GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE EUPA PRESS KIT
Our Press Kit is an important tool for full-time and part-time professional quality content producers. It allows them to identify themselves to agencies, authorities, event organizers and businesses. The Press Kit documents identify their owner as a professional journalist, which is tremendously helpful when conducting in-depth research. A Press Kit facilitates access to events, blocked-off areas and a variety of information. Journalists who would like to be added to a media mailing list or participate in a press conference are often asked for proof of their journalistic occupation, which our Press Kit certifies. Agencies, organizers and businesses may easily verify whether or not someone is really a journalist.
A KIT DISTINGUISHING PROFESSIONAL CONTENT MAKERS
In order to receive your complete EUPA VIP Press Kit, you have to provide proof of your occupation as a journalist. Press passes and press ID cards are issued exclusively by umbrella organizations and press agencies, in most cases, approved only for full-time employed journalists. At the EUPA, we assume that anyone who represents the press (whether full or part time) has the right to a VIP Press Kit.
FRAUD PREVENTION: GENUINENESS AND SAFETY FEATURES
In order to prevent fraud, the European Press Agency (EUPA) documents contain numerous customized safety features. The genuineness of any EUPA document may be verified by comparing it to the identifying features on the EUPA website. In case of doubt, you may contact the national headquarters of the EUPA directly. Upon request, agencies and businesses may review additional authenticating features.
WHY ARE SUCH DRAMATIC SAFETY MEASURES NECESSARY?
Criminals continuously try to disseminate documents that are fake or have been altered. Hence, it is important that our genuine documents can be authenticated beyond a doubt.
EUPA Press Kit can not be purchased and is strictly reserved to our accredited members.
You must be at least 18 years old in order to become a member of EUPA and obtain a VIP Press Kit.
