The FPA works closely with the Royal Palaces and the DCMS (Department of Culture, Media and Sport) as one of the official accrediting bodies for International media at Royal Weddings, Births and Christenings.
As a member of the UK Press Card Authority, it provides official journalistic accreditation to more than 2,200 international correspondents every year. All media are represented: from print and news agencies to broadcast and digital. Freelancers are welcome in all categories. To see who our members are, click here
The FPA is the only association that can provide foreign journalists with access to Parliament.
If you are a member and you are interested in attending Meaningful Votes, debates or PMQs, please click here.
Throughout the year, the FPA holds a wide-ranging programme of briefings, facilitating access to Government Ministers, Whitehall, the City's financial district and Royal events. We also organise book presentations, Brexit briefings, conferences with key figures etc.
We are open to working with other organisations, embassies, PR agencies, government departments, etc. to organise briefings and events on various topics.
Our bulletin goes out first thing every Friday morning with a list of upcoming events. The list is edited by our Director, who has final say on what makes the cut. If you have an event that you'd like to be featured in the bulletin, please send it by Thursday 12noon to email@example.com.
You can send all materials in English.
Please note that we DO NOT give out details of our members and we don't send out press releases.
