How does ARA work?
ARA supplies media outlets with original written features, audio, video and photography ‘made to order.’ Interested editors can select from the story pitches on our website or from our weekly advisory, or call us if there is a specific story desired that is not listed.
Afterward, we will assign the story to a reporter and notify the editor of their direct contact details.


How do I assign a story?
Click on the story pitch and it will bring you to our assignment desk page with our contact details. You are welcome to telephone, email or fill out an assignment form.


Will I be able to work with the writers directly?
Yes. ARA encourages close cooperation between reporters and assigning editors.
Who will I invoice?
ARA directly.
How much does it cost?
It depends on the medium, length and complexity of the assignment and also whether the outlet desires to hold the copyright. Please contact us for further details.
What will the byline be?
Usually the reporter’s name. If the news outlet desires it, they may use Associated Reporters Abroad or ARA also.
In terms of turnaround time, what can I expect?
That is up to the client and depends also on the type of story. We encourage deadlines to be negotiated at the time of assignment. Stories can range from a one-day turnaround to several weeks or even months depending on length.
What kind of media does ARA work in?
We provide content for print, online and electronic media as well as photography and video.
Which regions does ARA cover?
Our clients can arrange for us to cover a story anywhere in Europe. For other regions such as North Africa or the Middle East, we can arrange coverage on request.
Does ARA provide content in any other language besides English?
Generally, no. Although on request, we can arrange to provide content in French, German and Spanish.
