The New Orleans Advocate will publish Carnival ball stories submitted by official Carnival krewes in the New Orleans metropolitan area.
To be considered for publication, stories and photographs must be submitted electronically no later than two weeks before the ball. Stories should include the names of the queen and maids, a description of the ball and any pertinent scene-setting details.
Only photographs of the queen and maids, in color, will be considered. Photographs should be at least 4x6 inches with a dpi of 72 or larger. Photographs must be submitted using the newspaper’s online photo-sharing form, http://sendphoto.theadvocate.com/
Ball stories will be published on the day after the ball, in most cases.
