Submitting Copy

Layout requirements for Lapido Media

Copy to by deadlines as set out in the document ‘Pitching Guidelines V.3’.


1) Headline suggestion in bold [We reserve the final edit]


[Blurb] This bit picks out something else from the story to provoke interest and keep them reading down. [Ditto]

Picture for the home page.


2) Headline repeated


[Caption]  Caption should be a short phrase from the story, colon, person’s name.  Photo: Credit

Body of story, spaced at 1.5lines.



Fact box at end if required.


Please add hyperlinks into the copy as you go.  Only hyperlink names or links to reports, not to others’ versions of the news stories to substantiate your own, as this usually looks – and is – lazy, unless you gloss it first.
