Letter Confirming Assignment
When you are seeking access to certain restricted events, presenting a press pass may not be enough. For those occasions, IAPP will issue a letter confirming assignment upon request. This credential, issued for a specific event, proves you are seeking admission in your capacity as a news reporter. The International Association of Press Photographers provides this confirmation of your journalist status as an added service to its members.
Being able to show a letter confirming assignment can be important when reporting on press conferences, presentations, sports events, premieres, factory tours, business events or crime scenes.
