Sponsor a SCICX Crossword

This is the start of SCICX and the modest prizes come from the advertising you see on this site. That means everyone can help in making the prizes more enticing. However, what would be really great is to have a sponsor for each Science Cryptic Crossword on SCICX.

Sponsor Benefits

Each crossword is currently posted to this site and available as a pdf document.

There is space for at least one and possibly two banners. Please see the current crosswords for possible layout. I can work with the sponsor on layout if the banner has different dimensions.

The sponsor's banners will appear on both the webpage here at SCICX and the pdf document. The appearance of the banners on syndicated websites will depend on the terms of those websites, however, there will always be a link to the pdf version.

The crossword that is sponsored will retain the banners and links for however long the crossword is on the internet, so that the advertising will continue beyond the closing date of that particular competition.

The sponsor's banner(s) will also be included in the solution page when that is published, both online and in pdf form.

The sponsor may request a "themed" crossword that closely ties in with their services or products.

The sponsor will be advertising to an audience that is culturally aware and scientifically literate. 

Sponsor Requirements

The sponsor shall pay a sponsorship fee, to be agreed and paid before all work begins. Should the sponsor require a "themed" crossword then that shall be decided at this point.

The sponsor shall also donate a minimum of 3 prizes to be distributed to the prize winners. The sponsor will be responsible for distributing the prizes.

The sponsor shall supply the banners in a suitable format and, once the layout has been agreed it cannot be changed. Once the crossword is published the advertising cannot be changed.
