Are you looking for more publicity leads and opportunities?

Want to build better relationships with South African journalists?

Find new PR opportunities

Media Alerts will send you a daily email detailing any requests that journalists have for sources, contacts, pictures and press releases on specific topics.

Reach journalists who need your content & contacts

If you are able to help a journalist by providing them with good and relevant content, then we’ll give you the details to contact them directly.

By helping the journalists with their current stories, you can open up a win-win relationship of trust and influence.

Register below to start receiving your daily dose of opportunities, sent at 10:30 each morning, Monday to Friday.

It’s free, but there is one rule

This service is completely free – it’s a complimentary service by Encyclomedia, South Africa’s targeted, quality media database provider – but there is one rule that we ask you to follow.

The only rule is that you only ever contact a journalist, editor or producer when you really have relevant, interesting content that matches the journalist’s requirements.

That’s the way all successful PR professionals work anyway. But to protect journalists (and the reputation of the PR industry), anyone abusing this rule will be removed from the mailing list.

Got it? Now sign yourself up and let’s get going.

Do you want to collaborate with other PR professionals and brands?

Media Alerts makes it easy.

If you’re looking for help on any of the following, please use this form and we’ll share your request with our network:

  • Need goodie bags for an event.
  • Need prizes for a competition.
  • Looking for brand sponsorship of some sort.
  • Looking for an expert for a speaking opportunity.
  • Keen to try a brand or PR collaboration of some sort.
  • Any PR or promotional-related opportunity that could be of interest and benefit to our (mostly) public relations-oriented subscribers.

But sorry, no advertising

All the submitted requests are moderated and we unortunately cannot accept any requests relating to advertising, any paid-for opportunities, or otherwise inappropriate requests.

Important notes

The Media Alerts emails are sent to our subscribers at 10:30am, Mondays to Fridays.

We’d need to receive your request by latest 10:00am if you want your request to be published on the same day.

New feature: For your privacy protection, we won’t publish your actual email address. Instead, we’ll create a temporary Media Alerts address to forward all responses to you, which will cease to exist at the end of your specified deadline date.

If you need to share your actual email address for any reason, please add it (and any other contact details) to the body of your request.

Happy collaborating!
