In order to be approved for credentials, applications must be submitted by working members of the media on editorial assignment. Please read the attached agreement, fill it out, sign and submit it to [email protected] by June 8 for consideration.
NOTE: Due to space constraints at Rhodes Skate Park, there will be limited areas for media members to capture photos and video of X Games athletes during practices only. For this reason, we will be limiting each news outlet to two press passes (good for both days). Journalists covering the event will need to check in with Boise Parks and Recreation Communications Manager Bonnie Shelton upon arrival at the park on Friday to receive their press passes for the two-day event. If you plan to send different crews Friday and Saturday, please acknowledge it when you submit your media coverage agreements. We need names and signed agreements for each journalist assigned to cover the event.
