Contribute an Article
We publish articles about Events and Groups in North Northamptonshire and other items of interest to the Community but we do not include business advertising. We would welcome your contribution.
Articles are usually between 250 and 500 words and high standards are the norm. "Facts" must be carefully checked.
We are obsessive about branding and so all our pages follow the same layout; we will need to get together a Headline, Strapline, the Main Text for the left of the page and a Picture for the right.
We are very grateful to receive the text alone. We need a minimum of 200 words. If you supply more of the components above, that is a bonus but if not, we will find something suitable. We reserve the right to edit any material as we feel necessary.
The options for your picture are:
- 250px x 250px for the right hand column
- 240px x 400px web standard rectangle for the right hand column
Additionally, we will accept:
- 468px x 60px web standard banner for insertion in your text
We can float one or two (no more) additional images in the main block of text - maximum 250px x 250px
One of the above images may be from a business that sponsors your event, group or article. So long as their products, services and aims and objectives are compatible with our own, we will include their notice with a note like "This article is sponsored by". You may retain any payment you receive for this for yourself or for your charity.
If you want to contribute the background image too, it needs to be 2560px x 1440px, though we can crop or resize from larger.
We will publish your article as soon as we can. If we receive several in a short while, we will work through them as quickly as possible. Sometimes we may delay non-time-specific items for a day or two so that they do not get lost among a group of more urgent articles.
Each article about an event will be hidden after it ends.
Hidden articles are kept on file for revision and re-publication when appropriate (e.g. for annual events).
Please e-mail your text and any image attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
