The deadline to apply for media credentials is Friday, August 13, 2021. Special exceptions will be made for those receiving assignments after the deadline on a case-by-case basis – please email [email protected]

Who should apply (and who does not need to)

If you are a member of the media representing an outlet with the intent to cover the air races, thank you for your interest in covering our event. As there are hundreds of applications each year, there will be limited space for those working on personal blogs, photo portfolio websites and personal sales.

Due to security reasons, individuals interested in media credentials who are already credentialed as a member of a race crew will not be given media credentials. Exceptions may exist, please contact [email protected].

If you are volunteering for the STIHL National Championship Air Races you do not need to apply for media credentials in order to submit your photos. Please reach out to [email protected] and we will get you on the volunteer submission list.

If you are a vendor looking for media credentials to cover your organization’s attendance at the STIHL National Championship Air Races, please email [email protected] before completing this form.
