How to Submit Text and Photos
Please submit any and all text as a part of the e‐mail or as
a Microsoft Word ﬁle attachment. Please submit any photo or
photos as individual attachments in tiﬀ or jpg formats. Do not
embed photos in Microsoft Word ﬁles.
For photos to be used, we require either large original ﬁles
or print size photos at 300 dpi (dots per inch). We can convert
large 72 dpi submissions into the required 300 dpi. This process
shrinks the size of the original submission. We cannot use pho‐
tos taken on cell phones. For photos to be published, they must
be in focus, of print quality, and wide enough to ﬁll the width
of the column layout.
Please include the names and titles of each person shown
in any photos. Please list names from left to right or refer to
those shown as being above left or right. For group photos
please list names from left to right, beginning with the front row
and working to the back. Do not list the Section oﬃcer ﬁrst un‐
less he or she is photographed on the left with guest speakers
on the right.
All submissions should be e‐mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please use the oﬃcial name of the Section as approved by the
AACE Board when the Section's charter was approved. Never
refer to the Section as a chapter.
