North Central News

Editorial Guidelines

Deadline for submission is on or around the 15th of the month for the following month’s issue, for example: Jan. 15 for the February issue. (If the 15th falls on a weekend day, the deadline is the following Monday).

Please include contact information of the person submitting the release (name and phone number), as well as all pertinent information such as event date/time/location, if applicable; contact information specific to the release (i.e. registration phone number and deadline date, or who to contact if the reader wants to make a donation, etc.) Also include a short biography of the owner, if local, and general description of the business. The submission should total no more than 200 words.

Priority is given to news releases and other information that is e-mailed, versus fax or postal mail. Please attach the document as a PDF or a Microsoft Word document, AND copy and past the text into the body of the e-mail as well, to avoid issues of incompatible software.

Preference is given to press releases or submissions related to businesses, people or organizations from the Central Phoenix area, or events taking place in this area: Indian School Road north to Thunderbird Road, and 19th Avenue east to 40th Street. Those releases that are about businesses, people, etc. outside of our distribution area will only run if judged relevant to our readers, and if space allows.

There is NO guarantee that your information will run, regardless of whether it is about North Central Phoenix news or not. Regular events, such as monthly meetings, will only go in as space permits. Releases promoting a certain company, restaurant, etc. can receive a news brief in our Business or Dining sections once every 4-6 months at no charge. Advertisers with North Central News may have their business briefs run more regularly.

Photos also are accepted via e-mail. Color photos are preferred; minimum size should be 5-inches wide, 180 dpi. Photos should be saved as .jpg, .eps or .tif files.

If you are unable to e-mail the photo, Mac-formatted CDs can be dropped in the mail to our office at: 5308 N. 12th Street #402, Phoenix, AZ  85014. Note: there is no guarantee that the CD will be returned.
