The new policy on the front cover

The Shiba E-News front cover is limited to one time in a 12 month period by an individual advertiser or household. The advertiser is considered to be the individual /household that is paying for the cover and must be an owner of record on the dog. A dog with multiple owners may only be on the cover once in a 12 month period regardless of who pays for the advertising. An exception is granted for a dog that wins Best of Breed at the National Specialty that has already had a front cover in the previous 12 months. If the front cover has not been purchased two weeks prior to the E-News deadline, it will be open to anyone wishing to purchase it.

Policy Concerning Ads Created by Independant Designers or Advertisers

Addressing Ad Submission: Prior to ad submision or payment, the E-News editor must first be be contacted by all designers or advertisers. Ads will be submitted as useable files. Useable files are defined as an optimized PDF file that can be opened and used for set up in preparation for publication according to the following specs: Canvas size for inside pages to be 7.5 w X 10.05h. If a pre-edited photo is submitted for the front cover, the canvas size is to be 7w X 8.853h, which would include any text desired to be used. If any questions arise, or more information is needed, designers may contact the editor at
Ads not created by the E-News editor in need of correction, change, or useablity are the responsibility of the advertiser or designer. If an advertiser is using an independent designer, said designer is to provide a proof to the advertiser for approval prior to submitting the file to the editor.

Addressing unusable files: If unsable files are submitted, they will be returned. To avoid possibly missing the deadline, it is recommended that ads be created by independent designers or advertisers one week prior to the deadline. This should allow ample time should pre-approved files need corrections or changes in usablity.
Once the returned files are made accessible, they will be accepted for publication. If the deadline for submissions passes and said files are not re-submitted as usable files, they will not be published in the current magazine but will be published in a subsequent issue. If the advertiser chooses not to publish the ad in a subsequent issue, they must submit their request in writing within one week of the upcoming deadline. Upon receiving written notification that the advertiser chooses not to publish the ad, a refund will be issued.
Thank you.

Please note: We pay strict attention to copyright infringement policies. If someone designing an ad duplicates an image or font that resembles too closely to that of another commercial or private organization or individual, we reserve the right to refuse acceptance of such immages or fonts.
All ranked placements must disclose the source of such placements as coming from AKC, Canine Chronicle, UKC, FCI International dog shows or any other source.
