The Alternative Guides are in a full colour broadsheet format, unfolded size 690mm x 500mm (slightly smaller than A1).
The Website is a reflection of the Printed Alternative Guides, so advertisers in the printed guides are automatically included on the website.
The same deadlines therefore apply to printed and web versions.

All that is needed is the wording that you require and a logo or
suitable picture from a letterhead or business card.
Wording can be posted to the address below or emailed as a Word file - or just as text in an email.
Your advertisement is then produced and a proof sent for your approval before publication.
If you wish to produce your own advertisement please make sure that
it is the exact
size and of a suitable quality and send it as an uncompressed JPEG
or TIFF file.
We are unable to accept programme files like Publisher, Quark, Corel etc.
However, listings need to be of Specific, Dated Events in the geographical area covered by the Alternative Guide.
*** Please note: Specific, Dated Events... i.e. a meeting, a course, a workshop, an open day..
*** saying 'I'm a massage therapist and I'm available every Monday afternoon' needs a paid box advertisement.
In the printed guide there is often not enough room to include
all the listings submitted.
Advertisers always get their events listed in the printed guide and then as many others as possible are included.
All listings are normally included on the website though..
