Press attendance at TEDxCanberra events

TEDxCanberra invites a small number of requesting journalists to cover each conference. We give priority to proposals from journalists who:

  • work for mainstream and online media outlets capable of reaching large or influential audiences
  • have a track record of insightful coverage in areas related to TED and TEDxCanberra
  • have a specific commission for coverage of the conference (and not just of speakers or others attending)

Some things to note:

  • We take great care in filming TEDxCanberra Talks. It is very rare that we invite outside cameras in for video and TV efforts, but we are happy to evaluate all requests for conference footage.
  • We do not admit outside photographers
  • We are unable to consider press passes for freelancers without an assignment letter from the outlet for which you wish to report

Interested in covering a TEDxCanberra event? Press passes are limited, and press attendance will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Send your name, the name of your media outlet, and your proposed area of coverage to TEDxCanberra Media at Press decisions are generally made in the months preceding the conferences, and accepted attending press are notified approximately one month before each event.

TED Conference

Any inquiry regarding TED should be sent to:

TEDx Media Liaison

While we appreciate any coverage, we kindly ask that all journalists and/or bloggers be respectful of the difference between the TED and TEDx brands.

The ‘x’ in ‘TEDx’ stands for “independently organised events.” Any headline or text which implies “TED” is coming to Canberra is misleading.
