Press & Photo Guidelines

 

Press Releases:

Markee Magazine welcomes all press releases which are of potential interest to our readers. 

The following guidelines are provided so that you can write your press release for maximum impact, with the greatest chance of being accepted for publication.

General Guidelines:  For your press release, follow the adage that "less is more."  Submissions should be 200 words or less. Contact information should be included. We are interested in current film and video industry news or projects.

Headline:  The headline should read like a news headline: concise, catchy, and factual.

Copy:  The copy should read like a news article with some optional subtle publicity sprinkled in.  Over the top self-promotion or unabashed hype is not taken seriously nor accepted by our readers.  Do not capitalize text nor use bold, italic, or underline formatting.

Editing:  Press releases will be edited for both content and length, as needed, to meet these goals and obtain maximum interest; this is at the sole discretion of Markee Magazine.  Not all submissions can be used.

Photos:

Photographs accompanying press releases are encouraged. Digital files should be 100dpi, 4x5 inches minimum size, RGB color, and formatted as jpeg or gif files. Note: photographs should depict a working situation. Head shots are generally not considered.

Web site:  Press releases and photos meeting the above guidelines will be included on-line.
