[edit] Introduction

As representatives of Fedora, ambassadors have many opportunities to promote Fedora on a one-to-one basis, or to promote Fedora to small groups.

Ambassadors also have the unique opportunity to promote Fedora on a local level through their local news media. This would include, but would not be limited to, press releases and press contacts regarding Fedora-based activities and events in an ambassador's area.

The aim of this wiki is to help ambassadors get the most from their opportunities in promoting Fedora in their local news media. It is not a substitute for Fedora policy -- past, present or future -- regarding contacting and/or releasing news to the media.
