Sponsored Article

Please submit a basic outline for the article, up to 4 JPG images & 2 outbound links. A grkids.com contributor will be available for a phone interview (approx. 15-20 minutes in length) to obtain more details. An article will be written on your behalf based on the information submitted here and the details discussed during the interview process. We try to keep our articles between 300-500 words, as we have found this works best for our readers. The article will be highlighted on the grkids.com homepage for one day, included in the grkids.com eNewsletter the following week and promoted on Facebook twice.

IMPORTANT Photograph/Image Requirements

  • Photos should be high resolution, JPG format.
  • You must use a Facebook LEGAL image. Check your image here: https://www.facebook.com/ads/tools/text_overlay (Images that don’t pass FB test will be replaced at the discretion of Grand Rapids Kids)
  • For the article header image, we use high resolution images without text that are sized 700×400 px.
  • Within the article, we prefer square photos sized 480×480 px (these look best for mobile and laptop users). If you cannot provide square photos, the best thing to do is submit high resolution files that we can size to our preferred specs.
  • **PLEASE NOTE: Sponsors are liable for the photos they submit. This means you must be the owner of the photo you share. If children are in your photographs, you must obtain parental/guardian permission before sharing their photo with us. Lastly, if you submit a photo that you did not take, you will need to send us written permission from the photographer.**

Review Article

Please submit a description of your business/event and a few words on your goals and expectations for the review. A grkids.com contributor will attend your function (complimentary admission provided) for up to two hours. During that time, pictures will be taken to be used in the article. The review article will be written on your behalf (typically between 300-500 words) based on their experience. However, we reserve the right to decline reviews for negative experiences. The article will be highlighted on the grkids.com homepage for one day, included in the grkids.com eNewsletter the following week, pinned to Pinterest (if applicable), and promoted on Facebook twice.
