Please see the following guidelines
from Internal Communications regarding the submission of news items
We are always happy to receive items
for publication in our magazines, but they often fall at the first
hurdle. So, in order to make everyone's life easier we have
produced the following guidelines.
Words: Copy submitted
by email should be sent to us as a Microsoft Word attachment, or
written into the body of an email message. Stories sent through the
post should be sent as a typed document, as experience tells us
that we cannot always read people's handwriting.
Please note that the editorial team
will edit stories to meet house-style requirements and to fit
available space in publications.
You should also ensure that
all the following details are included in your
- Name of the member/branch/county
that the story involves
- If the story is about an event,
when and where it took place
- If it is a fundraising story, how
much money was raised (a rough figure is acceptable if the final
total is not yet known)
- A quote from someone who was
involved. If this is not available at the time of submission,
please send contact details of someone who would be able to provide
- A contact telephone number and
email address of someone who can provide further information, if
needed. Please bear in mind that these details may be
if submitted over email or on a CD, must be high-resolution and
saved as a jpeg file. Please note that print resolution is 300dpi
and a file size of less than 500kb is unlikely to be big enough for
us to use. Also, please do not embed images in a Word
Images may also need to be cropped by
our picture department to meet press requirements.
If submitted by post, photos must be
the originals, printed on photographic paper. We cannot accept
photocopies, or images have been printed onto standard printer
paper, as it results in a poor-quality image when printed.
If you have any questions about
our print requirements, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call us on 020 7880 7667.
Finally, please note that there are
only six issues of each publication per year and a limited amount
of space in each. While we try to publish as much news as possible,
there will always be some stories that are not published. However,
by following these guidelines, you will improve your story's
chances of being printed in Legion.
