Thank you for your interest in attending the 2019 STIHL National Championship Air Races as working media! You are an essential part of helping spread the word about the event, its people and their stories. Our goal is to make sure this year runs smoothly and is beneficial to all parties involved. The deadline for media credential applications is Friday, August 16. Media credential forms can be found below. If you have questions please reach out to AirRaceMedia@foundryideas.com.
Tightening Things Up
We receive hundreds of photographer media credential applications and as much as we love your enthusiasm we are unable to properly manage those numbers in a safe manner and allow everyone to get the shots they want. Because of that we will have max limits on the number of applications accepted with priority given to those on assignment.
- Tier One Photographers on assignment and key photographers that submitted their 2018 photos by the deadline that can show that they have produced for the event. Select new photographers will also be included.
*Controlled pylon access
- Tier Two Photographers who did not submit their 2018 photos at all or by the deadline as well as photographers who cannot show that their photos have contributed to promoting air racing (shares on social media do not count).
*No pylon access
New Pylons and Chasing the Best Light – We hear you! You are the masters of your craft and we understand that interesting angles and catching the right light play an essential role in you creating the best product. We are working with all teams involved to see what we can do about access to different pylons and will keep you updated here to see what new options may be in store for 2019. (No promises but we are looking in to it.)
