Register online for the 2012 Media Relations Summer Camp. The camp, being held July 10 and July 12 at the Hamilton Spectator, is offered free of charge to nonprofits and community groups in Greater Hamilton. Application deadline is June 15. Up to 12 organizations will be selected to attend the camp, with up to 2 campers each. Selections will be based on the strength of the story idea proposed in the registration.
Campers need to commit to 3 things:
Attend both days (9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
Promise not to pitch stories about cutting ribbons with giant scissors, accepting giant fake cheques, group photos of people in suits wearing hard hats and holding shiny new shovels or your next gala dinner, garage sale, golf tournament or dance-a-thon / bowl-a-thon.
