Placing your ads/materials in the Media Center allows other communities, states, and organizations to take advantage of the time and expense that you have put
into producing high-quality materials. This exposure can help to build wider recognition of your ads/materials. If you represent a nonprofit organization or
government agency and have materials to share, the first step is to complete the online submission form. When we receive your completed form, we will follow up
with you to request an electronic file or link to your ad(s)/material(s). This information will be shared with the Media Center Steering Committee responsible
for reviewing ads/materials and determining if they are appropriate for inclusion in the Media Center.
If the Media Center Steering Committee accepts your ad(s)//material(s), we will send you a licensing agreement that allows the CDC nonexclusive rights to
redistribute your materials. A representative from your organization who is authorized to bind your organization to legal agreements must sign this document.
You will then be asked to send us the ad/material source files along with additional detailed information about the audience research, performers, music, models,
themes, target audiences, or other considerations for each ad/material.
Organizations that have placed ads/materials in the Media Center have done so as a service to others working on physical activity, nutrition, obesity, or
healthy-living efforts. There is no cost to the producing organization to place ads/materials in the Media Center nor is there any payment to the producing
organization to include ads/materials in the collection. Any talent or other usage fees for use of the ads/materials are incurred by the organization that
uses the ads/materials.
We receive many inquiries from individuals, advertising agencies, schools, etc., that have produced materials and want to include them in the Media Center.
Unfortunately, most of these materials are not of broadcast quality, and most are not based on rigorous research and testing. Therefore, we restrict materials
that we accept into the Media Center to only those produced by state and local government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and federal agencies. If you are
from an entity other than a government or nonprofit (health) organization and have produced high-quality ads/materials, and if you have research to demonstrate
their effectiveness, please contact the Media Center to discuss submission to the Media Center. Exceptions to this policy will be made on a case-by-case basis
and may not be granted.
