Tallinn, 1. aprill – Tunnustamaks anonüümseid internetikommentaatoreid, asutas suhtekorraldaja Ivo Rull Pikakoivalise Ajakirjanduse Preemia.

Rulli sõnul on pikakoivaline ajakirjandus selline, mis aitab lugejatel jõuda kiiremini, kõrgemale ja kaugemale.

“Ilmselgelt on anonüümne netikommentaar jäänud täna ühiskonna poolt vääriliselt tunnustamata. Ent meediatekste täiendavates netikommentaarides pakutakse sageli analüüsi, sotsiaalset tausta ja värsket kujundit. Hea netikommar teab – vähem möla, pikem samm!” ütles Rull.

Pikakoivalise Ajakirjanduse tänavuseks preemiasummaks on 100 000 kutserit.

“Kuna preemia ěüriisse on kutsutud nii Luik, Haug kui Vähk, on võitja IP-aadressi selgitamine keeruline, ent siiski tänuväärt ettevõtmine,“ ütles Rull.

Estonian Olympic Committee (EOC), PR-company Rull & Rumm and Roi Ltd. arranged a series of media training for Estonian sports managers. The training’s main idea was to give a review of attitudes and tendencies, dominating in Estonian media; fill in knowledge concerning the peculiarity of media relations; and practice giving interviews in different styles.

Almost 50 managers of different sports subunions and associations took part in the series of media trainings, carried out by Ivo Rull, the manager of the PR-company Rull & Rumm.

“Very keen interest was shown towards participation as media relations are the best seen part of any company’s PR-process,” justifies the head manager of the training, EOC’s project manager Sven Sommer. “One of the side targets was to give subunions and associations an impulse for organizing similar seminars inside their organizations, as EOC is not able to cover all the needs for media training of Estonian sportsmen and clubs.”

”The first feedback concerning the media training was extremely positive. Still, we are sure to perform a more thorough questionnaire, which should show the focus of the field in the future,” Sommer said. “Most of the participants found that media-oriented trainings should go on regularly merely because of rapid changes taking place in the media field.”

Rull & Rumm is on the fifth place in PR companies' rating in special edition Turunduse TOP published by Äripäev on March 20th, 2002. According to Äripäev during 2001 there have formed a distinct group of five leaders: Hill & Knowlton Eesti, KPMS & Partners, Corpore, Ots & Partnerid and Rull & Rumm.

Äripäev is quoting the Rull & Rumm' head Ivo Rull, who says erudition to be the motto at PR service market of the year 2002. The claim grows smaller for the services, that clients have opportunity to arrange on their own and not less effectively (part of the media relations, information exchange within the company) or to order from specialized agencies (organizing events). The claim is growing bigger for services needing extensive knowledge, experience and analysis ability (crisis communication, lobby, strategic consulting, etc).

Clients value essential potential in PR companies much more than external glamour. Thus PR executives ought to become consultants, says Ivo Rull to Äripäev.
