Who is eligible?


During the sign-up process, you are asked to provide information about how you meet the eligibility criteria.

Accreditation is open to independent European producers or distributors, i.e. those established in Europe and offering European content (see below for the definition of European content).

During the sign-up process you are asked for an affirmation that you meet this and the other criteria.

Once you have signed up, we submit your application to Creative Europe MEDIA to check that you meet the criteria and that there is still space left. We aim to let you know within a week at most whether you have been accepted.

When allocating dedicated booths (‘mini-stands’), priority is given to European companies with experience of audiovisual and film markets, whose catalogue is significant in size, diversified in content and geographic origin, and contains programmes which have been made recently.

Been to MIPCOM before?

If you have been to MIPCOM before, you are welcome to come (back) to the stand at the special accreditation rate.



To be considered to have European content, any work of fiction [including an animated film] or documentary, be it a completed production, a project or a format, must comply with the following conditions:

  • the majority of the work has been or is to be produced by companies established in one or more countries participating in Creative Europe MEDIA, and
  • there is a significant involvement of professionals who are citizens or residents of the countries participating in Creative Europe MEDIA.

The following programming is not eligible:

    • live recordings, TV games, talk shows, reality shows or educational, teaching and ‘how-to’ programmes;
    • documentaries promoting tourism, "making-of" reports, animal reportages, news programmes and "docu-soaps";
    • projects promoting, directly or indirectly, messages that are at odds with the policies of the European Union - for example, projects that may be contrary to the interests of public health (alcohol, tobacco, drugs), respect for human rights, people's security, freedom of expression etc.;
    • projects promoting violence and/or racism and/or with a pornographic content;
    • works of a promotional nature;
    • institutional productions to promote a specific organisation or its activities.
