«SWISSPERFORM takes on an important social task by protecting the rights of actors and speakers. Having a reliable partner on the complex media market that also operates internationally is an enormous relief and would be impossible to manage on one's own. In addition to this direct economic benefit, I also particularly appreciate SWISSPERFORM's support of individual colleagues for special achievements through the TV awards. I am grateful for the work of SWISSPERFORM.»Rachel Braunschweig
