A newspaper runs on photos. Photos anchor a page and draw readers to the stories on press releases on the page. Make sure your photos are bigger than 1 megabyte at least. Small photos may look OK on your computer screen but are too small for us to print.

• Press releases are published as a free service for our community.

• Press releases must be written in complete sentences, listing the who, what, when and where of the event. Include a brief biography, such as for a featured speaker; and/or the history or mission statement of an event or organization, such as for an annual event or a nonprofit organization.

• For fundraisers, please indicate what or whom the proceeds benefit. List the full, formal title of individuals referred to or quoted in the release.

• Press releases must include the event, location, including street address, time and a contact phone number for publication. Releases without this information will not be published.

• Submitted photos should properly identify the photographer, if applicable, and all the individuals in the photo. Double check names to avoid spelling errors.

• Send photos that are huge, as large as they appear fresh of your camera. If you download photos from a website, they are likely too small for us to use. If the photo on screen is smaller than your hand, it's too small.

• The best digital format is a jpg, jpeg or gif file. We cannot guarantee that submitted photographs will be returned.

• Deadline for the Wednesday issue is Friday at 5 p.m.

• Deadline for the Friday issue is Monday at 5 p.m.
