Publicity and Promotion

One of my main aims while on my Vodafone WOD placement is to increase the awareness of the work Building Trust carry out. Over the last few weeks I have been working hard to publicise the work of my chosen charity and promote the results of the Cambodian housing competition. In a previous blog I shared with you the winning and short listed designs from the competition. I would like to share with you some of the fantastic articles which have been written about the competition results:

The above article was published on Inhabitat’s website,  the piece generated a high level of social media activity and promotion with over 550 Facebook shares. You can read the full article here

I was able to gain coverage in international Architecture and Design press such as The Architect’s Journal,  E-Architect, ArchDaily and World Architecture News. I would like to thank the journalists and writers for their assistance in further promoting the work of the three NGO’s involved.

I have been reaching out to international press to cover the competition results and was able to secure a live radio interview on Radio Australia with David Cole, Director of Building Trust International. I hope that with the wide spread coverage of the competition we will widen the exposure for the NGO’s involved and highlight the increased need to provide sustainable new housing solutions to low income families in Cambodia.

A great article about the Cambodian Housing project was placed in last weekend’s edition of the Phnom Penh Post. I hope this will assist in promoting  the exhibition of winning and short listed designs which will be held in Phnom Penh in May.
