Media Matters

In general all EJU events are open for media. Unfortunately due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we have restrictions for the upcoming events.


European Judo Championships
Lisbon 🇵🇹 | 16 – 18 April

Media Registration

The number of journalists depends on the pandemic situation in Lisbon and will be decided by the Portugal Health Authorities.

The situation is changing from week to week so we have decided to move the start date for the registration process to the 22nd of March.

Of course we will have the same rules like we had in Prague. All journalists need two negativ PCR tests before arrival in Lisbon and they have to stay in the official hotel (safety bubble).

In the next weeks we will provide you more details.

All media who are interested for TV or Radio rights please contact our EJU Rights Department.

This license (BY-NC-SA) does not have specific support for media, but we are very willing to freely license our content to media.
Reporters are free to use up to three attributed photos per story (with credit* and a link back to EJU) without contacting us and without specific permission. More generous licensing is readily available by contacting us, and we are almost always willing to grant media the same rights as non-commercial users. The images can be used:

More generous press licensing is easily obtainable by emailing.

*Credit — You must give appropriate credit (mention the name of the Licensor and the name of the photographer), provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

Judo Federations and Everyone

Everyone is free to republish, share, and remix our manuals as long as they attribute the source link, use it for a noncommercial purpose, and distribute any modifications of the work under a similar license. Note that no double accreditation is allowed (e.g. as press and federation).


If you want to use our content in any commercial way (outwith journalistic activities) please contact us with any inquiries by email.

Video permit (only for European judo Open and Cups)

It is allowed to film in the venue during the day but Non-Right holders can only publish videos with a maximum length of 5 minutes per competition day. For special projects which are not producing daily news, we can find an exceptional solution.
