Often companies, associations, politicians, public figures need to organize a press conference to communicate important information to journalists and other gatekeepers. In this post I'll explain how to organize a press conference and I'll show you some suggestions that have come back to me very useful during the last years. Times Generally, the press conference is organized at 11 am, in order to give journalists time to write articles in the afternoon. The invitation should be sent to the media list of journalists about 5-7 days before, better if on Friday, to ensure that the conference is included in the weekly agendas of press agency meetings. It is important to check that there are no other concurrent press conferences, perhaps more relevant.
SENATOR Sonny Angara has called on the Filipino youth to be “climate warriors” even as he urged the entire nation to participate in the “Earth Hour” to be held on March 25 and appealed for a wide unity in protecting and saving the planet from environment plunderers. Earth Hour is an annual global environmental event aimed at encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the last Saturday of March, as a symbol of their commitment to the planet. “Earth Hour is more than just how much energy is saved when we switch off our lights for one hour. It is about inspiring people to unite and against the destruction of the environment and climate change. This year’s Earth Hour switch-off event
The class required us to create a mock public relations press conference for an event of our choosing. This project was the excellent experience of real-world applications of a communication degree.

Debriefing is something we have always been taught about in school, from day one. Before experiencing practicum hands-on, I almost dismissed the importance of it. Now that I am experiencing real interactions with clients and hearing about their struggles, trauma and crimes they have committed, I get it. I am lucky enough to be doing practicum in a setting that really focuses on the importance of debriefing. My direct supervisor is always ready to debrief with me after any interaction with a client or any major event that happens during the day.

2.2.3 Types of Frames News frames are defined as “conceptual tools which media and individuals rely on to convey, interpret and evaluate information” (Neuman et al., 1992, p. 60). Journalists may not automatically make use of frames to deliberately distort the facts of a story. However, what may appear to be small changes in the way a story is framed may greatly impact how readers understand the text. “The framing of the presentation of events and news in the mass media can thus systematically affect how recipients of the news come to understand these events” (Price, Tewksbury, & Powers, 1995, p.4). De Vreese (2005) identifies two types of news frame; issue-specific frames and generic frames.
However, applying the key components I have been taught in Public Relations studies when drafting a press release, i.e. the 5W’s and H, having an appealing headline and following the inverted pyramid model was really helpful. Starting with the most important and pertinent information at the top of the press release and progressing with the least important information was a powerful concept to create interest and to convey a message to the media. It was mandatory to use the proper format as the press spend at least three seconds choosing whether a public statement merits perusing, hence it is fundamental that all the information is displayed at the start to hook the media in. Moreover, applying photos in press releases is becoming a vital part of public relations.
