a) Where an application is accepted by BPE, the applicant will obtain Media Accreditation from BPE for a 12 month period from acceptance by BPE.

4.3 Media Accreditation
An individual holding Media Accreditation is not entitled to any certain access or rights at an Event solely on the basis of Accreditation. Rights and access at an Event remain at the discretion of the Event organiser. Media must still notify BPE which events they wish to attend via email in advance of each event. Major events may also have separate event media accreditation. BPE has the authority to limit the number of media present at any event and may assign exclusivity rights to any one media person at any point in time.
4.4 Removal of Accreditation
BPE may, in its sole discretion, remove or vary an individual's Media Accreditation at any time for a breach of this Policy or any other policy, regulation or rule issued or published by BPE, EA, EV or FEI (including Social Media Policies.)
4.5 Display of Media Accreditation
When media accreditation has been approved, individuals will be provided with a Boneo Park media accreditation lanyard. This must be worn at all times whilst at Boneo Park along with the Equestrian Victoria media vest.
4.6 Licence to BPE
Individuals with Media Accreditation give BPE a licence to use, reproduce and modify any recordings they have made at an Event (including any publications or reproductions of those recordings) (Event Media) for the purposes of BPE operations. BPE will not seek to commercialise any Event Media for profit unless otherwise agreed.
In relation to any Event Media, individuals with Media Accreditation will within a reasonable period of time of receiving a request by BPE:
a) deliver that Event Media to BPE within a reasonable period of time; and
b) cover the reasonable costs of complying with BPE's request.
4.7 Release and Indemnity
In both applying for and in using any Media Accreditation, all individuals agree:
a) that equestrian sport is an inherently dangerous activity; and
b) to assume all risk of loss or damage in attending an Event.
Media Rights Media
Accreditation does not guarantee entry to an Event. Individuals with Media Accreditation may be granted access and other rights and privileges to make a recording at an Event which are not normally available to spectators at that Event. The organiser of an Event has the sole right to determine what access and other rights and privileges may be granted to individuals with Media Accreditation. BPE has the right to give exclusive rights to one individual or organisation at any Event.
Individuals at an Event must:
c) comply with BPE and EV Media Guidelines;
d) notify BPE in advance of each event, via email, if they wish to attend
e) take all necessary steps to ensure their own safety and the safety of those around them; and
f) comply with all:
(i) policies, procedures, rules and regulations of BPE and the Event;
(ii) directions issued by officials; and
a) It is the responsibility of individuals at an Event to ensure at all times that they have necessary consent as required at law from all individuals (and potentially guardians where an individual is under the age of 18) in a recording before using that recording.
b) Individuals at an Event should pay particular regard to recordings which may be used for commercial purposes, where the subject is under the age of 18 or where the subject may consider that a recording is potentially or actually:
(i) unwarranted or intrusive;
(ii) indecent; or
