Media Inquiries

The West Virginia Department of Tourism works with reporters and media representatives on a daily basis and welcomes media requests. This includes the use of b-roll video and photography housed in our collections to be used as a promotion of the State of West Virginia as a desired travel destination. 

A few guidelines must be recognized while using our branded assets. Those include crediting the West Virginia Department of Tourism with each photo offered in the Image Library housed below. We also reserve the right to request credit on all video housed in the B-Roll Library below. 

If you publish anything as the result of the story ideas, photography or b-roll from the West Virginia Department of Tourism, please let us know so we can share your work across our social media platforms and say thank you.
