How to Submit Your Programming…
So you’ve signed-up as a PAPA Member and want to know how to submit your programming for broadcast… While your orientation class should have provided you with this crucial information, we are recapping it here for easy reference in case you forget.
Please always indicate the intended air date or episode number in the title of the video file. We cannot guarentee a preferred time to any show and reserve the right to change our programming schedule, however we pledge to work with all producers to accommodate broadcasting preferences for their content. While producers retain intellectual rights to their products, PAPA staff reserves the right to edit and reuse content for purposes of station promotion and marketing.
The following guidelines must be used for all media submissions:
Only individual or organizational members of PAPA may submit programming for broadcast. Nonprofits registered with the State of WA or local government entities may submit PSA content (up to 3-minutes) without paying membership fees.
While we can accept video in a variety of codecs, we prefer .mp4 (h.264) files at 29.97 fps. Please coordinate delivery of program files with our Station Manager…
Programs can be delivered to our studio on an SD Card or Flash (Thumb) Drive. PAPA Studios can also transfer files from external harddrives and has shuttle drives available to checkout as a delivery resource. Programming may also be submitted online through our Nextcloud Account (producer access must be coordinated with our Station Manager).
On Air Guarentee
Peninsula Area Public Access agrees to air each program at a designated premiere timeslot and may play addition reruns. Please coordinate Total Run Time (TRT) of each submission with our Station Manager.
No promotion of products, commercial business or services, or lotteries will be allowed per PAPA policies.
