This is a uniquely challenging time for all of us and we are all in this together.  Things will be changing daily and hourly.

Capitol Communicator and its supporters are establishing this forum where our community of advertising, marketing, public relations, creatives and everyone connected to the communications community can voice their concerns, ideas, stories, insight, outlook, outreach, etc.

This is only a start and this forum will evolve on a daily basis as we champion on the best we can. Let’s keep the content thoughtful — no politics, no hate speech, no blame game. There are plenty of other channels for that. Let’s hear from you about what you or your organization are doing to cope and/or re-invent, to help your colleagues and peers.

Creatives: Graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, videographers and all creatives are invited to share your visual interpretation of the unfolding events. See specifications below.

Please send your blog posts to: Editor Greater DC Region, Northern VA, Richmond Editor Greater Baltimore Region, Annapolis, Columbia Publisher

Specs: We are creating a special category for these posts which can be accessed from our Home Page in the Categories section. The category is called Coronavirus. The feature artwork size is 750 X 400. Provide a .png, .jpg or .gif?. Artwork for the body should be no wider than 750 pixels. Please keep copy within 1,000 words. Embed code for video and podcasts are allowed. No anonymous posts. We need your name and email, but your title and organization are optional. We prefer that you are located in the Mid-Atlantic region but that is not mandated. We reserve the right to edit or not publish.

Be safe, stay well, wash your hands, and good luck not touching your face. Together, we’ll get through this.
