Named “Magazine of the Year” by the National Magazine Awards in 2010, the magazine is the premier showcase of the people, places and events of our nation’s frontier.

    There is no publication like Up Here. It is the only magazine covering the entire North, and is pored over and prized by Northerners and Southerners alike. Twelve times annually it brings alive the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon, through vivid photography, hard-hitting reports and business news, live-the-experience travel features, and gripping stories of adventure and survival.

    Up Here’s focus may be Northern, but its reach is national—even global. Each issue is viewed by some 100,000 readers.

    It is the in-flight magazine for Canadian North and is in the seat pockets on all scheduled and charter flights, over 2,000 copies can be found in airports across the North, and over 1,000 are on Calm Air flights. It has a growing 10,000-person paid subscriber base and is available on more than 200 newsstands across Canada, including Chapters/Indigo and Shoppers Drug Mart. On average, 1,200 copies per issue are distributed to Premium lounges in airports across Canada and another 500 are distributed through VIA Rail lounges. In addition, it is mailed to medical and dental oces, hotels and motels, restaurants, visitor centres, schools, conferences, airlines, coee shops and businesses in all three territories. Up Here remains your trusted source to advertise your service or product.

    Each issue, we print and circulate up to 30,000 copies of Up Here magazine, the only Pan-Territorial CCAB Audited Magazine in the North.

  • UHM E D I A K I T 2 0 1 6 M E D I A K I T 2 0 1 6 M E D I A K I T 2 0 1 6 M E D I A K I TA good advertisement will have a clear message that you want to get across to your audience. Try to have your message communicate one thing that you want to sell. Try to avoid advertising more than one product or service in your message, as this can become unclear, cluttered, or confusing.

    TIPS FOR WRITING EFFECTIVE ADVERTISEMENTSEective advertising can get people interested in your business or service quickly and explain your product(s) or service(s) clearly. Keep this list of tips handy for writing eye-catching, persuasive ad copy (written content):

    • Make your ads relevant and memorable. • Find, or invent, a creative hook. • Write the way people think. • Before writing an ad, know why people buy your products or services. • Deliver the same message across all media. • Keep it simple; the consumer doesn’t have time for complex copy. • Deliver your message with clarity.

    PHOTOGRAPHY: PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARDIt is important when using photography in your ads that you try to provide professional high-quality imagery to make the most out of your ad and to make your product or service look its best. This can be achieved by using stock photography (online stock photo websites), hiring a professional photographer, or doing it yourself by using a quality camera, good lighting and knowledge of how the photo may appear in the ad. Also, try to ensure that products, vehicles, buildings and background in photos are as clean and tidy as possible. For image resolution information, please refer to the section on Technical Specifications.

    LAYOUT: KEEP IT SIMPLEThe layout of your ad is equally important to the writing and photography in communicating your message eectively. The information in your ad should follow a logical hierarchy that is easy to follow. Our design team is great at putting together eective advertisements and can help you get your message across to your target audience. We will send you a proof of the ad via e-mail and give you the opportunity to make any changes at that time before it gets published.

    2016 EFFECTIVE ADVERTISING GUIDELINES

  • UHM E D I A K I T 2 0 1 6 M E D I A K I T 2 0 1 6 M E D I A K I T 2 0 1 6 M E D I A K I TPHOTOGRAPHY:

    • Resolution should be 300 dpi. (Because your computer screen displays at ~72 dpi, this results in a photo onscreen that appears about 3-4 times larger than the image that will run in print.)

    • File sizes will usually be around 200-500KB for very small photos, or 2-20MB for a full page (these are estimates only, varies by photo).

    • Please send your images as: JPG, TIF, TIFF, or RAW files. • Try to ensure that vehicles, buildings and background in photos are clean if

    possible. Photo editing can remove some elements like power lines, but it may not be possible to clean up fingerprints.

    • Photos taken from websites are usually too low resolution for print publishing. If this is the only place photos are available, please remember that they will print about 1/4 the size they appear online (see inset photo in 72 dpi example).

    LOGO:

    • Logos should be in vector formats such as: EPS, AI, SVG or perhaps PDF.• If vector formats are not available, then a high resolution GIF, JPG. • Backgrounds should be white or transparent.• Logos taken from the internet are usually too small for print publishing.

    OTHER FORMATS:

    • Formats like Word, Powerpoint and Publisher are unreliable. Objects and fonts may change in both style and alignment. In addition, image resolutions are often reduced when included in these formats. Please send the images as attachments where possible. Should you be required to send files in this format, a PDF of your ad will be sent to you for confirmation that it appears as you desire.

    • When sending in InDesign files, please ensure that all supporting files are ‘packaged’ and sent in also. For help with this process, please contact us and our in-house designer will assist you.
