Allocation of seats for photo and media positions at the celebration of The King’s 70th birthday

There will be a number of photo and media positions in connection to the celebrations of The King’s 70th birthday. The celebrations start on Monday April 25, and end on April 30.

Accreditation is needed for all positions except for the Choral tribute. Media that have not been given a position in the photo pool on Lejonbacken may photograph from public areas in front of the Lejonbacken terrace.

The following media outlets have been allocated a seat/seats in the photo and media positions. The number in brackets ( ) states how many seats each media outlet has been allocated.

Media will be let into the media areas in smaller groups. Swedish media will have access to the media areas first and then international media.

Valid press card and photo ID required in order to gain access to the media areas.

There will also be good opportunities for media representatives to stand in public areas such as along the route of the cortège on Friday April 29 and Saturday April 30, and the Choral tribute.

Please consider that the time required on April 30 for relocation between the midday event at the Royal Palace (the Choral tribute on Lejonbacken) and the following lunch at City Hall entails separate photo/media teams. It takes about 30 minutes to walk between.
