MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDING EDITORS

 

The Inmacordista News-Magazine was launched in February 2007 as High School Class 1982’s Batch Legacy & Endowment to IHMC and to the Alumni Community.  From the conception to its final print, HS Class 1982 took it upon themselves to fund this project thru personal contributions and solicitations by means of ad placements.

Our purpose in publishing the news-magazine is to provide the alumni community a medium to connect and re-connect with their alma mater and classmates making it possible for all Inmacordistas to come together and do work that will continue to inspire, contribute to the community and to be thoughtful and responsible citizens as we remain focused on fulfilling our roles as servants to the poor.
  

HS Class 1982, thru its Founding Editors, has conferred to IHMCAA the entire concept of the Inmacordista News-Magazine as this will officially be a great source to generate funds thru ad placements in order to support the projects of the Alumni Association while we continue to administer the Editorial & Publishing Group.

Our fervent appeal is for all alumni not only protect the integrity of the Inmacordista News-Magazine but uphold the name INMACORDISTA, a brand, we shall always be proud of. 

We pass on to you the Implementing Guidelines that will serve as a reminder especially to those who aspire to be part of the Inmacordista News-Magazine.

Let it be known that the objectives of the news-magazine are: first and foremost, to showcase the projects and activities of the IHMC Alumni Association; and  feature alumni who have done commendable works and services to their profession, community and country that they may serve as inspiration to fellow Inmacordistas.  In no way should the Inmacordista News-Magazine be used for personal glorification.
 

Signed:  Founding Editors

 Ma. Rosalind B. Roxas / Ma. Caroline Roxas-delos Trinos / Ma. Cheryl L. Guirnalda

A.1  EDITORIAL GUIDELINES


FOR THE INMACORDISTA NEWS-MAGAZINE

The INMACORDISTA NEWS-MAGAZINE Editorial & Publishing Committee has developed suggested guidelines to help members submit their news and featured articles and photographs in a format that is most compatible with digital publishing requirements. Following the guidelines will help ensure accuracy and improve photo quality in the magazine. However, please note that these are just suggestions.   We will continue to accept articles in longhand or typewritten form. 

A.2  MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION

Materials for NEWS GALLERY, SNAPSHOTS, RANDOM THOUGHTS, IN MEMORIAM, PROUDLY INMACORDISTA Presents… may be submitted through the IHMCAA email address:  ihmc_alumni_assoc@yahoo.com
 
Or, submit single-spaced text in Word or a similar word processing format. Use only common fonts such as Times New Roman or Arial and avoid headers and footers.
If mailing your article, please send the text in PC format on a CD along with a printout.
Emailed articles will be accepted as text attachments following the guidelines mentioned above. Please AVOID typing your article directly into an email message, which results in many extra spaces and those pesky carets (> >).

Your articles may have to be edited for length and clarity prior to publication. Please furnish your name, address, phone/fax number and e-mail address with your submission.

A.3  PHOTOGRAPHER'S GUIDELINES

Photograph Submission: If mailing photographs, please indicate your name on the back of every photograph you submit. It is best if you fill out a label and attach it to the back of the photograph. If you use ink be sure it is smear-proof (not ballpoint) and dries thoroughly.

Furnish photographer's credits and caption information. Each caption should explain who, what, when, where and other appropriate information.

Please avoid using paperclips on photos.

Photos in black and white, sepia, or colored are acceptable. Digital photos should be taken at the camera's highest resolution setting. Many digital cameras take photos at a default resolution that may look great on your computer screen but will be fuzzy in print.

Manually set your camera resolution to "Fine" or "Best Quality" (check your manual for specific settings).

If you are scanning a photo, the setting should be at 300 dpi. If the photo is very small, please enlarge to 200 percent and scan at 600 dpi. We will adjust photos for color and crop for size, as needed, for publication.

Do not submit photos copied from a newspaper, magazines or books or are reproduced on a copier. They will not work in the magazine as they produce a blotchy pattern when published due to the dot system used in the printing process.

Please DO NOT INSERT your photo into a text document. If you send the photo(s) by email, be sure to send the photo as a separate attachment in Jpeg Format and rename the photo to identify it with the article. If you are submitting more than 8 photos, please send the photos in ZIP FILE or on a CD or DVD.

Advertisers and the Business Side

We enter into sponsorship agreements to further the Inmacordista News-Magazine objectives.

We see to it that we tap sponsors that enhance our brand; appeal to a targeted readership; generate funds thru advertising revenue that will ensure high visibility for Inmacordista News-Magazine.

1. The Alumni Association and the Editorial & Publishing Committee treat advertisers as fairly and openly as they treat their readers.  The relationship between US and advertisers rests on the understanding that news and advertising are separate.

2.  The Editorial and the Publishing Groups may properly confer on the layout and placement of ad materials. The groups may also work together in designing and lay-outing to make sure that the result is viable both journalistically and economically.

3. Advertising and "advertorials" (paid advertisements) must not resemble news content.

Raising Funds thru Solicitation of Ad Placement

The IHMC Alumni Association is solely dependent on ad placement solicitations to cover the printing cost of the Inmacordista News-Magazine thus,

1. The Publishing Group is tasked to solicit ad placements to cover the cost of printing of the news-magazine. Products generated thru exchange-deals in exchange of ad placements are accepted provided these products are solicited ONLY for the following official IHMCAA Events & Projects:  Medical & Dental and Feeding Program, Out-reach Programs, Operation: Shoebox and the Grand Annual Alumni Homecoming.

2.  The News-Magazine is a means to raise funds particularly for the Batch (Silver Jubilarians) hosting the Annual Homecoming.

2.1  A Fifty Percent (50%) Solicitation Fee is paid to the Association for each Ad solicited (The total printed magazines is equally divided between IHMCAA and the Batch Host)

2.2  Alternatively, the batch host (Silver Jubilarians) can shoulder the entire cost of the printing.  In which case only 10% solicitation fee will be due IHMCAA and twenty five percent of the total printed magazines.

Co-Jubilarians are entitled to 2 FREE full pages

Additional Full Page costs P 5,000.00

(Magazine & Website) Advertising & News Gatherings NO-NOs 

1.  Much as we encourage solicitation of ad placements to fund the Magazine and Website, we suggest that all staff members observe self-regulation and self-censorship in soliciting and accepting ad placements.

Much more, refrain from publishing ad materials (e.g. Liquor, Cigarettes, any form of endorsements on the subject of  birth control, gambling, etc.) and featuring offensive stories with no redeeming values that are in contrast to the teachings and core values of IHMC and IHMCAA and thrust of the Inmacordista News-Magazine and IHMCAA Website.

2.  Alumni submitting stories passing them as news but in reality are stories meant to glorify themselves and for personal gains and/or advertisements disguising as “advertorials” ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE. (e.g. Those who intend to run for public office)

RULE OF THUMB:  The Editorial Team is tasked to do the research, seek and gather news-worthy materials (supported with written facts) that will cater to our readers.

Always check on the motives of the alumni submitting news stories for inclusion in the news-magazine.

 

ABOUT THE IHMCAA WEBSITE

The IHMCAA Website aims to increase the participation of alumni in getting involved with various activities and projects of the Association and of IHMC.

The IHMCAA deemed it necessary to maximize the usage of the official website by way of providing advertising spaces in order to generate funds for the Association.

We encourage all alumni, who have their own businesses or products to sell or promote, to take advantage of these advertising spaces that will create a direct link to other alumni who can be potential customers.  Moreover, extending special privileges to fellow Inmacordistas who will patronize their products and services can be an incentive.
