The St. Paul Rodeo is grateful for the outstanding coverage provided by our media partners. In order to allow for a positive experience for the press, fans and contestants we have requirements for those who wish to cover the St. Paul Rodeo. We appreciate your cooperation.
We must limit the number of accredited press and media people at each event in deference to fan and vendor enjoyment and profitability. Media passes for any show must be approved in advance.
REQUIREMENTS FOR PRESS CREDENTIALS
- The St. Paul will only consider media credential applications from paid employees of media outlets or freelance writers or photographers with a valid letter of assignment from a media outlet.
- Only photographers who are members of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and are approved by the St. Paul Rodeo will be allowed in the arena.
- Press must respect the guests at the show and be “invisible” when taking photos or videos.
- If your Rodeo coverage is web based it must be easily available to everyone visiting your site.
- The St. Paul Rodeo is sanctioned by the PRCA which “retains all rights in and to the filming, taping, and recording in any media” therefore none of the listed items may be sold without prior permission of the PRCA.
