With 2,500 members of the media from the United States and around the world expected to cover the 2018 SHOT Show, there is a limit for the number of journalists that can be reasonably and fairly accommodated. Both specialized media routinely covering the shooting, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement trade may be assigned credentials until the limit is reached. A deadline for applying and assigning media credentials may be put into effect at any time at the discretion of the NSSF Communications team.
Media credentials for the 2018 SHOT Show will be provided solely at the discretion of the NSSF Communications team and will be based on the following criteria:
- Previous media credentialing at one or more recent SHOT Shows, or invitation to receive 2018 credentials (both subject to re-qualification review).
- Demonstrated record of print, broadcast, cable or web-based coverage of shooting, hunting, law enforcement and related activities.
- Because the SHOT Show is run for the benefit of the shooting, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement industry, a demonstrated record of reasonable objectivity, fairness and balance in past coverage of the industry will be considered.
