Share your news

People regularly tell us they miss announcements that used to be in the local newspaper, so we are introducing them to the Northern Beaches Advocate.

Social media announcements often miss the mark, are temporary, and cannot be found by search engines. So we have dedicated a section of our website for announcements, with benefits not available elsewhere.

Your announcement will be published on the Northern Beaches Advocate for at least one year. It will be visible to search engines, meaning anyone searching the internet will find it, not just people searching on our website.

What does it cost?

$150.00 (including GST) per announcement.

How does it work?

Each announcement can include one photo and up to 300 words. Fill in the online form below, with the details of the announcement you want us to publish. Once we have reviewed the submission and payment is made, it will be published.

What announcements can be made?

  • Births
  • Deaths
  • Engagements
  • Weddings
  • Anniversaries
  • Graduations
  • Employment
  • Public Notices

If you are not sure which category to choose, select Public Notices.

What will it look like?

We have included an example of a wedding announcement.

The photo you provide will appear as the main image in a landscape format. If you cannot upload a suitable photo, we will select a themed image for you.

The text of your announcement will appear below the main image. Please limit your announcement to 300 words.
