You have successfully entered some young people for Arts Award, congratulations! Now it's time to celebrate – and get some publicity for your young people's hard work and success.
Having young people's Arts Award achievements recognised – in your organisation, the local community and the media – is a valuable addition to the Arts Award process. It's great for their confidence and self-worth and could give them valuable insights into the workings of the press, broadcast and social media.
It's also a wonderful way of raising the profile of your work and your organisation (and of Arts Award and arts education more broadly) with young people and their families, local artists and cultural organisations, and the wider community. Your Arts Awards achievements could inspire others to get involved and bring exciting new opportunities.
So how do you get publicity for your project? Here are some ways that have worked for other Arts Award groups:
We have a range of resources to support you, including Arts Award centre logos for your website, emails, paperwork and publicity materials (login to your account to access these), as well as a guide to getting media interest and templates for your press release.
Arts Award centres are welcome to use the Arts Award logo, within our brand guidelines.
The Arts Award team can help you promote your successes and raise your profile. Mention or tag us (@ArtsAward or #ArtsAward) when using social media so we can share your posts.
Or write about your experiences and ideas in a guest blog for us. Just get in touch and pitch your idea for a post, explaining why it would be interesting to other advisers and centres. You could also apply to become a Trinity Champion Centre, sharing good practice and being an advocate for Arts Award – it could bring exciting opportunities like a professional photo shoot at your centre for Arts Award.
