Submissions

Below we'll go into detail about different types of submissions to the paper you might like to make, and how to format them.

Editorials

The Frontenac News is dedicated to providing you, our readers, high quality, factual regional news occurring within the distribution range of the Frontenac News. We welcome your opinions on matters of importance within our community and strive to present our region in a favourable light.

The Frontenac News is guided by the following editorial criteria:

  1. has regional content from the distribution range of the Frontenac News
  2. meets acceptable journalistic standards of factual accuracy, writing style, balanced reporting and reader interest;
  3. whenever possible contributes to a sense of pride in the region, and when events and analyses do not present the region in a favourable light, then;
  4. the analyses and commentary should be presented in ways that don't unnecessarily polarize the community but could lead to constructive action;
  5. provides individuals an opportunity to publish well formulated opinions on matters of importance in the region.

Images

Whether submitting images for articles or for ads, please follow these guidelines:

  • Press optimized PDFs are preferred.
  • JPG, TIF*, SVG or EPS** are also okay.

*JPG and TIF should be a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, maximum 600 dpi at dimensions specified. At lower resolutions text will be rendered poorly. With some applications e.g. Printshop, the ad will need to be created 2 or 4 times larger than finished dimensions in order to meet the minimum resolution. If the ad is not colour, convert it to greyscale to reduce file size. Some applications merely desaturate the image, making files larger than necessary, check this with an image editing application.

**SVG or EPS Please outline/curve all fonts.

Indesign needs all fonts, images, and a printed version provided.
