How to submit a calendar item, church or community notice?

This works the same as the submission guidelines for submitting a story.

First, use the "Contact Us" button at the top of any page to tell the editor what you want to do. If all you have is an announcement or calendar item, without any artwork, just fill in your announcement or calendar submission and hit "send." You MUST include a start and end time, as well as a start and end date. Otherwise, your announcement will not be posted.

The editor will approve or disapprove of your submission, and then staff will post it. If you need to accompany your announcement with art or a photo, send your submission to

If you e-mail the site, do NOT send PDF documents to accompany your announcement. Send either Rich Text- or Microsoft Word-formatted documents for your announcement. OpenOffice documents are also acceptable.

Note: If all you have is a simple announcement, you can just use the "Contact Us" form, hit "send", and that'll be fine.

Final note: When is an announcement not an announcement?

Answer: When it's an ad. Don't send an ad that is disguised as an "announcement" or "calendar item". It won't be posted. Citrus-Daily is not a charity for businesses too cheap to buy an ad. But If you need to take out an ad, do so by using the "Contact Us" button at the top of any page.

Our philosophy on ads is this: If you pay for Tampa TV commercial time and newspaper print space, you can certainly buy some space online here, too.
