An instantly and internationally recognisable professional identification. The International Press Card (IPC) is recognised the world over and is the only press pass endorsed by national journalists' groups in more than 130 countries.

The world's oldest and most reputable identification for working journalists across the globe. The IPC was launched at the IFJ World Congress in Dijon in 1927. It provides instant confirmation that the bearer is a working journalist. It is only issued to genuine journalists who are committed to ethical standards and solidarity between media professionals.

 

An acknowledgment of your commitment to ethical standards and IFJ's Code of Ethics. The IPC lists the IFJ Declaration of Principles on the Conduct of Journalists adopted in 1954 and amended in 1986 which ethical principles are widely recognised.

 

A symbol of solidarity between media professionals. IPC card holders belong to the IFJ family. The IPC connects journalists globally and ensures that IFJ affiliated organisations extend to the IPC bearer assistance and courtesy in the performance of her/his mission.

 

A guarantee for IFJ assistance across the globe. Journalists travelling in conflict zones have testified to the benefits of the IPC . It has helped many journalists get out of tricky situations in dealing with soldiers, police or officials.

 

A door opener. The IPC facilitates access to officials meetings. Holders can take advantage of the IFJ's official recognition within the European Union and within the agencies of the United Nations. Not least, the IPC in many countries will help journalists gain privileged access to media events - this is never guaranteed, but the card gives journalists a better chance of success than any other international accreditation.

 

Besides the official IPC’s advantages listed on our web site, we are interested in identifying the benefits IPC holders will receive in certain countries.

 

For this purpose, we are canvassing all our affiliates’ organisations for a list of benefits and advantages the IPC affords in their countries. If this is not available, testimonies from your members on the benefits of the IPC would be greatly appreciated.

 

An admission into the fellowship of the IFJ global journalists' community. The IFJ provides support and services to press card holders, including access to the IFEX network which is a coalition of press freedom and journalists' groups that monitors the state of press freedom the world over. Regular bulletins from the IFJ and updates on actions in defence of journalists are available to all card holders.

Background:  

The IFJ International Press Card is internationally recognised and endorsed by journalist groups in over 130 countries. Launched in 1926, the IPC is the oldest and most reputable identification for journalists.

This card carries with it an acknowledgement of the holder’s commitment to the IFJ’s code of ethics, IFJ support and services such as access to the IFEX network,  a coalition of press freedom groups and the advantage of the IFJ’s official recognition from the European Union and United Nations.

The IPC can only be ordered by our affiliates on behalf of their members. All orders must be sent to bernard@ifj.org

Please share with us the IPC advantages in your country (free pass to certain events, free entry to museums, transports discounts…) as well as your members testimonies (and a good photo) to Charlie Phillips (internIFJ@ifj.org)

 Мнения

Уверен съм, драги колеги и приятели, че всички Вие цените този празник на духовността! Интересното е, че той се чества у нас за първи път по предложение на Стоян Омарчевски, министър на просвещението в правителството на БЗНС, начело с Александър Стамболийски.

Едно „общо събрание" на СБЖ, еволюирало в цинична демонстрация на къса памет, неблагодарност за години водена битка с ненаситни и алчни „емблеми" на българската компрометирана журналистика! Ако можеше да бъде обезглавено на часа, ръководството на СБЖ вече би било в миналото!
