Olympic openings for NUJ members
FOLLOWING representations from the NUJ over the restricted accreditation opportunities for the
Games in London next summer, the British Olympic Association
is inviting freelance members of the union to express interest in attending Team GB House - the base for the British teams.
This "will be located in a prime position at the gateway to the Olympic Park... in Westfield." It will host press conferences with Team GB athletes, support staff, Chef de Mission and Deputy Chefs de Mission both pre Games and during Games time and will predominantly be for non Olympic accredited sports media.
There will be no media work room/space and due to space restrictions, it is highly likely that only one representative from any one organisation will be granted access at any one time.
To get the "Expression of Interest" form, members should email the Freelance Office. The deadline for the BOA to receive it is 30 November. Application does not guarantee acceptance.
