Press Accreditation for Crufts 2024

Press accreditation for Crufts 2024

Advance press accreditation for Crufts 2024 is now closed.

If you have not already registered for press accreditation for the event, then you must do so at the show itself. Please be prepared accrediting on the day will take time so please allow time in your schedule if you are hoping to watch a certain competition. While waiting please remain patient and respectful to all staff and other members of the press. 
Please come to the Press Office, which will be located in the Toute Suite (inside the main entrance to the NEC). You will not need an entry ticket for the show to gain access to the Press Office as it is not within the show itself.
To be accepted for press accreditation at the show, you will need to produce one of the following at the event:
• A currently valid press card – personal business cards will not be accepted
• A letter on headed paper from the head of the media organisation you are representing
• Examples of your previous published work with your name on
• A digital copy of a headshot to be emailed to us or be happy to be photographed at the event

Please note that registration will be refused without the appropriate documents being produced.
Press registration at the show opens on Thursday 7th March at 7:45 AM and closes on Sunday 10th March in the early evening.
