Find out how to improve your chances and seize the opportunity to pose your questions directly to the people who are most involved in the decision-making process.

Make The Media Want You @ 7:00pm

The media landscape is constantly evolving. As an artist looking for airtime or ink, you need to be strategic and creative about attracting attention. It involves some introspection, a bit of homework, and knowing who to bring your story to. Blanketing all of media with your pitch is no longer an effective plan. Influencing the right people with a targeted pitch, coupled with social media traction, will get better results. Register here
