MEDIA CREDENTIALS & INFO
2023 STATE FAIR MEDIA CREDENTIAL POLICY
Credentials are distributed on an as-available basis to journalists of recognized news outlets who are on assignment to cover the Colorado State Fair. All media must request to visit the fair by submitting a 2023 Credential Request (under Forms below). Journalists must represent recognized daily or weekly newspapers; news services; recognized national/regional radio and television networks; local radio and television stations; and/or recognized Internet sites. In each case, this determination is at the sole discretion of the Colorado State Fair.
For public safety reasons, media credentials are only issued to working media as defined by this policy, and at the sole discretion of the Colorado State Fair. Media credentials will not be granted to applicants that do not meet the established criteria.
A history of being granted media credentials to the Colorado State Fair DOES NOT GUARANTEE approval of a media credential for this year’s State Fair and does not waive the credential application and approval requirements. The Colorado State Fair reserves the right to deny or revoke media credentials for any reason.
The provided 2023 media credential must be worn at all times. Receipt of the 2023 Colorado State Fair Media Credential confirms an understanding and agreement from freelance photographers that the images recorded will only be used for specific stories related to the Colorado State Fair. Photographs cannot be sold over the Internet or used in any other way.
Accredited media are expected to cooperate with the public health and safety procedures and requirements implemented by the State of Colorado, Pueblo County Health and the Colorado State Fair. Media access may vary by event, and the media rules of each respective event must be followed.
The 2023 Colorado State Fair Media Center will be located south of the Colorado Lottery Building. Vehicles, please enter through Gate 1. Pedestrians may enter through Gate 2.
