Advertising of events and raising awareness of activities, can be greatly facilitated by early contact with appropriate people in different media and at national and provincial museums. A number of groups and individuals have been identified as important targets for WYP information. These are listed below, along with CAP members, who have been designated as contacts for these groups and individuals. CAP members, who have contacts with other national media personalities, are invited to join this WYP sub-committee by contacting the CAP office.
Coordinators of local events should assume primary responsibility for publicizing of their events with the local media.
