Heather McRea, editor of the
Orange County Register, is interested in stories and pictures on
events in the areas where its local weekly editions are circulated.
Photos and information should
be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line
“Community News”. Photos need to be sent as .jpg files, 170 dpi, and
10 to 12 inches wide. If your computer asks if you want to compress
or shrink the photos for faster e-mail, reply NO.
The people in any photos should
be identified from left to right. Full names are a must and ages,
cities, or schools are a plus.
Photos of minors must have
signed releases from parent or guardian, although the forms need not
be submitted to the paper. A mention that a signed release exists
will ease the editor’s mind and make the photo more likely to be
used. This release form is available on the District web page.
