Press release template

The following image is a template of a standard press release which the Press Office will distribute to the appropriate media.

All press releases must include a headline, sub-heading and a notes to editors section listing the contact information of the academics mentioned. The number of paragraphs will vary according to the newsworthiness of the story, however, the introduction must always answer the five Ws and a quotation is always needed. It is good practice to limit press releases to approximately 300-350 words, featuring the key information presented with an angle in mind.

The boiler plate will be added by the Press Office upon release, and will include a Press Office contact as well as facts and figures about the University of Leicester.
