Press releases and other press information
The IFSC provides information about the World Cup on worldwide. While the IFSC writes and distributes Press Releases related to all World Cups, it requires accurate and prompt information from the Event Organiser to do so.
Specifically, the IFSC will issue a Press Release both before and after the World Cup. 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 World Cup, 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 World Cup.
An IFSC official Photographer will be in attendance at each World Cup.
The pictures will be displayed on IFSC communication platforms (website, social media) with a free access to journalists for editorial use related to the World Cup only. The pictures will be available on the IFSC Flicker page following the competition.
If the Event Organiser wishes to use these pictures for any other purpose, it will seek the permission of the IFSC in advance
The IFSC official Photographer benefits from additional rights allowing her/him to take pictures at the bottom of the wall (receiving stage) and to operate from the top of the wall if she/he fully secured.
IFSC Video Production (Webcasting) Crew
