Submission Guidelines

  • Send us your links through the contact form
  • You can also email Santa.
  • We'll take links to galleries of photos, news articles, or to videos. If you have a place where people can buy photos (like Sam does), that's great. Send us the link(s)!
  • Individual social media posts should be tagged #SantaconPWM, we'll like/share where possible, as possible. Please don't email your posts to us, send them over the appropriate network. And make sure your permissions are set so everyone can see them!
  • Please just send links. We can't really host your media.
  • Please make sure to include which year it's from.
  • If you want credit when we share on FB, Twitter, etc, please make sure to include your appropriate handle.
  • We reserve the right to not post things, and to remove things, for pretty much any reason.

Removal Requests

  • Send 'em to Santa, just like an addition. We'll consider each one individually.
  • Note: We have little control over the content of the pages we link to. If there's something wrong there, we recommend contacting the destination directly.
  • Requests to unlink content will likely only be honored if they come from the content owner (or proper representative).
  • Email us about dead links. We'll fix them if we can, or remove them if we can't.

Media Requests

  • Media Requests - for interviews, photos, etc - can be directed to Sam Cousins, our media representative & photographer. Email sam@ this domain. Requests can also be made via the contact form or through Facebook.
  • If you have an article or photos to share, send them along, and we'll share them to the group.
