This program is ideal for local and regional events in the USA. This “The Gain Access Program” program was inaugurated in 1986. The backbone of this unique program is Today’s Photographer magazine and American Image Press. IFPO member photographers and journalists are on assignment for the magazine and are encouraged to submit their work to other outlets as well. The editorial staff provides support for you to gain access to the events you choose.
This program is ideal for all kinds of events and is particularly effective in North America and Western Europe. Designed for the toughest barriers, gates and doors. In addition, members report that wearing the hard card badge with lanyard while traveling can yield discounts and preferential treatment. As a US Press Corps member, you are among a distinct and impressive group. In many situations, because it is highly visible and recognized, this can carry more clout than other credentials.
This program is the most recognized and ideal for veteran photographers who concentrate on high profile events of international interest. Recognized and widely accepted globally. IFPO’s veteran press members use this program to push into global calamities and war zones. From Hurricane Katrina, Haitian Earthquake, Indonesian Tsunami . . . to Iraq War, Afghanistan War, Sudan Civil Strife, and 2022 Ironman World Championships. IFPO members working from the field asked for each item and service that is currently included in the package, making it the most successful press program available through IFPO.
