We would encourage you to seek coverage from your local weekly newspapers, as we recognise that many schools have established relationships with these papers. If you want to send a news release to your local papers we have provided a suggested draft (this can be downloaded form the right hand side of this page).
Media coverage of Designers into Schools Week usually involves photography and sometimes filming in school. Because the permission of parents is required, we have provided a suggested draft photography permission letter for the schoolsl to give to them to sign (this can be downloaded from the right hand side of this page).
If you would like advice on gaining media coverage please contact Helen Thompson of the Design Council Media Team on 020 7420 5286 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
