Media Information 2017-18

31 July 2017

Media Requests
 
All interview requests or general media enquiries relating to Club affairs are to be directed to the Press Officer Elliot Byrne, preferably via email to e.byrne@leytonorient.net.

We will endeavour to deal with every request from accredited media sources as soon as possible.
 
Press Conferences
 
The vast majority of our interview requests for players and staff will be facilitated at our regular press day on a Thursday (subject to change) at the Club’s training ground.
 
Should you wish to attend then you must send an email outlining your request through beforehand and you will subsequently receive notification granting you or denying you access to the press day.
 
Media that have not sent through a request more than 24 hours before the press day may not be given access for that week. 
 
The Club will occasionally call press conferences in the event of a major announcement or ahead of a remarkable fixture. These may take place at The Breyer Group stadium and media outlets will be notified if this is the case. 
 
Match Accreditation
 
In order for media organisations to attend first team fixtures at The Breyer Group Stadium to provide broadcast or written coverage, please contact Elliot Byrne at e.byrne@leytonorient.net.
 
Please note that the closing date for accreditation applications is 5pm on Thursdays for all weekend fixtures, or 5pm on the preceding day for a midweek fixture. Though we can normally accommodate late requests (subject to availability), the deadlines have been set to ensure the smoothest possible service on the day of the game.
 
Please avoid ringing to confirm the status of your application prior to this point. Matchday parking is not provided to the media due to a lack of parking space at the stadium. 
 
Match Photography
 
The vast majority of images used in our matchday magazine and via the pages of our Club website are provided by our Club Photographer Simon O’Connor. For any queries relating to imagery, please contact e.byrne@leytonorient.net.
 
Other images featured on our site are courtesy of Rex Features and others are accredited where necessary.

Any photographers looking to attend first team fixtures at The Breyer Group Stadium must also provide their National League license number with their request.
 
Work Experience/Student Requests
 
Due to the vast number of requests we receive relating to student projects or possible work experience placements, it is unfortunately impossible for us to grant every request we receive. 
 
Opportunities for individuals wishing to gain work experience within the media department are occasionally available. Anyone wishing to be considered for such a placement are asked to email e.byrne@leytonorient.net stating:
 
- the reason for their application
- the whole weeks in which they are available
...and including:
- an up to date CV
- examples of relevant work in this area.

Please note that the Club does not take on any media placements during the season.
 
Contacts
 
If the above information still doesn't answer your query, please feel free to email Press Officer Elliot Byrne at e.byrne@leytonorient.net with any other queries you may have.
