News Items: Submission of items of general interest to Woodford Sun readers is encouraged; however, it almost always pays to be brief. Submitted news items are subject to editing for brevity, clarity, spelling, punctuation and grammar. When composing news items, keep in mind the five "W"s: Who, What, When, Where and Why. Always include a contact name and telephone number in case we have questions about your submission. Submission of news items does not guarantee their publication, but we will make every effort to publish items that relate to Woodford County or its people.
Photographs: We accept photographs from the community for publication. We publish these photographs as we have space for them, and the submission of a photo does not guarantee its publication. In most cases, photos of posed large groups are not as interesting visually as those with fewer people doing things, such as students working on a project. Except where impractical, photo information should include the first and last names of all the people in the picture, including teachers and/or other adults (Mrs. Smith or John's grandmother are not acceptable identifications); a description of the activity and where it took place. Always list names in the following order: left to right, front row to back row. Photos should be well-lit and in focus. Color photos are acceptable. Digital photos printed on plain paper do not reproduce well; those who wish to submit digital photos should do so either by e-mail to email@example.com, or by bringing them to our offices on a flash drive or CD ROM/DVD. We do not have the equipment or software to read every camera card or download directly from digital cameras.
Electronic submissions: Both news items and digital photographs may be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include contact names and numbers as well as photo information in the body of the e-mail message. Please do not embed digital images in MS Word or other word processing document. Send images and text attached as separate files, preferably in jpeg format.
The Sun reserves the right to reject any submission for any reason we deem appropriate. All submissions must be accompanied by a contact name and daytime telephone number.
Copy Deadlines: All regular weekly or periodic columns, including Extension Service, Library, and other regular columns, must be reach The Sun by Friday of each week, as early in the day as possible. Any lengthy announcements, such as upcoming festivals or special events, must also be in by Friday.
All wedding and engagement announcements and pictures, social items, club and church notices, letters to the editor, and brief meeting notices must be in our office by noon Monday of each week. Community calendar items must be in by 4 p.m. Monday.
