The request is premature. A veteran Wikinewsie has volunteered to help the user to build a local reputation, which highlights that the user doesn't have one now. The user can re-apply after earning one. --Pi zero (talk) 01:44, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

My idea to contribute to Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikinews is not by writing articles - I take photos and contribute them to Wikipedia,Wikimedia Commons and Wikinews. I contacted both Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, it turned out that only Wikinews provides official accreditation press card. Neither Wikipedia nor Wikimedia Commons provides official press card. Federations like FINA, FIBA, FIVB or FIG requires that kind of a card to allow you to be there and shoot major world sport stars.
At major championships there are guys, who write and guys who shoot - i am from the "shooters". In every media no one asks a photo-journalist to write an article - they only want cool pictures from him/her.
You have no earned reputation on Wikinews. We extend accreditation to someone we trust and who we expect to use the accreditation to contribute to Wikinews. Note, trust in this case goes to more than just taking good pictures; there's a matter of professional journalistic behavior. A request for accreditation seems quite premature. Are you interested in contributing to Wikinews, either synthesis articles or even photo essays? You may find Wikinews:Pillars of writing helpful as perspective on what we do here. --Pi zero (talk) 20:53, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
Tell you what: contact me on my talk page and let's see if we can collaborate on a few things....ok? Reputation is important here and that can only be built via time and effort. --Bddpaux (talk) 01:22, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
....and, the Beauty In Sport site appears to be glitching....so, please post some better links to what you've submitted over at Commons and I will take a look. There is a chance we can work with someone who ONLY takes photos, but you have to be able to bend and flex a little bit too. Again: reputation matters here. --Bddpaux (talk) 01:26, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Oppose I'm sympathetic to the lack of assistance from Commons and the 'pedia, but Wikinews is neither of those places. You've never even tried to collaborate on a photoessay, with your photos paired against somebody else's brief writeup, and your response to being asked to do so is very hostile. That doesn't fill me with faith you'd collaborate after accreditation, either. You're asking us to put our project's name against you, but not actually do any work here in return.
