If you are unsure of how to structure your news article these guidelines can help:
Write a good headline! It helps if your headline catches the eye instantly.
The first paragraph is crucial! Try to insert a very short, punchy first paragraph summarising the aims of the press release. Your press release should start off strong, followed by the detail.
Quotations. Wherever relevant please include a “quote” from someone within your organisation.
Your details. Ensure you include contact details when submitting your press release as we may wish to follow it up and request more information from you.
Keep it short and sweet. A press release should be several paragraphs long, and certainly no longer than 500 words in total. Remember, we would like a snapshot rather than an essay. We will contact you if we want to find out more.
Style and Formatting. Make sure you write your release in the third person and proof read it before pressing the “send” button. Clearly mark the publication as a “Press Release”, and write “End of Release” following the content. Please send your press release in the body of the email using plain text and not HTML. The simpler, the better. We would certainly encourage you to attach accompanying photographs, though please do not attach anything else.
We look forward to receiving your news!
