COPY

The Club appreciates receiving copy of your published work from the event, in particular magazine and newspaper coverage, as well as photographs. This will help you to retain your media accreditation with the VSCC. If you think it is unlikely that the Club is on the mailing list for the publication you are contributing to please send a copy direct to Rob Smee.

The easiest way to send the photographs you are happy to share with the Club is via WeTransfer. The photographs you send are stored in the Club’s digital archive and maybe used for VSCC promotional activities and wherever possible will always be accredited with our thanks. If you could watermark any photographs with the photographer’s credit that would be very much appreciated. The watermark should ideally be of a small typesetting (Gill Sans font) positioned to the bottom right hand corner of the photo. Please email these to info@vscc.co.uk and also vscc.editor@gmail.com, Editor of the Club’s quarterly
Bulletin magazine.

If you have any queries please contact the team at The Old Post Office on 01608 644777.
