Press releases are a presentation of facts that are sent to journalists in the hope that they'll get published and turned into stories. That's whether you're approaching magazines, newspapers or broadcast media, a press release aims to shout about something you've done or achieved, helping to raise your profile and consequently boost your business. How you write a press release is determined by the 'who, what, when, where, why and how? ', i.e. what's the story about? When's it happening?
Drawing inspiration from deep, dense forests and the darkness of night, Lithuanian illustrator Martynas Pavilonis, aka White White Dog, dreams up creatures and characters that reveal her wild and wonderful imagination. "You can't see properly when it's dark, so you start to imagine lots of things, lurking in the shadows. I like to say that I see more at night than in daylight. This poor sight wakes up my creativity like nothing else."
Head over to Fashion Space Gallery next month to check out Super Sharp, an exhibition curated by Tory Turk and jointly conceived with Saul Milton of Chase & Status (remember them?). It's the first instalment of RTRN II JUNGLE; a series of exhibitions and events documenting the styles and sounds of British rave culture in the nineties. Super Sharp explores the appropriation of luxury Italian designer brands in the underground music scenes of Jungle and UK Garage.
@AngelaADunne It’s a shame isn’t it. Such an innocent pursuit so often hated. To the point where I’ve been threatened with being mowed down. This. In a National Park where the speed limit is minimal. By a man in his seventies with his wife in the passenger seat shouting abuse at me. Sigh.
I’ve been very fortunate not to experience any negativity on my rides. That’s not to say these issues don’t exist. I’m frustrated that they still do. If anyone in Manchester wants to get into cycling I’m happy to help! Can advise on bikes, kit and routes! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-41737483
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".
