Submission Guidelines & Forms

The Herald-Chronicle regularly accepts and prints submitted stories, photos and information from correspondents and readers. To better facilitate this process, please follow the guidelines below that apply to your submission.

Photo Submission

All photos should be sent in at the highest resolution possible (200-300 dpi or better), in color and uncropped. When possible, digital photos are preferred. Printed photos may be bought in for scanning; mailed photos will be returned with a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

E-mail photos to ochcnews@gmail.com

Photos may also be mailed to:
The Osage County Herald-Chronicle
PO Box 266
Osage City, KS 66523

Photos should be taken with journalistic intent for the purpose of recording the event. Try to avoid posed or “snapshot” style pictures whenever possible. Please avoid writing or time stamps on photos — they will be cropped out or removed.

A few basic tips to taking better photos can be found here.

News Article Submission

The Herald-Chronicle accepts and prints community news events with relevance to Osage County and our nearby coverage areas.

Please submit as much information about the event as possible. Answer the who, what, where, when, why and how, and provide enough information for an outsider to understand. Please include a daytime phone number(s) of people who we can reach for clarification and additional information.
