The 2023 Media Credential Application is now open! 

The Amelia is committed to working with the emerging social media sector and independent reporters, columnists, journalists, bloggers and photographers who are capable of reaching wide audiences. The following list includes guidelines which The Amelia will use in order to determine eligibility to grant media credentials.  

Online applications are due by 11:59 pm on February 19, 2023. You will be notified no later than February 26, 2023, confirming or denying your request. Media Credentials must be applied for and will be issued in the applicant’s name and a Photo ID will be required upon arrival. Please reach out to Chris Brewer if you require an early decision for planning purposes.  

Please note, 2023 media credentials will include a joint pass for the official auction of The Amelia, hosted by Broad Arrow Auctions. Preview and auction details as well as lots on offer are available here

The Amelia strives to work with the best and values individuals who have worked with us in the past. The Amelia requires that outlets/individuals have a proven history, demonstrate professional standards and regularly produce original and quality content that can reach the target audience.  

The approval of media credentials depends on the several factors:  

  • Previous relevant experience  

  • Examples of published work  

  • While our decision is never based on “the numbers,” we welcome applicants to submit monthly visitor traffic data or number of social media followers  

  • Media Credentials are for those who plan to cover the entire event as opposed to a single car. Exceptions will be made in special circumstances at the discretion of The Amelia  

  • All credential applications should be accompanied by a letter of assignment. The letter must be on company letterhead or sent from a verified company email address. Correspondence should state the name(s) of those covering The Amelia and their specific duties and/or titles (writers/photographers/videographers, etc)

  • If you are a free-lance writer or photographer you must also send a Certificate of Insurance (contact cbrewer@hagerty.com with questions/further clarification)  

  • A Media Credential Request Form must be submitted for each representative from your media organization and not organizations as a whole  

  • If you have questions on any of the above, do not hesitate to contact Chris Brewer (contact information below). Please know that each application is thoughtfully considered and, if necessary, we will reach out for further discussion and clarification before a final decision is made.  

Media Room Access  

  • The Media Room is exclusively for those with media credentials as well as invited Hagerty guests and staff  

  • The Amelia has the right to reserve seating for deadline media and any other approved requests  

  • The Media Room is equipped with internet access and charging stations for your phones, laptops and other equipment  

If your credential request is approved, a photo ID will be required for credential pick up.  

Drones and UAS are prohibited.  

THE CREDENTIAL IS NOT TRANSFERABLE AND MAY BE REVOKED AT ANY TIME
