PRESS PASS REQUESTS
HOW TO APPLY FOR PRESS PASSES FOR THE CAROLINA COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS
These passes are being made available upon request for the following media outlets:
(A) PRINT MEDIA: Print Media includes local newspapers, national newspapers, college newspapers, magazines etc. Hyperlocal publications and alternative newspapers will be considered based on the same criteria as the Internet press.
(B) TELEVISION & RADIO: TV & Radio include AM, FM, Satellite, Local TV and National TV
(C) DIGITAL MEDIA: In order to even be considered for internet press credentials you must fit the following criteria. You will not get a reply if you fail to reference these points in your email request.
You must have a website that posts content weekly.
You must have at least 2 verifiable social media pages for that website, such as Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, Twitter, etc.
One of your social platforms must have more than 10,000 followers.
Internet press is limited to 1 pass unless you agree to post about Carolina Country Music Awards before the event with a link to our website. If you agree to run pre-press, you can have up to 2 passes.
(D) NATIONAL MEDIA: Nationally syndicated radio, tv, or print publications that are not local to Myrtle Beach, SC must meet the Digital Media criteria in order to obtain press passes.
NOTE: If you are not approved for “free” press credentials, you may still purchase a ticket to the show and report on the show that way. As well, having a press badge does not guarantee any interviews. If you are looking to interview any guests at the show for your website, please contact SweetTea@colonial.fm in advance. Please note it will be VERY hard to set up interviews on the fly at the show.
The number of passes are decided on a case to case basis at the discretion of Andrulonis Media.
If you are granted a press pass, we ask (if possible) that you do a piece/share information regarding Carolina Country Music Awards before the event itself.
Press Credentials are granted with the understanding that Carolina Country Music Awards is a fan show that appreciates its attendees and guests. We ask that press don’t mock attendees or guests or use the show as a source for derisive humor.
Many of our celebrities have agreements to do advanced interviews with press, but very few have agreed to conduct interviews on site.
We will work with you to help secure possible advance information and potential interview opportunities with Carolina Country Music Awards staff and/or guests. You will also be added to the mailing list for any related press releases.
HOW TO APPLY FOR PRESS PASSES:
