SPORTS COPY

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

We wel­come your sports copy but we have a par­tic­u­lar news­pa­per style when writ­ing sports copy.

Here are some help­ful point­ers:

Date: April 9, 2008, (not 9th April or 9 April)

Cap­i­tal let­ters: Only for proper noun - John Brown and South Waikato News but no caps for chair­man, sec­ond division. Do not use all cap­i­tals. No un­der­lin­ing. Keep dashes to a min­i­mum. The cleaner your sports copy is when it is emailed through to the News, the more chance it has of be­ing ac­cu­rate.

Make sure your com­ments or re­port­ing does not of­fend and keep to the facts.

Do not put in per­sonal com­ments or use nick­names.

Pho­tos are al­ways wel­come but they need to be large for­mat jpg to en­sure good re­pro­duc­tion and, if you send a photo, make sure you also send a cap­tion so we know who the peo­ple are.

Let us know about events well ahead – call and tell us or send an email.
