*These are ideal sizes and not absolute requirements. We suggest all advertisements have a thin border for maximum impact.
Leaderboard / Banner / M. Rec / Tile / Overlay / Skyscraper:
While we do accept Flash files, we now strongly recommend against using them. This is because Google Chrome (which is our most popular browser) now pauses all flash animations by default and the user needs to click to unpause them, and Mozilla Firefox now blocks these adverts. We ask advertisers to convert existing Flash creatives into a self-contained HTML5 creative using Google Swiffy: https://developers.google.com/swiffy/convert/upload
To learn more about how to create an HTML5 creative read the materials click here.
If supplying Flash make sure that Flash (SWF) files are Flash 10.1 or lower and we recommend providing a jpg or Gif backup image for non flash-enabled browsers. If you provide flash or animated material, we suggest that you loop it, with an extended pause on the final call to action slide.
Email newsletter tile:
Email Newsletter M. Rec / Tile 300px x 250px (40KB ideal). While we can accept GIF and animated GIF files, we recommend using just a flat JPG file, as some email clients do not run the animated GIF files correctly.
Some email clients do not support cookies such as Outlook. If you intend to use a 3rd party adserver link tracking, then you will be required to use a tracking system without cookies such as the "Click Trackers" option within Google DCM (DoubleClick Campaign Manager). More information about this option is detailed here.
For each online advert we need a URL supplied for your advert to click to.
Side panels / Takeover panels / Skins:
A site takeover is an opportunity to theme panels on either side of a particular section of our website with an image that supports your existing banner, tile or skyscraper advertising. Because different users have different zoom settings and screen sizes, no guarantees can be made that all users will have the full imagery. The imagery for these panels should be non-critical information, ideally a pattern or colour, with no text.
Please deliver both the header and sleeves in one file(Complete wrap size is 2560x1600). Always supply the PSD and fonts.
Our target resolution for sleeves is 1920px width wise, which leaves 273px of safe zone. While the static portion of the wrap may extend to 2560px, Anything outside of the 1920/273px safe zone will be cut off for the majority of our users. Please note that we're unable to accept Flash files.

Other information needed
If you're providing the content please include:
If you choose us to write the story we need the following information:
Send all this to your account manager, who will get it to the appropriate editor.
It takes us approximately five working days to turn around a sponsored story writing project or just two days if the content is provided complete.
It is our policy that we provide:
Definition: Stakeholders are our readers, advertisers, employees and shareholders (including any parent companies) or any industry contact or special interest group we encounter.
We write sponsored and unsponsored reviews primarily on consumer technology.
Our reviews are a great way of receiving coverage and can include images, features, specifications, a description of the product in-use and more.
Techday endeavours to ensure the review process is fair and based on genuine testing.
For unsponsored reviews there is no guarantee we will review your product, and aside from loan agreements no correspondence will be entered into.
For sponsored reviews we agree to review your chosen product and will send you a draft version of the article before it goes live so you can suggest changes.
We consider reviews for a range of our brands, particularly FutureFive.
We do not review enterprise technology as we don't have the right environment or technical experience to fully test the more complex solutions. Our reviewers are average consumers and our readers are generally not technically focused.
We're unable to review small accessories like phone or device cases, as it's a challenge to find compatible devices and we may not have enough content for the desired story length.
We also do not do unsponsored reviews for mobile apps.
The product will be available to be sent back after two weeks. We can consider a shorter timeframe if need be.
Finalising the article and publishing it on online may take longer than the loan period.
Generally speaking, products under $500 of value will be kept by Techday and auctioned some three months after the publication of the review as a means of supplementing the review facility and the time spent on the piece. Our review o-ordinator will register
Our review co-ordinator will register all review products in our database.
Please do not send us an item for review if you have not confirmed with us prior.
