How to Promote Your Scouting Events in SNAP Newspapers

1) visit www.snapnewspapers.com/locations to locate the closest location to your group/event.
2) once you identify the appropriate location(s), follow link on the right hand side to the website i.e. www.snapwhitby.com
3) Click on "submit your event tab" (top left black tab). You must complete all 3 sections of the online form, including an on site contact person for the event. Watch the "COVERAGE" box in the 2nd section of the form. You have 2 options - list in calendar and send photographer. You can select either or BOTH. Note Photographers will only attend local events with sufficient lead time. You also have the option to indicate the preferred time for the photographer's visit. Once you complete the form click preview to check your information and then once you are satisfied, click submit.
4) A SNAP event coordinator will contact you regarding photographer availability. In the event they are NOT available to attend, then arrange to have your own pictures taken and follow the guidelines below.
Submitting your own photos:
Please feel free to take some high res pictures at your event and they will work to get them in an upcoming edition. Photos will only be accepted if your event Ws previously registered (see above). If this is of interest, please be sure that:
� Photos are at least 1-2 MB in size
� You have included the names of those in the photos, as well as any necessary titles
� All of those in the photo have agreed to have their photo published both in print and online
� Content is submitted in a timely manner in order to meet edition deadlines (48 hours from the time of event is preferable)
This is completely FREE publicity for Scouting - let's endeavour to fully utilize this resource and show everyone what AWESOME experiences and accomplishments our youth have in Scouts Canada!
