Memory Layne writes-

Hey Joey, wanted to tell you that in addition to our costume party/
piano bar night on October 30th, we are having a Halloween themed  
dinner hour for families who come in to eat on Halloween before or  
after trick or treating on Sunday, Halloween night,  October 31st.  
Who wants to cook on Halloween? We’ll have goodie bags for kids and a  
special something for the adults and DownTown Clownz will be there  
from 4:30-6:30 making up balloons. Bring your little ones down if you  
get a chance. Attached are the two fliers if you have a chance to post  
them. (Rosie is the ghost…we’re still learning about her, as we get  
to know her…)
Best, Memory

The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce is looking for fabulous photography to include in its upcoming promotional materials—the 2011 CAPE ANN GUIDE magazine, and the 2011 CAPE ANN VISITORS MAP brochure, including cover and interior artwork. All photographers will receive photo credit for their art.

The artwork that is used for the cover of the magazine will need to be a bleed that trims to 8-1/8” wide x 10-7/8” high.  The upper left quarter will need to be able to have the Cape Ann logo placed over it.   (Please see the cover of the 2010 CAPE ANN GUIDE found at http://www.capeannvacations.com/ to see how the logo will be placed.)

Artwork that is used internally in the magazine will range in size from about 2×4 inches to two-page spreads (bleed, trim to 16-1/2” wide x 10-7/8” high).

The minimum resolution for all photography is 300 ppi.  We can accept JPG, TIF, or any other standard file format. 

We need this photography as soon as possible.

Sample art can be submitted to info@capeannchamber.com.  Please provide high resolution photos so that our designer can see your art at its best, and zip it so that our spam filter doesn’t try to keep us safe from your photos.  Indicate CAPE ANN GUIDE photos in your subject line.  You may also send us a CD or DVD with images to Tracy Arabian’s attention at the address below.  We can also review images on a website—simply send us the web address.  Make sure to include photo credit information.
