Information for the press
A variety of press opportunities will be provided in the course of the G7 Summit.
Given the strong media interest in the Summit and limited space available, access to a number of photo opportunities will be possible for a limited number of journalists only. Preference will be given to photo/video/tv journalists from the participating states.
All limited-access photo opportunities will be covered by host broadcasters and official photographers. Photos will be made available on the German G7 Presidency website.
Journalists who are not selected to take part in limited-access photo opportunities will be able to follow the event in question via CCTV in the Press Center.
Requests to take part in limited-access photo opportunities
Journalists from the various participating states must submit requests to take part in limited-access photo opportunities to their national press delegations.
German photo/video/tv journalists wanting to take part in limited-access photo opportunities can submit their requests by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org following publication of the detailed press programme. They are asked to indicate who they work for and which photo opportunities they want to take part in.
Photo/video/tv journalists are asked to keep in mind that some photo opportunities may be mutually exclusive. Requests will be answered shortly before the Summit. Submitting a request does not imply entitlement to be selected for a photo opportunity.
World feed and stand-ups
Due to spatial and security restrictions, the public service and private TV broadcasters in Germany are currently reaching agreement on providing a world feed (host broadcaster) based on the “Berlin model”, which will be available free of charge and copyright-free. Other live TV coverage cannot be permitted in Elmau or other locations linked to the G7 Summit.
