Our magazine, “16mm Today”, is typically 76 pages in length, of which 12 or so pages comprise advertisements placed by 16mm traders and organisers of 16mm events. Any new trader or event organiser who wishes to open an account should first contact the Treasurer, Colin Slight, at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide details of trading name, name of proprietor, contact address and contact telephone number.
“16mm Today” is published quarterly in February, May, August and November. Traders and event organisers need to prepare their advertisements by the following deadlines:
- For the May issue, by 1 April.
- For the August issue, by 1 July.
- For the November issue, by 1 October.
- For the February issue, by 1 January.
Advertisements should be sent direct to Donna Torres, who prepares all advertising artwork on our behalf:
- Email for electronic copies of your advertisement: send to Donna on email@example.com.
- Surface mail: Donna Torres, 10 Dee Court, Oakworth, Keighley, BD22 7RS.
When contacting Donna for the first time, please give her both your email address and a surface mail contact address and let her know whether you have already informed the treasurer of your intention to advertise.
The best electronic format to use for your advertisement is a high-resolution PDF, with all fonts and pictures embedded. If you cannot use this, then Word is the preferred format for text, with any original pictures or diagrams either sent by surface mail or sent electronically in jpg, tiff or eps format. Please also send a hard copy of your proposed advertisement by surface mail or email a copy in PDF format.
Donna will acknowledge receipt of all advertisements submitted by email and will send you a digital colour proof for you to check before publication. Please send any final changes by email or surface mail, since telephoned changes can be misunderstood.
The treasurer will issue an invoice after publication, together with a copy of the magazine, if you are not a member of the Association so that you can see your advertisement as printed. The invoice will be payable within 30 days. Should it still be outstanding at the copy date for the following magazine, the Association may refuse to accept subsequent advertisements until the outstanding amount is paid.
The Association has held advertising rates at the same amounts since 2011 despite increasing costs, and following a recent review these will increase from the 1st September 2017 as follows –
