Culture / Creativity



Annette Dittert is a foreign correspondent and passionate filmmaker for ARD, German TV. She became known to a wide audience as studio manager and correspondent in Warsaw, later in New York and London.

Poland remained an affair of the heart. London became her adopted home. It was love at first sight when she pitched her tents on the island for the first time in 2008. Since then, Annette Dittert has lived on the Regents Canal, on her houseboat Emilia. It remained her home, even after the end of her correspondent period in 2014, after which she moved across the world as a special correspondent from Hamburg.

Since 1 January 2019, she has returned to London full time for a second round as correspondent and studio manager of the ARD UK bureau.

Annette Dittert has been awarded two Grimme Prizes for her films. In 2004, she received the "Hanns Joachim Friedrichs Prize" for her reporting on Poland.

As a speaker, Annette Dittert is just as professional and on the pulse of the times like she is as a correspondent. She captivates her audience with her wealth of experience and her clear analyses as well as with her profound knowledge - often enriched with humorous anecdotes from her life as a correspondent.
