Getting media coverage can be at best a challenge and at worst a nightmare. Sometimes, even getting a response from your local paper can be a headache. What can you do to improve your chances of getting good publicity?


In this seminar, three media professionals provided their takes on how small to medium art organisations are able to develop mutually beneficial relationships with the press. It focused on improving media relations, writing effective press releases, pitching stories and providing relevant content to publishers.


The presenters were:

Gina McColl, Arts Editor, The Age

Dylan Rainforth, Editor, Art Guide Australia

Sharon Wells, Publicist
