Profiling young peoples' success in the community and local press

Stories from young people and centres are always important for Arts Award. 

Apart from recognising the inspiring achievements of young people, these stories play a huge part in convincing other young people to take part, and encouraging arts and media professionals to get involved in the award.

 

You can boost local publicity around Arts Award by:

  • celebrating young people's achievements at celebration events in your local community
  • promoting newsworthy events and successes of your young people to the local media
  • sharing news of your success on social media platforms
  • carrying the Arts Award centre logo on your website and publicity materials (adviser login required to download)
  • letting people know when your Arts Award group meets, especially if your centre is open to new members
  • engaging the active support of key community stakeholders including council members, politicians, parents and school representatives

  

Tools and techniques

Before contacting the media with a story, it's best to think carefully about the news angle or selling point of what you have to say.
