Propose a press event to AGU

The AGU Public Information Office welcomes proposals for press events at AGU meetings from PIOs of scientific societies, universities, agencies, and organizations. We appreciate your help in identifying and publicizing findings from AGU meetings that are new, significant, surprising, quirky, funny and more. See this newsworthiness criteria guide for help determining what science is newsworthy.

To propose ideas for press releases, press conferences, workshops and media availabilities, please read the instructions and answer all questions in the AGU Press Event Proposal Form document. When you are ready to submit your proposal, please copy your answers from the Word document into the Press Event Proposal Form below, upload the Word document and click Submit.

For detailed information about what we look for in a pitch,  watch a recording of our “Pitch a Press Event to AGU webinar or download a copy of the webinar slides.

For examples of past press events AGU has held, please view the press conference schedules for the 2018 Fall Meeting, 2017 Fall Meeting, and 2016 Fall Meeting.

If you identify potentially newsworthy research from your institution that does not rise to the level of a press conference, you can submit it for inclusion in one of AGU’s reporter tip sheets by filling out the Tip Sheet Nomination Form below. PIOs can submit up to 10 individual abstracts or sessions for inclusion in a tip sheet.
