Terms and conditions
We ask that all arts industry professionals read and agree to the following terms and conditions before proceeding with their application to accredit with the Arts Industry Office for the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
To be accredited with the Arts Industry Office you will need to demonstrate and provide evidence that you are able to provide a professional development opportunity to Fringe artists, companies, etc beyond the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Accreditation with the Arts Industry Office lasts until the end of the calendar year so those wishing to use the service must apply for accreditation before each Edinburgh Festival Fringe they wish to attend.
All applications to accredit with the Arts Industry Office must be submitted through the online application form. You can also contact us at [email protected] or +44(0) 131 240 1902 for assistance or to discuss submitting an application in a different format.
To ensure an efficient service, we suggest that a maximum of two representatives per organisation apply for accreditation. We require each individual to complete their own online form which then means you will each have your own unique login to access all our services and information pages.
Accreditation is granted on an individual basis and arts industry passes must not be shared amongst multiple members of the same organisation.
Accreditation does not guarantee access to complimentary tickets. The use of the complimentary ticketing request service is reserved for industry professionals who are in a position to directly buy work and is set up to help enable you to see more work rather than subsidise the total cost of tickets. You can request access to complimentary ticketing if you are a booker, venue or festival programmer but please note that only two people from one organisation can request complimentary ticketing. For more information please read the complimentary ticketing policy.
The Arts Industry Office reserves the right to contact the applicant to ask for more information before processing the application.
The Arts Industry Office reserves the right to cancel access to accreditation/complimentary ticketing in any instance where the above terms and conditions are not adhered to.
If you have any questions, please contact us on [email protected] or +44 (0)131 240 1902.
