Covid-19 delays Business & Community Guides release

Covid-19 delays business & community guides release

At this time of year, annual business & community guides would start to appear across the state, but 2020 has proven to be anything but a normal year.

As with a lot of events, publications and even day-to-day life, COVID-19 has put a spanner in the works.

We pride ourselves on being able to present you with the most relevant and up-to-date information as possible, so in order to do that, we have decided to delay the release of the guides.

An added feature of this year's guides will be the option for businesses to include editorial with their advertisements. We think this is the perfect way for businesses to reconnect with their customers after the current restrictions have hampered everyone. For more details about the special editorial offers, contact your local sales manager or sales representative.

As always, we encourage everyone to submit photos of their region for the front cover of the guides. We love seeing the photos that come in from around the state, even though it can make choosing the cover shot hard.

It does not matter if you are a professional photographer or just love to snap a few shots, all we want is to see your region through your eyes. To be considered for the front page we require high-resolution photos (5500 x 3800 pixels). Simply send them to belinda.stevens@austcommunitymedia.com.au with your name and where the photos were taken.

While we do our best to update the guides every year, we love you helping out and providing us with amendments and new listings. To make it easier for you, we have constructed an online form that is available all year round to fill out. The form can be found at the bottom of this story or on the website under the COMMUNITY | SEND US YOUR NEWS tabs.

This year's Lower Eyre Peninsula guide will be expanded to cover all of the Eyre Peninsula and the West Coast, making it the biggest and most comprehensive guide in the area. We encourage everyone in the expanded area to submit their details to ensure inclusion in the guide.
