The Winchelsea Star welcomes advertising submissions from any organisation or individual, subject to editorial approval and the normal legal and moral restrictions/standards. Community and non-profit events and information bulletins are published at no charge, but regular/ongoing adverts may incur a charge.
Note that normally adverts can be printed in colour only on the inside-front and inside-back pages, all other locations are black and white. Please contact The Star's Advertising Manager to discuss your particular requirements though, in particular for the larger sized ads, as we are open to negotiation and on occasion run additional special colour sections.
All subscribers receiving The Winchelsea Star by email receive a full-colour publication, so it is worth submitting a colour ad even if it will be printed in black-and-white - but please check that your ad will look OK in colour and black-and-white, sometimes the latter makes an ad harder to read.
Adverts should be provided in image format (JPG/JPEG preferred) or as PDF and need to be of a suitable quality and size. We recommend supplying images at a minimum 300dpi at 100% scaling.
Adverts can be designed on your behalf for an hourly charge, please get in touch with the Advertising Manager for more details.
Advertising cats and dogs for sale. Victorian Domestic Animals Act 1994 states that all dogs and cats be microchipped before being given away or sold. Each animal advertised must contain a unique microchip number or the business registered number and council from where it is registered.
Motor advertisers. Private vendors of motor cars advertised for sale must include the price of the vehicle and either a registration number of the vehicle (if registered) or the engine number (if unregistered).
Lost & Found advertisements are published free. Simply provide the details for publishing.
