We can quickly print, copy and circulate
your press releases in the Press Gallery in the Federal Parliament in Canberra.
In that way, in addition to the major media, the Prime Minister, Opposition,
Democrats and the Parliamentary Library also receive the material directly.
We can photocopy your press statement from a fax or e-mail
(firstname.lastname@example.org) on to plain paper or,
if you want to make a better impression, you can provide us, in advance, with
some of your letterhead. (We keep it safely).
Alternatively, if time permits, you could forward 125
copies of your press statement with instructions about the timing of distribution.
Don't forget, if you want the media to use the statement, they will want the
copy immediately after it has been released - two days late is days too late!.
Subscribers also e-mail to email@example.com their own press releases, studies, etc, for use by our News Managers. If considered to be of policy significance in the current environment, they may be distributed to other subscribers, as part of our news services. There is no charge for this but we reserve the right to decide whether the press statement warrants e-mailing as a policy matter.
Our staff attends all major press conferences and
lockups. In general, we will make prior arrangements with you to supply
relevant information quickly. If you know of a press conference that
you want us to attend or monitor, please let us know.
If you need information beyond what is on our website,
call us. In many cases we can provide the answers immediately, which
is part of the service. If the research looks like requiring significant resources,
we will let you know and provide an estimate.
