Media credentials are required for coverage of all memorial events on-site at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (1 Billy Graham Parkway, Charlotte, NC 28201). Every member of the media must apply for media credentials by filling out this form.

Credentials are for working media only. Individuals must be on an official assignment by an accredited media outlet in order to obtain a credential. (Freelancers must provide proof of assignment from an editor.)

Submission of an application does not guarantee the approval of a media credential. After review, media will be notified via email whether the application has been approved or denied. 

The media entrance is the Billy Graham Library entrance (located off Westmont Drive). Upon arrival, media must present a photo ID and one of the following: a working press identification, an official media outlet business card or a letter on outlet letterhead. Media credentials must be worn at all times while on the headquarters property. 

Limited space will be available for media to attend the funeral and separate credentials are required. To apply for funeral credentials, see Obtaining Media Credentials for Private Funeral Service.

Historical b-roll, including video and key sound bites from Billy Graham's life and ministry, is available for download.
