The News Media Association issued over 1,400 cards to newsgatherers working in the news media industry last year.
The number issued in 2022 saw a nine per cent increase on the previous year.
Press cards are formally recognised by all police forces in the UK, by the Ministry of Justice, the Royal Households and by other public bodies.
The cost of a press card is £25 for those working for NMA members and £45 for those working for national and regional news media who are non-members.
The NMA issues press cards as part of its media facilities service for member publishers which also includes the Royal Rota scheme enabling national and regional titles to access pooled pictures from high profile royal and political events across the UK.
To apply for a press card, please contact Laura Skerrett for an application form.
