Deadlines & Specifications

All advertorial copy and display ads need to be supplied by December 1st. We will be taking orders at DEMA with free delivery to divers in time for Christmas.

Dive Site Sponsorship: Our editorial team provides all content to offer the best authentic-looking page. You will need to supply up to 10 decent images for your chosen dive site (minimum 300DPI at 3-5Mb). 

Additionally, you will need to supply the Company name and URL. For spreads, you can provide an image and additional wording about your company. You may also drop the picture and have more text. We do not allow logos in place of the image as this detracts from the authentic editorial style.
