How do I place an ad?

Contact us at welcome@icidici.com or use our contact form and we’ll help you through what is really a simple process.

All ads are images that are links to your website if you have one, or to your Facebook page if you have one of those. We can always provide a custom web page on Icidici for you to link to.

If you’re interested in the technical details, the images for ads are typically in jpeg (jpg) format, but we also accept PNG and GIF formats. There are four sizes of images:

  • Banner images are 728 pixels wide by 90 pixels high
  • Tower images are 300 pixels wide x 600 pixels high
  • Full box images are 300 pixels wide x 250 pixels high
  • Half box images are 300 pixels wide x 80 pixels high


The items you will want to consider for your ad are:

Location on the page

  • You can choose to display a banner ad at the top or the bottom of the page content.
  • All other sizes are displayed in the right margin, that is, to the right of the content area.

Pages on which to display your ad

  • You can choose to place your ad on the Front page or on Category pages (for now they will appear on every page in the chosen category).
  • Categories are listed at the top of all pages beginning with Focus.
  • You should know that your ads will share the chosen space with other ads, but in a limited rotation.

How much does it cost?

Ads are booked in one or more two-week blocks. The following introductory rates are for each two-week block.

Ad size Front Page Category
Header banner $120 $96
Tower $160 $128
Full box $80 $64
Footer banner $80 $64
Half box $40 $32

How do I pay for an ad?

  • You can pay using a credit card.
  • We can invoice you and then you can pay by cheque or eTransfer (Interac with your online banking).


What about public service announcements?

We do not provide free PSA space in the paid advertising areas. However, PSAs can be listed free in the Events area and they can also be presented, free, as a story, perhaps referencing similar previous events (with pictures, of course).

Can I cancel or change an ad?

Usually, yes. Just let us know.
