What kinds of programs or events does Pique
We enter into sponsorship
agreements to further the newspaper’s
objectives. Each request is considered on its
own merit. However, we typically look for events
or programs that enhance our brand; appeal
to a targeted readership; generate advertising
revenue; offer print media exclusivity and
ensure high visibility for Pique Newsmagazine.
Our sponsorship budget
is determined on an annual basis and is reviewed
quarterly. For your event to be considered
you should submit your request a minimum
of 3 months in advance. Proposals received
in a shorter time frame are unlikely to be
assessed or supported to the maximum extent.
The level of sponsorship granted will depend on your advertising budget and the extent of exposure and opportunity for Pique Newsmagazine.
We do our best to provide as much support to the community as possible and regret that we are unable to fulfill all the requests received. Every request will be reviewed for consideration.
A sponsorship request form will be required prior to a sponsorship request being evaluated. Click here to complete form.
The decision by Pique Newsmagazine to provide sponsorship will not necessarily guarantee editorial coverage.
Previous involvement from Pique Newsmagazine as sponsor/supporter does not automatically guarantee support for an application. However, Pique Newsmagazine will consider multi-year agreements.
Sponsored ads will
be scheduled once camera-ready copy is in
hand. Deadline is Tuesday at noon for that
