Service Requests

Public Relations, Marketing and Digital Content
Service Requests 

pr requests 
The Office of College Advancement & Public Relations develops and implements strategic communication plans in a variety of media. To further the mission of Mississippi Delta Community College, we also collaborate on qualifying projects initiated by campus clients, providing consulting, guidance, project management, and creative services in:
 
Advertising        Photography          Print         Social Media          
Video          Web         Other Promotional Items

 

PROJECT REQUESTS
Complete this form for all project requests such as flyers, brochures, print advertisements, video, etc. 

Note that this request form is for single, specific, clearly defined projects. Proposed projects need to be focused and thought-out -- a single brochure, poster, postcard, social media account, etc. We have only a limited amount of time to offer, and that time needs to be distributed across the many departments and programs requesting our help. Again, we hope this online form will provide a fair access point for those projects to be considered and queued. Also note that not all projects will qualify for time or resources. Assistance and services are provided on an as-can basis, and are contingent upon funding planning and time available – so advance planning and lead time are important. We recommend at least one to two months of lead time for hard deadlines. If we cannot assist you on your project, we can offer guidance on how to move forward with your project. After you submit your request, you will be contacted as soon as possible for a follow-up discussion.

PUBLICITY REQUESTS
Complete this form for assistance in preparing and distributing press releases or requests for publicity.
