Do you believe in informative communication that is totally suited to the tone and style of the magazine. If so, this formula will certainly enable you to achieve your goal!
Advertorials (or “Publireportages”) are advertisements in the form of a magazine article of which the concept, the tone of voice, and the layout are always adapted to the magazine in which they appear.
Rules for advertorials
Submitted advertorials must differ significantly from editorial pages. Create sufficient differences and keep to the following rules:
The ‘Publireportage’ logo will be added to all submitted advertorials.*
The ‘Publireportage’ logo will appear in the top centre of the single pages (font size 12 – arial), always in 100% black or negative on a black background. For double pages the logo will be placed on each spread or the right subsequent page, in the top centre.
Use of fonts
The fonts must always differ sufficiently from those of the magazine.
The models used for the advertorials are not allowed to have their face on the cover of the magazine.
Twice a year you can request a list of the most frequently used models from the art director of the magazine.
No references are to be made to the magazine, so make sure not to use the magazine’s name anywhere.
Do not address your reader directly as …reader.
Logo / product placement
Always use the advertisers logo and/or product placement
