Video Highlights and WCH Informational Server
All press materials, incl.: highlights of the day, press releases, press information, briefings, photosets of the day, and other important and reference materials are hosted on a special WCH’s Cloud Server provided by the IFSC. The Event Organizer gets access to the Server, regularly posts all materials and provides all media with access to the information by usernames and passwords.
The IFSC Press Office approve the English versions of the materials in any time they are provided by the local press office.
Annunciation campaign and Press events
The plan of announcing campaign of the WCH and the plan of press events before and during the WCH are drawn up and approved separately by all parties no later than 1 month before the Kick-Off of the WCH.
The Event Organizer holds a press briefing for the media and sends out special rules of conduct and conditions and procedures for organizing zones at the competitions venue.
At the end of each competition, the Organizer holds a press approach and a press conference with the winners.
The IFSC will issue a Press Release both before and after the Event. The IFSC will send these Press Releases to its international media database and to all National Federations. The National Federations will then be able to translate them and send them to their national medias.
Following the event, IFSC will send the Event Organiser an international press review compiled via an online platform. In order to have a complete international press review, the Event Organiser will send to the IFSC all information about national coverage and national press clippings (with digital copies) related to the event. Prior to the Event, the Event Organiser will provide the IFSC with a list of keywords in the native language of the host country, to be used by the IFSC when gathering press clippings (International Federation of Sport Climbing, Climbing, Sport Climbing, World Cup, World Championships, Youth World Championships, Paraclimbing, host country/city name).
An IFSC official Photographer will be in attendance at each international IFSC event. For larger events, the IFSC reserves the right to send more than one Photographer, in addition to an assistant to aid the official Photographer(s).
Photographs supplied by the official Photographer shall be displayed on IFSC digital communications platforms (e.g. website, social media), with free access to journalists for online editorial use relating to the event only. Following the event, the photographs will be available through the IFSC Flickr page.
Should the Event Organiser wish to use said photographs for any other purpose, they must seek permission from the IFSC in advance.
The IFSC official Photographer benefits from additional access rights, allowing him/her to take photographs at the bottom of the wall (receiving stage), as well as operating from the top of the wall if fully secured.
The Event Organiser Photographer access should be equivalent to that of the IFSC official Photographer.
The event organiser must guarantee a safe and comfortable working environment for the IFSC Official Photographer, including fair treatment equal to that of the Event Organiser Photographer, high speed internet connection and an editing room available for up-to six hours after the competition has ended.
IFSC digital media
The IFSC will communicate before, during, and after the event on its website and its social media. In order to do this effectively, the IFSC requires the Event Organiser to provide information before the beginning of the event. At a minimum, this should include:
Also appreciated would be:
The IFSC provides a Report after each event. This Report aims at providing detailed information on the international promotion of the Event including broadcasting, webcasting, social media statistics, media, branding, etc. It also helps to provide relevant information to current and potential sponsors.
