Guidelines for sending examples of your work

Please email us examples of your project's work, using the guidelines below. You should send the email to magicmedia@unicef.org. If you are unable to email us examples, and would like to find out about sending them by post, please email magicmedia@unicef.org and we will be happy to advise. If you need any other help with sending in examples, please feel free to email us at that address.

Images

Images can be sent electronically in most formats, but high-quality, high-resolution JPEGs or TIFFs are preferred. Try to include some images of project members at work (or play). We can also scan prints and transparencies although we prefer to receive files electronically.

Video

Video clips on the MAGIC site are displayed in Real Player format (see Useful links) but we can also receive your clips electronically as QuickTime, Windows Media Player, AVI and most other common formats, by email or on CD. We also accept video on VHS cassette although we prefer to receive files electronically. Try to avoid sending us clips of more than one minute's duration. If your clip is longer please send us details of a suggested shorter portion that we can include.

Audio

Audio clips on the MAGIC site are played in Real Player format but we can also receive your clips electronically as QuickTime, Windows Media Player, MPEG and most other common formats. We also accept clips on CD (audio CD or CD-R), MiniDisc and standard cassette although MiniDisc and cassette are less preferred. Try to avoid sending us clips of more than five minute's duration. If your clip is longer please send us details of a suggested shorter portion that we can include.

PDFs

PDFs – or portable document files – are displayed using Adobe Acrobat software (see Useful links) and are a good way of including a poster or leaflet on the website without the design altering. If your software allows, you should save for Acrobat 4 or earlier, optimise for screen rather than print (to avoid creating a huge file) and embed all fonts (so the correct typefaces appear at the user's end).

Captions and credits

Please include text for captions and credits and be sure that the photographer or creator of the work consents to it appearing on the MAGIC website.
