclusively for the news organisation and provide the following materials for verification:
- Letter verifying assignment to the 36th Annual EAU Congress (EAU21 Virtual) on the letterhead of the news organisation being represented.
- Two bylined medical/health/science articles/videos/reports published within the last year, coverage from the previous year’s meeting (if applicable), and a copy of the publication.
- Media identification such as an international, accredited press pass or an official media-outlet-issued credential, dated 2020-2021.
Representatives of publishing houses, the business side of news media, and for-profit corporations will not be accredited as press and will not be eligible for complimentary press registration. Editors of journals or other publications who do not report for or edit their outlet’s news section will also not be accredited as press and are not eligible for free press registration. If in doubt, please ask the EAU Press Office in advance.
