Royal Rota

The NMA allocates rota passes to cover the several hundred royal engagements undertaken by members of the royal family each year to local, regional and national newspapers in its membership. Under the rota system, they will share all material obtained, with other members of their sector who request it.

Press Cards

The NMA is one of the UK press card authority gatekeepers and issues press cards to journalists, photographers and freelance newsgatherers working for the national or regional press. Press cards are nationally recognised and accepted by the police, and identify the bearer as a working journalist.
