NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This week marks PR Newswire's one year anniversary of the new PR Newswire for Journalists, which provided members of the media with advanced search options optimized for all platforms and the Beyond Bylines media blog.  That was just the beginning of user-friendly enhancements made to the site.  Today, PR Newswire celebrates the revamped site by announcing the addition of new features and functionality for journalists and bloggers.

Upgraded Multimedia Gallery

Video and audio are now included in PR Newswire for Journalists' multimedia gallery, adding to the thousands of existing downloadable photos, logos, and headshots available. There also is a documents section, where white papers, case studies, infographics, and company reports can be found.  All images are searchable by keyword, industry, geography, and date. Source and press contact information also are included.

"We continue to evolve the features and functionality of the newly redesigned PR Newswire for Journalists" said PR Newswire's Vice President of Audience Sandra Azzollini. "Today, the website offers more access to multimedia including images, video, audio and documents. As a result, monthly visits to the Multimedia section on the new PR Newswire for Journalists site have grown by double-digit percentage rates since the launch in February 2014."

Community Page Makeover

The redesigned Community page is easier to navigate and highlights the latest news in the ever-changing media industry.  Features include the most recent Beyond Bylines blog posts, job listings, and media moves across the US and the UK. 

"The Community section offers journalists and bloggers a place to stay abreast of media trends and tools," says Brett Simon, Director of Audience Relations.  "Beyond Bylines columns regularly focus on everything from grammar rules to best practices for blogging to other newsgathering tips and tricks in our socially connected world.  Add to that a section listing employment opportunities for journalists and updates on new hires and you have a Community page that includes valuable information and insights about the media industry."
