Unless otherwise specified and subject to the condition that the photographer is named, all press photos are available free of charge for editorial coverage of the Burgtheater and its venues and events. Use on websites and blogs is only permitted with a resolution of 72dpi. It is not permitted to exploit the press photos for commercial purposes or to edit them in such a way that they are alienated or the content is changed. If you wish to use a press photo, please send us a specimen copy.

It is prohibited to use these photos in any other way, to pass them on to third parties and to offer a high-resolution download option.

If you do not intend to use production photos for the purpose of current reporting, please contact the press office or, if the photographer’s contact details are provided with the images, please contact the photographer directly.

Selected journalists receive our press releases, which contain information about press-relevant events and other Burgtheater news. We maintain a directory of journalists’ addresses for the purpose of sending out press releases, in accordance with the provisions under Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interests pursued by the controller). We process the following data: first name / last name / media outlet / contact details. If the journalists themselves did not provide the data for this directory of journalists’ addresses, then it was gleaned from publicly accessible sources such as the website of the organisation in question or the Austrian Media Handbook.

Data will not be passed on to third parties.
