PNNA members and non-members alike are welcome to contribute
numismatically-related material for possible use on this site and in the PNNA's
quarterly newsletter, The Nor'Wester.
Please follow the following guidelines when you make your submission:
Send your text and
graphics in electronic form (e-mail with attachments if required) to
Eric Holcomb, PNNA editor and webmaster. All submissions
will be reviewed for possible use on this web site and in The Nor'wester
(unless you request only one of those options). The material submitted
may be subject to editing.
Do not attempt any
special formatting of your text and pictures unless you are trying to create a
special effect. Some types of formatting are not suitable for use on the
web (or may require conversion to a PDF file), and some file formats may not be readable by the PNNA webmaster. If
in doubt, send a small sample file first.
Preference will be
given to material that is consistent with the PNNA's mission of numismatic
education. Advertising material, including offers to buy or sell for your
personal collection, will not be accepted, except for paid advertising in
The Nor'wester. Business card size display ads of a general nature (i.e., not listing a
specific numismatic item or items) are available on the pnna.org
sponsors page for $10 annually to PNNA members.
material, you certify that you are the copyright owner of the material
(including photos), or that the owner has given you permission to submit the
material to the PNNA. You (or the owner) grant the PNNA an implicit
limited-use non-exclusive non-commercial royalty-free license to publish the material for
educational and informational purposes. You may revoke this license at
any time after 30 days, however you must notify the webmaster in writing or by
e-mail and allow up to 14 days for the material to be removed from the PNNA web
site. The copyright license with respect to material published in The
Nor'wester (including web versions) cannot be revoked after the newsletter is printed.
Any violations of copyright law will be taken seriously by the PNNA and may be
reported to the appropriate authorities. Please don't do it!
Photos of recognizable persons may require a
written and signed model release in addition to a copyright license.
Keep it as short as
reasonably possible - more people will read your story (and less editing will
be required) if it's short. As a suggestion, limit text to about two pages and pictures to no more than about 250
to 500 KB each. Please consult with the webmaster beforehand for longer
submissions, or if you require photo editing services. Also consult with the webmaster if you are interested in digital
photography services for items in your collection.
