What banners do we offer?

Background Tower Banners / Website Skin

Our premiere banner option is the background skin/tower ads. Ideal for two tower ads each side of the website content, these spaces can stretch to the edge of the browser window if desired. (Note: Not available on the mobile version of our site.)

Background Tower Ad Example

Header Banner (960 x 180px)

This attention grabbing banner appears below the navigation on every page of our website.

Header 960 Ad Example

Sidebar Banner (300 x 300px)

Our most popular banner ad. We have two spaces available, which both sit at the top of the sidebar. The banners feature prominently on every page except the homepage.

Sidebar 300 Ad Example

Facebook Cover Image (851 x 315px)

If you have a campaign more suited to creating awareness on social media, our Facebook cover image space will reach this segment of our audience. We can supply a template for your design, if required.

How does it work?

All campaigns run on can be tailored to the advertiser’s objectives and can run for as long as necessary (with 1 week being the minimum). However, we do offer blocks at discounted prices the longer the ad is purchased for.

What formats and information do we need?

We support most formats including jpg, png, gif and animated gif. The maximum file size permitted will depend on the format, but as a guide banners should be no larger than 60kb. We can supply pre-defined templates for some of our banner options, if requested.

Artwork, along with the URL link, should be emailed to no later than 5 working days before the first day of the agreed advertising period.

All invoices are due upon receipt. Payment details will be listed on the supplied invoice (we accept Paypal or bank transfers). We regret that we cannot publish a banner before payment has been made.

How do we collaborate with festivals?

If you are a festival and would be interested in a media partnership with us, we are always open to collaborating in this way. Typically, we offer a ‘Featured Festival’ panel on our homepage or a sidebar banner in return for a space in your promotional materials (either print or web based). However, we are completely open to suggestions and negotiations here and we like to explore the best possible promotion for both parties.
