BMC launches new online media centre

Posted by Tina Gardner on 28/08/2014

A new media centre is available on the BMC website to help journalists cover stories on climbing, hill walking or mountaineering and issues affecting mountain areas.

The media centre includes all the things you’d expect such as latest press releases and contact details for enquiries, editorial and advertising, plus lots more.

BMC press & PR officer, Tina Gardner said: “All our media support tools are now in one place, making it easier to find the information you need. We’ve added an image gallery and bespoke factsheets to help with popular media enquiries, which we’ll be adding to regularly.”

What’s new?

The media centre can now guide you to latest news and chat on BMC social media, point you to our growing range of BMC apps, and show you how to embed BMC TV films onto your website. You can also find information about BMC publications, logos and upcoming events, as well as our latest campaigns and sponsorship opportunities.

The image gallery links to our Flickr galleries; these house images of climbing, hill walking and mountaineering for general media use as well as images for specific news releases.

The factsheet section brings together useful articles on subjects such as Everest, GB climbing champions and how to start climbing and hill walking. 

For those reporting on mountain incidents, the factsheet answering the question ‘how dangerous is climbing?’ gives useful statistics and helps put incidents into perspective against the long term trend of decreasing accident rates.
