Community Sponsorships








Sponsorship Criteria


Sponsorship and Partnership agreements are intended to cultivate our relationship with a large number of readers and potential readers with the intent to increase circulation. These events offer opportunities for the Naples Daily News to work in partnership with event organizers through advertising, public relations, media placement, point-of-purchase and media cross-promotion to help stimulate the readership and subscription of the newspaper. Provide positive visibility for the Naples Daily News newspapers, not compromise the newspaper’s journalistic integrity or independence.


For the Naples Daily News to consider a sponsorship or partnership agreement, the event or program must make a difference in the communities we serve, have the potential to increase readership, circulation and/or advertising revenue, reach the Naples Daily News target market, not discriminate with regard to race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference or age.


A request for a Sponsorship or Partnership Agreement requires the following:



Naples Daily News will be the sole newspaper/print partner (except The News-Press) unless otherwise approved by the Marketing Director.



As a sponsor, the Naples Daily News will be recognized on all promotional materials, including but not limited to, posters, fliers, programs, tickets, signage, print and broadcast advertising, press releases and all marketing materials. The appropriate logo representing the Naples Daily News logo should be used whenever possible. The logo cannot be altered in any way and the size of the logo must be in proportion to the size of the advertisement materials.


Booth Space & Signage
