Schedules and Deadlines:

If an advertiser is unsure if media files will be approved, it is recommended that the files be submitted before the 15th for review to allow plenty of time to finalize and make website ready.

File Requirements:

  1. All files must be delivered in a .jpg format. 
  2. File Names for images must not include any of the following:
    • Key adblock words such as ‘banner’, ‘ad’, ‘advertising’
    • File sizes such as ‘728×90’
  3. Any image/logo that is on a white background must include a 1pix size border to distinguish the ad frame from the surrounding website page.

EmComm Brief reserves the right to adjust the file name for optimizing visibility of your ad on our site.

EmComm Brief works with its industry partners to providing advertising space in the following locations within our website:
