Submission Guidelines

Email to polynews@calpoly.edu (include "For Cal Poly Report" in the subject line). The deadline to submit items is 12:30 p.m. the Friday before publication. Submissions received after the deadline will be printed in the next available issue. Submissions may run a maximum of three times.

Note: ALL CAL POLY REPORT SUBMISSIONS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY APPROVAL FROM YOUR DIVISION’S DESIGNATED APPROVER (OR BE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY BY THE DESIGNATED APPROVER).

Text Format

Items should be 150 words or less. A pyramid format is followed, with the most important information first: the name of the event or guest; the time, day, date and location of the event; followed by a brief summary; and contact details, and/or a link for more information. Cal Poly Communications reserves the right to edit items for length, style, clarity and consistency.

Photos

Images should have visuals that are easily visible when sized down for the online newsletter. Text in a photo must be kept to a minimum. Do not include time, date or location in the image; those details will be included in the text and will be too small to read in an image in this format.

High-resolution photos are preferred. Low-resolution photos may be too grainy to be used.

The Communications Office will crop the image to fit the standard format, which is typically a variation of a 4x6 image. Images are most commonly sized to 300x200 or 200x300 (for headshots, in particular). Headshots should be cropped without too much extraneous background.
