DEADLINE: Anniversary announcements must be received at our office at least eight weeks prior to the date of the celebration or within eight weeks after the anniversary. Announcements are published free of charge. In most cases, they will appear a week or two after we have received the completed form. Announcements may be published later due to the quantity we receive or space limitations.
COMMUNITY POLICY: Announcements will be published only in the communities where the couple lives or have lived in the past. Please indicate former areas of residence that Community Newspapers covers.
NAME POLICY: Community Newspapers does not use courtesy titles, such as Mr., Mrs. or Dr. First and last names are required for everyone mentioned in the announcement.
PHOTO E-MAIL SUBMISSIONS: We welcome photos submitted via e-mail. Type “anniversary” in the subject line, with the last name of the couple and a contact's phone number in the body of the e-mail, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. In digital format (.jpg), photos must be at least 200kb.
PHOTO CRITERIA: Black-and-white or color, high-quality photos of the couple may be submitted via mail up to size 8-by-10. Vertical photos work best. We do not pay for the use of photos, nor will we publish the name of the photographer. We reserve the right not to publish a photo at the discretion of the editor.
PHOTO POLICY: Photo prints will be returned only if a self-addressed, stamped envelope is provided.
