Edinburgh is the biggest arts festival on the planet so getting press coverage for your show can be hard. IdeasTap to the rescue!
We’ve drafted in the services of industry expert Elin Morgan to help you to prepare for Edinburgh and maximise your exposure. She’ll provide six lucky individual members or companies with half an hour of one-to-one PR advice at IdeasTap HQ on Tuesday 1 May 2012.
This brief is open to IdeasTap members of any age but you must be planning to take a show to Edinburgh this August. To apply, upload a word document with an overview of your show, including details of your Edinburgh venue, and an outline of what you hope to gain from taking part in this workshop, as well as one draft press release for the show.
