Press Release Submission Guidelines
Please read this page before you submit your PR to our site.
Your news release must be related to children. If your news is not related to children it will be refused.
Headline - We will not publish any submission that is ALL upper case characters. The headline and body of your press release should be in the proper case.
Summary - The summary has a word count limit of 22 words. Your summary should expand on your headline or be a brief synopsis of what your PR entails.
Grammatical Errors - Your PR MUST have proper English, spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization and sentence structure. Even the best writers and editors make grammatical errors and typos. Be sure to proof read your press release before submission and also use a spellchecker to help catch those that the eyes usually miss.
Content - We will reject any submission for lack of content. When creating your press release, it should answer the questions who, what, where, when, why and how to be sure that your press release is complete and leaves no questions unanswered for the reader.
Advertisement -Your PR should not be an ad for your company, product or service. Your release should be a news announcement. Do not write your PR like an advertisement. Any submission that reads like an advertisement for a product or service will be rejected immediately. To help you get your submission approved, a KidZNewswire editor will contact you and give you reasons why your submission was rejected and offer suggestions.
