The Communication team reviews and distributes all UQ media releases in line with The University of Queensland’s Policy and Procedures 1.50.06 Communication and Comment Using the University’s Name.

All requests for UQ media releases take into consideration the audience for the story and whether it is suitable for mainstream or niche media outlets. M&C will provide advice on the best media approach, working with researchers and communication staff in faculties and institutes.

Those requests which are not suitable for general media distribution may be redirected to faculty web pages, social media, UQ Update or other appropriate communication channels.

Each request is assessed for consideration for UQ News and/or distribution to media. In assessing requests, the team will consider whether the content is suitable for mainstream or niche media, newsworthy, and suitable for UQ News. Please follow the process below to submit a media release request for consideration:
