Whether to award QSAs to correspondents was discussed in 1901 with the decision was made to issue medals under certain circumstances in December 1901.  The discussions are contained in WO 32/8559.  To receive a war medal, the correspondent must:

  1. Be accredited by the editor of the newspaper he represents
  2. Have reported by telegraph and not by letter
  3. Held a pass from the Chief Censor
  4. Have served with troops in the field

Not all correspondents were issued with medals under these rules.
