    Digital specifications

    For production enquiries, please email help@educationhq.com with your six-digit ad ID and your company's name.

    General notes

    Compatibility

    PNG is the preferred file format for digital artwork. We use Campaign Monitor for email campaigns and Google DoubleClick for website campaigns, so supplied artwork should adhere to these platforms' standards.

    Email clients inconsistently support animated GIF files, so we do not accept this file type for any EducationWeek campaigns. We will only accept PNG or JPG files.

    Colour

    All colour assets should be set as RGB.

    Flash

    Flash is not recommended for advertising on EducationHQ. If supplied, the maximum animation length is 30 seconds, while the maximum frame rate is 24 fps.


    Digital deadlines

    Individual deadlines will apply to your specific deadline, so please contact us for your individual deadline. Our general deadlines are below.
