PRESS TEAM

We will have a press team working throughout the conference. The press team moves around and watches out for interesting news stories. It produces a souvenir highlights film of Wicklow MUN and a newspaper reporting on resolutions discussed, heated debates, interesting notes handed over by the admin. staff etc... 

The newspaper will be published electronically at the end of the day - it will contain articles about what has been happening around the conference and other features to keep people talking. 

Objectives:

  • to produce media content prior to the conference
  • to document and publicise events during the conference (e.g. social evening, declamation contest)
  • to produce a newspaper during the conference reporting on the interesting discussions taking place (political analysis)
  • to write articles and take photos for the daily newspaper
  • to organise media content for the opening ceremony
  • to work on a video for the closing ceremony and for a souvenir after the conference

The Press Team students should be interested in:

  • Photography
  • Film Production 
  • Writing
  • Social Media
  • Editing 

Importance of Press Team Role:

  • the press team adds a strong democratic feel to the conference
  • press team reporters watch out for any errors made by delegates or chairs and report any scandals and incidents (dramatically of course)
  • team leaders will delegate members to organise the printing and collection of newspapers
  • everyone on the team is responsible to help with the deadline for the newspaper every day at 15.00 – all members need to work together to get any last minute work done and hand out the newspapers on time
  • being a journalist is all about chasing the headlines and working out a plan for your edition - what features do you want to include in your newspaper?
