Media Tools

Media Guide

Sample Media Advisory A media advisory succinctly conveys the key details of an upcoming event - the "who", "what", "when", "where", "why" - which helps media personnel decide whether they can cover your event. Use this sample advisory as an example only, and fill in the details of your Food Day event before you send it to any news outlets. Media advisories should be sent a few days to a week before your event.

Sample Press Release A press release is a more thorough description of your event, and should contain enough information for a reporter to write a story even if she could not attend. Be sure to include quotes from key figures, and convey a narrative that will appeal to the public; your press release could be picked up by a news outlet and used verbatim. Use this sample press release as a template to create your own, and send it to your media targets the day of your event.
