Tips on submitting press releases
Email is the best way to share your news with us. Before you hit send, read these tips to make sure you send the complete information to the right person.
Be specific in your subject line
Our reporters often get hundreds of emails each day, so be sure your subject line is clear. If your subject line looks like spam or something without a tie to Maine, there’s a chance your message may be deleted before it’s ever opened.
Include the four Ws
It seems simple, but it’s surprising how often one of these crucial pieces of information is left out of news releases. Be sure to give the who, what, when and where of your event or accomplishment. If you’re promoting an event, please include the ticket price or state clearly that it’s free.
List contact information
Our reporters work on tight deadlines, which means they may have only a few hours to contact you between when they are assigned a story and when they need to file it. In addition to your email and web address, be sure to include a cell phone or other phone number where you can be reached during the day.
Do not send your news as a Word document or PDF
We prefer that you copy and paste your message into the body of your email. This ensures your information can be quickly and easily read. Word documents and PDFs can often be difficult, and sometimes impossible, to open. Attach hi-res photos If you have photos to illustrate your news, be sure to attach them (rather than wait for a reporter to request them). Photos should be JPGs and need to be sized no smaller than 200 dpi.
Include a description of the artist or act
When sending information about an upcoming concert, dance performance, art show or other event, be sure to include a line or two describing the artist or performer. This can be as simple as mentioning the genre of the music or the style of art. A short bio is also helpful.
Send your news in advance
To be included in calendar listings, be sure to send your information at least two weeks in advance of the event. If you can, send it three weeks in advance, as events are entered into our calendar on a first-come, first-served basis.

*We do not accept submissions over the phone.
We accept obituaries from funeral homes, family members and friends. However, those submitted by non-funeral directors MUST be verified by a death certificate, or by a funeral home or cremation service. When submitting, please provide your name, telephone number and address, as well as a death certificate or contact information for the funeral home or cremation service handling the arrangements. All information must be provided in order to continue with publication.
Charges for obituaries will be provided after submission and review by our staff. Out-of-state funeral homes and private party submissions will require credit card payment before the obituary will be printed.
Obituaries run in all Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram editions. A featured obituary passage is chosen each day at no extra charge. This will run in addition to the paid obituary and will be selected and written by our editorial staff.
“Services and Calling Hours” are provided at no charge, whether or not an obituary is purchased.
Hours of operation are:
Monday – Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. (Deadline: 4 p.m.)
Everything, including payment, must be received by 5 p.m. daily for the next day’s publication.
