Let be a parametric variational double integral and be a system of distinct Jordan curves. We prove the existence of multiply connected, conformally parametrized minimizers of by solving the Douglas problem for parametric functionals on multiply connected schlicht domains. As a by-product we obtain a simple isoperimetric inequality for multiply connected -mimimizers, and we discuss regularity results up to the boundary which follow from corresponding results for the Plateau problem.
