Frequently Asked Questions
How do I submit a press release?
It’s easy (and free)!

Wondering how to get published on Start by sending us a press release with this information:

1. Who, what, when, where, why and how much.So if you’re having an event, tell us who you are, what the event is
about, the days and times it will be held, the name and street address
of the venue, an admission price and a phone number the public can call
for information, tickets, etc.

2. Your contact information: e-mail addresses and phone numbers, in case we have questions for you.

3. Good photosat a high resolution (300 DPI) and a decent size, like 4 x 6 or 5 x 7.
Along with photos, please include the names/titles of people in the
photos and who should be credited for the photos.  

Now here’s the important part: We need information EARLY—as early possible. We can take information up to two weeks before the event. Note: There is no such thing as sending information too early. 

We’re interested in hearing about film, video, print, fashion, theater and runway make-up work and projects. We’re also interested in hearing about new make-up products and artists doing interesting things. We can’t promise we’ll do a story, but we promise to read what you send us and give it careful consideration.
