Ever wondered how to get your event or project promoted in the local media? It all starts with a great media release. Find out how to write a media release (and get it published), get the tips and tricks that will help you give your project the publicity it deserves.

 

You've got your publicity images all lined up... but wait... what's that in the photo? A tissue box? An aerial sticking out of someone's head?

 

We've all been there. One of the first steps in getting your project 'out there' is having a great image. Learn what elements go together to make a great publicity photo - what formats, sizes and other information you need to get it published.

Join the team at Murray Arts for this workshop presented by Karen Gardner, Murray Arts General Manager and Jo Bartels, Murray Arts Projects Officer.

 

Apart from writing about 20 media releases a year on behalf of Murray Arts, Karen has sat in a radio station many times with a few seconds to spare before going on air, frantically reading media releases to help promote different projects right across the region. It was often the case that if she couldn't find out where, when and what the event was in about 5 seconds flat - it didn't get read out on air. Most things didn't get read out on air.

 

Jo is a practicing photographic artist, specialising in event photography and in artwork reproductions, but she is most often found with a camera in hand, enjoying yet another community project.

Get help from local artist Linda Fish to plan an exhibition.

The workshop will cover aspects of choosing a gallery space, closing dates for expressions of interest to exhibit, budgets, insurance, curating pitfalls and tips, catalogues and signage, invitations and organising an opening night extravaganza (or not) and costing artworks
