Newsletter Submission Criteria

The Mayor's Office of Film + Music distributes a weekly e-newsletter detailing information and news that are of interest to, or have an effect on, Seattle's film and music industries.

To maintain the quality of our newsletter, criteria for submissions are as follows:

  • Deadline to submit material is 3 p.m. every Wednesday. Information that is received after the deadline WILL NOT be included in that week's newsletter.
  • Submissions must inform the industries about unique opportunities; high-impact, far-reaching or major events; or wide-spread industry news.
  • Specific or smaller scale events can be submitted if they are open to everyone and/or are free to the public.
  • Events requiring attendees to be a member of a specific group will not be accepted.
  • The newsletter is not a way for you to promote your business.
  • All submissions should include:
    • Title
    • Website Link
    • Brief description of no more than 100 words
  • All event submissions should include:
    • Event Title
    • Event Date and Time
    • Event Location, including street address
    • Brief description of event
    • Name of organization hosting/sponsoring event
    • Contact information including name, phone number and e-mail
    • Website link

    Submissions without the above listed criteria will not be included. Unfortunately we are unable to publish every submission due to the space, fairness and timing demands. We do not post the same story more than once. Artwork and logos are used at our discretion. The Film + Music Office makes all final decisions about what content will be included in the newsletter and may edit or change submissions before including them.

    Please send an e-mail to with any questions concerning the criteria.
