Before beginning to search for a sample press release format it is important to give some thought to which publications your feature is going to appear it. From there it is easy to go to the companies websites and look for submission guidelines. Even if they do not offer a sample press release format it is still possible to examine the documents previously published to gather information on what works and what does not. It would be a good idea to print a few of them and pay special attention to where specific types of information go. As an example some sample press release format guidelines state that the basic contact and location information of the business should be found in the first paragraph of the press release.
If you are trying to get published in a major syndicate they may feel that this information belongs in the last paragraph instead. The only way you will really find out where it belongs is to study the latest publications by the syndicate. Other than studying direct from the publication resources you can also purchase software that contains a sample press release format. Typically you may find a large number of formats available within these packages. This can be of immense help to you especially if you want to format your press release for a number of different publications.
