I am trying to upload a media with a POST request and it keeps giving an error. This is what I have so far

 payload = {
        "templateData": [
                "text": caption_new ,
                "excerpt": excerpt,
                '429279057136': open(f'{media.png}', 'rb')    
    headers = {
        "accept": "application/json",
        "content-type": "application/json",
        "Authorization": "Bearer gptoJiWSw3PbxtQr41oF1ghqv5jyTpcQ"
    response =, json=payload, headers=headers)
