News Submission Guidelines

Ensure the timely activation of your announcement by following the guidelines below.


  • We accept professional press releases / news announcements only.
  • A press release must be at least 250 words.
  • Spell check and grammar check your press release. Excessive errors will result in an immediate rejection.

Style Guide

  • Do not include "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE".
  • Do not repeat the headline in the body text.
  • Do not include your publicist information in the body text. Select it from the "News Source" dropdown list.
  • Hotlink all URLs. Non-hotlinked URLs will be removed.
  • Place all email addresses in the notification box (one address per line).
  • Italicize album titles and bold section headers. Learn how here.
  • Do not abbreviate.
  • You can hotlink a musician's name to their All About Jazz musician profile page by placing two curly braces around their name, like this: {{Christian McBride}}.

Optimization Tips

  • Keep the title brief and punchy. Try to include the artist's name first. Shorter titles will index higher on searches. For live performances, try "[Artist Name] at [Venue Name] on [Date]"
  • It's ok to append tour dates to a press release, but you benefit most by adding those events to the Jazz Near You calendar.
  • Select the city that applies under "Regional Information."
  • An accompanying image makes a big difference in the appearance of your announcement. Upload one.
