IVAO reserves the right to select appropriate
sizes for adverts based on available space

  • The default advertisement size is 1/8 page with 1/4 and 1/2 page sizes reserved for commercial or partner advertisements at the magazine team's discretion
  • As “Virtual Sky” is an online publication there is no need for any bleed area, however we would suggest keeping text and images at least 6mm from all borders
  • For ease of inclusion into the magazine, adverts should be submitted in PDF format but we are able work with most standard file formats.
  • There is no requirement for advertisers to provide any form of discount to IVAO members, however that would be a nice gesture if practical to manage
  • IVAO and the “Virtual Sky” team reserve the right to reject or remove any advertisement deemed inappropriate
  • The placement of adverts will depend on the available space on an issue by issue basis
