Did your child make the honor roll or win the spelling bee?
Is your church or civic group planning a fundraiser?
Were you named salesman of the month at work?
Are you celebrating a special anniversary, or is your child getting married?
Did your child’s baseball or soccer team win? By how much? Who were the star players? Got a picture from the game?
Do you need to generate publicity for your club or organization?
These sorts of things are news, big news, not only for you, but for all of your friends and neighbors.
Chances are you want to share that news with them, and there’s no better way to do that than through The Sun.
Of course, there is no charge to publish community news in our print edition or on our website.
The Sun is delivered weekly to select addresses in Deptford, so, when your news or picture appears in the newspaper, the residents of Deptford see it. We update our website every day.
The best part is that getting your news or photo into the paper and onto the website is easy, too. Really easy.
Here’s our step-by-step outline for getting publicity in The Sun.
First, here’s how to contact us: Call us at (856) 779-3800. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send us regular mail at 2 Executive Campus, Suite 400, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002.
When you contact us, just tell us what’s going on. If you have a news tip, we’ll check it out. If you have an upcoming event, we’ll get it into our calendar section (two weeks’ notice, please) and send a photographer to take a picture, if possible.
Sometimes, though, we won’t have a photographer or reporter available.
In that case – and for calendar notices, too – here’s what you need to send us:
For a news release
Name of the event
Name of the group sponsoring the event
Date and time of the event
Location of the event
A telephone number or Web site the public can use to gather more information
Cost to attend the event
Your name and contact information (not for publication, but just in case we have a question)
A paragraph or two about the event itself.
What is going to happen or what has happened? Why is it important? Etc.
And be sure to spell the names right or risk the wrath of your friends and co-workers.
We accept electronic photos via e-mail in the jpg format. If you own a digital camera, you likely already know how to send them to us via e-mail. Photos need to be high
resolution and include a detailed caption, including the names of everyone pictured.
If you have any questions about how to get your news or photo into The Sun, just give us a call at (856) 779-3800. We’ll be happy to help.
We want The Sun to be your newspaper. Tell us what’s important to you. Send us your news and photos. We’ll take it from there.
