Summer Placements and Introductory Rates 

Rates are expected to increase after the summer, for the fall and peak holiday seasons. However, early advertisers are guaranteed the very best deals for those seasons. 

Banner Ad (submit as 728 x 80 pixels) — $180 first week, $100 extra week (maximum of 4 weeks)

Top of the Sidebar size 1 (submit as 400 x 300 pixels) — $90 first week, $50 extra week

Top of the Sidebar size 2 (submit as 400 x 225 pixels) — $75 first week, $40 extra week

Lower Sidebar Ad (submit as 400 x 225 pixels) — pay-what-you-choose basis (suggested amount: $20/week)


Banner Ad: Top Real Estate 

The banner is the first to reach visitors on NWTheatre’s home page, and it’ll be the same across other key pages, too — performance calendar, reviews, and more. And unlike other sites, here your ad does not rotate with others: once you reserve that spot, it’s yours, for the time period (a week or more) you’ve reserved it.

There is only one banner ad, so act fast to reserve your spot. 


Top of the Sidebar: Great Real Estate 

The top sidebar ads are prominent eye-catchers for visitors on NWTheatre’s home page, and they’ll be the same across other key pages, too — performance calendar, reviews, and more. And unlike other sites, here your ad does not rotate with others.

This set of ads appears above anything else in the sidebar (on computer view), or above everything else in the lower section (mobile view). This set will be limited to 4-6 ads, at most, at a time. 


Pay-What-You-Choose Sidebar Ads   

Advertising on NWTheatre is designed to be accessible to all sizes of shows, and all budget levels. For that reason, NWT offers the option of pay-what-you-choose ads in the lower sidebar, to any company with which NWT has an existing relationship. As with the other ads, your ad does not rotate with others and is designed to be eye-catching and allow your show to stand out to site visitors.



General Parameters 

All ads should abide by a general good neighbor standard — e.g., truthful and accurate in content; clear and artistic in design; reasonably appropriate for all audiences; and not disparaging of any people, groups, or other companies. NWTheatre retains the right to refuse any ad, for those or any other concerns, in its sole discretion. Links should go to a working, safe link, to a site over which the advertiser (company) has control.  Ads should be easy to read for visitors and should, for example, avoid very loud colors, small text, and script fonts. NWTheatre will do its very best to ensure all ads appear as agreed and intended; but in the event of a technology or human failing, any damages are limited to a refund of advertising price.

Bottom line: NWTheatre values its relationships with theatre companies and the arts community, and will deal in good faith; and expects its advertisers will, too.



Non-Theatre Advertising  

Ads from businesses that are not theatre or dance performance companies will be considered on a limited, case-by-case basis, for certain placements (excluding pay-what-you-choose ads). In general, companies with a longstanding or close relationship to artistic communities will get highest priority. Examples include: restaurants and bars who serve arts communities or events, theatre artists who create other products, film festivals and other arts genres. Please contact NWTheatre with specific inquiries.



Direct Contributions 

Want to contribute but not advertise? We’re happy to accept direct contributions, either as payment toward advertising space for your favorite (or an unnamed) performance company, or as a general donation. Please note: any contributions made to NWTheatre are not tax deductible, as NWT is not a 501(c)(3) organization.

If you’d like to make a contribution to NWTheatre, please feel free to do it for any of the following: (1) providing a credit for a specific (named) theatre company to advertise on NWT; (2) providing a credit for a lower-budget or underrepresented theatre company (unnamed) to get prominent advertising, which NWTheatre will allocate to a company of its choosing, with those aims in mind, in the form of free advertising space; or (3) making a no-strings-attached contribution to NWT for general operating expenses.


Please contact with any questions. As always, we hope we’re providing you with a welcome and valuable service, and thank you for your support!
