RE: Reminder: Send Photos and Write Up on Hurricane Recovery Efforts
The League is planning to run a special feature article and photo spread on your hurricane recovery efforts in the January issue of New Jersey Municipalities, the League magazine. We first requested information on your recovery efforts on November 6. We thought we’d send a reminder, in case some of you missed the first letter on this.
We plan to feature photos and information from throughout the state as part of a single article. We are relying on you or your designee to send us photos and information for the article. Because the space is limited, we cannot guarantee that your photos or all of your information will be included. We also apologize in advance for making this request at what we know is already a busy time. If you are too inundated with the recovery, we understand that you will need to disregard this request. The deadline for the photos, captions and write-up is November 26.
Please send us a short description (300 to 600 words) about the storm’s impact and your towns’ recovery efforts. Include information about the nature and scope of the devastation, donations and volunteerism, the storm’s effect on local government and town hall, and special acts of heroism.
Also send us one to three photos that illustrate your description (photos of the effects of the hurricane and/or rescues, shelters, donations or repair efforts, etc.). We are especially looking for photos that include municipal officials or demonstrate the efforts of municipal government. If possible, please provide complete caption information (including the names and titles of the people pictured and the date, location and significance of photo).
The photos must be high resolution. That means they must be at least 100kb in size (or 300dpi and at least 3” X 4”).
Please e-mail your high resolution photos (no more than three), captions and write-up (no more than 600 words) to email@example.com by November 26. We look forward to whatever you can send us. We welcome submissions after that deadline, which may be included in future coverage of this storm and recovery.
And, as always, your article submissions – whether on disaster response or other initiatives that would be of interest to New Jersey’s municipal officials—will be considered for future issues of the League’s magazine. For the magazine’s submission guidelines, visit www.njslom.com and click on New Jersey Municipalities Magazine.
Very truly yours,
