Media & promotions toolkit

Media the CRISP attracts frequent coverage, which helps groups fundraise and find members.

We’ve written some media tips and this draft article that you can tailor and submit to your local paper (who can use the program photos). Please ensure you have meaningful consent from participants and let us know about upcoming media, so that we can notify the Department of Home Affairs.


Here are some photos from the program that you can download and use to add interest to your creations.

Using Canva

Canva is a free, online tool that people who aren’t designers and don’t have any special skills can use to create images and documents that look properly designed. The first time you use Canva, you’ll need to create an account – it’s free and you just need to use your email address. The first page of our templates outlines how to make edits and download your finished design.
