… Publish Announcements?

Notes & Events Submission Guidelines


The Notes & Events section of Hampton Magazine is an opportunity for residents, groups and organizations to post announcements, awards, honors, requests and events. Submissions to the Notes & Events section are published as space permits. Photos are always considered but may not always be published due to space limitations.

Most submissions of a non-commercial nature are considered. We don't typically publish commercial messages (unless of a newsworthy nature) or announcements of engagements and weddings. We prefer to receive submissions via email as this is the most accurate and error-free form of publication. Requests to publish an item in Notes & Events may be sent to editor@hamptonmagazine.org. Submissions to the Notes & Events Section are Published Free of charge

  • February (Mid-Winter Issue): Submissions due by January 1
  • April (Spring Issue): Submissions due by March 1
  • June (Summer Issue): Submissions due by May 1
  • August (Mid-Summer Issue): Submissions due by July 1
