Contact Miles Gavin, who can create images for colleagues.

Guidelines

Please note that the running time for an image is 10 seconds per rotation, as such, the image must contain a minimal copy (40 words or less). The team reserves a right to turn down requests to promote the content on digital screens if the copy is considered too long. We also strongly advice to have the text big and bold so it is noticed. Below is an examples of good -practice for screen content:
