We want all of Australia to learn about science and hear about this year’s National Science Week festival through the media.

But what stories get media coverage? What are journalists looking for? And how do you reach them?

Register your event on the Science Week website by Monday 19 June 2023 and you can find out directly from the journalists themselves.

Feel free to use our handy guide to writing a great event description.

All registered event organisers are invited to attend an exclusive online media training forum on Wednesday 21 June 2023, 11am – 12.30pm AEST, presented by Science Week’s national publicity agency Science in Public. Participation is free.

The ‘Meet the Media’ forum will involve a panel of working journalists from TV, radio, print and online media. They will share what they look for in a story, what gets covered, their timelines, and what they need from event organisers. They will discuss what they do, what works for each medium, and what makes the cut. You’ll also get to ask your own questions.

How it will work

Once you have registered your Science Week event, you can sign up for the forum via Eventbrite: If someone other than the event organiser is managing event promotion, they can sign up through Eventbrite – just be sure to state the event the attendee is connected with.

On Tuesday 20 June 2023, we will send the event Zoom link to the attendees who what RSVP’d through Eventbrite.

We hope to see you then and/or in National Science Week!
