In October, Hannah Mckay was sent out by Reuters to photograph the Rohingya crisis in Cox Bazar on the southeast coast of Bangladesh. Over 17 days, the 29-year-old shot refugees, those who had made it safely to camps, those who were in the process of travelling and those who weren’t so lucky. With just a driver and fixer, a local man who had made the crossing with his family in the ‘90s, they rose at sunrise, broke in the middle of the day due to heat and worked until sunset.
NME marked an end of an era today after announcing plans to cease print production after 66 years. The publisher’s parent group Time Inc UK announced today that the weekly publication is “no longer financially viable”, and the brand will now focus its attention solely on its online edition. The iconic magazine entertained and informed music fans ever since launching in 1952, and along with the likes of Melody Maker and Smash Hits held huge influence on the industry for decades.
This week the UK’s National Geographic Traveller announced the winners of their prestigious photography competition. While it was a close call, the grand prize winner was decided as Renato Granieri with his image of king penguins in South Georgia. Granieri’s prize for winning is a six-night wildlife photography adventure in the Carpathian Mountains - so it sounds like he’s already on his way to having a fighting chance at the top spot next year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
