Media Policy for the DRA
Thank you for your interest in The Dude Ranchers’ Association (DRA) and our 100+ member ranches located across the U.S. and Canada. We look forward to working with you to inspire others to explore the Western way of life along with amazing amenities, experiences and awe-inspiring locales of our guest ranches. We’re here to assist you in your editorial, photographic and broadcast needs.
Due to the tremendous number of requests we receive, we must limit consideration for a press trips and other media visits to the following categories:
- Print Media - Editors, Reporters, Writers and Photographers
- Web Media - Bloggers (case-by-case basis), Web Editors, etc.
- Broadcast Media - Producers, News Directors, Assignment Editors, Videographers and On-Air Personnel (Anchors, Hosts, etc.)
- Freelance Writers
Camera crews, film crews and photographers must be escorted by a ranch representative at all times.
A letter of assignment and recent example of travel or travel-related feature coverage must also be provided. We require a minimum of three weeks notice. The DRA is unable to provide airfare for most media trips to accredited ranches, but depending on the nature of your assignment, lodging, transportation, food and activities may be provided by the DRA or ranch member entities either gratis or at a discounted media rate. Other requests are carefully reviewed and may be presented to DRA member ranches for their consideration. Blackout periods may also be in place throughout the year due to the seasonality of most ranches. We try our best to accommodate your needs, but final decisions are made at the discretion of the DRA. We look forward to welcoming you to the original all-inclusive experience: the dude ranch!
