Journalists who cover the festival as reporting press for established media will be granted an accreditation free of charge for DOK Leipzig 2017. The festival reserves the right to request proof of journalistic work and reject the complimentary accreditation under certain circumstances. The accreditation process is open until 20 October.


Please find more information on the accreditation here.

To apply for an accreditation you first need to register with our online platform MYDOK. Once registered, you can fill out the accreditation registration form online. Your application will then be processed.


Once you are accredited, you will have access to the INDUSTRY GUIDE, our festival guest list that contains contact details of those guests who have approved the publication of their data. The list allows you to directly get in touch with potential interview partners.


Please note that your accreditation does not grant you automatic access to the opening ceremony of DOK Leipzig 2017. If you wish to attend the festival opening on 30 October, please let us know by email at after you have applied for accreditation. We will look into allocation of tickets and will get back to you as soon as possible.
