To meet your editorial, film and photographic needs most effectively, please read the following guidelines, and then contact us (see below).

Basic Guidelines

  • Please give us at least 4 weeks notice of your request for assistance
  • Journalists should be ready to submit a letter of assignment on the publication’s letterhead from their editor indicating intent to publish their feature or article along with a recent copy of the publication they are writing for.
  • Freelance writers need to provide two recently published travel-related clips from an audited outlet, published within the last calendar year, for the request to be considered.
  • While we welcome the opportunity to work with television and film productions, SouthWest Germany cannot arrange any work visas or filming permits. Film crews must also have Public Liability Insurance to be able to film in many locations in SouthWest Germany.
