Public Notice Ads
The INA has released a series of public service ads for members to run in their newspapers, promoting public notices in newspapers and the iowanotices.org website!
By running these ads, you can help your readers realize the importance of public notices and help make the public aware that Iowa newspapers have taken the initiative to develop a website allowing everyone to view notices of public interest archived for easy reference. There is no cost to access the information and local governments have not been charged any fees to have their notices posted.
The ads are available in several sizes and members are asked to use them to fill space when available.
There are two versions of each ad available. One version includes the INA's logo, the other version can be customized with your newspaper's logo.
If you have any questions about these ads, please contact INA Communications Director Cicely Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-422-9077.

News Media Alliance Ads
News Media Alliance has also created promotional advertisements highlighting the importance of keeping public notices in newspapers and made them available to all Iowa newspapers, including those who are not Alliance members.
Paul J. Boyle, Alliance senior vice president for public policy, encourages newspapers “to run these advertisements in your newspaper over time to help educate the public.” The ads, available in full-page and quarter-page sizes, may be run as is, or with a logo added.
Artwork used in the ads is available separately, for use in making different sizes as needed. The ads are available below or through this address: https://www.newsmediaalliance.org/research_tools/public-notice-ad/?gatval Although the landing page looks like a member log-in, access is not restricted. The only information required to log in and download the ads is an email address. There is no charge for access or for use of the ads.
