  • Bookings will be placed after a consultative meeting with the IT Generalist or designate and suitable digital files are submitted to the IT Generalist. Initial consultation should be requested via email to mediawalls@ucalgary.samanage.com
  • Digital files are submitted 10 working days prior to placement on walls

  • Use few words and large fonts as viewers are often 4-8’ away
  • Check for accuracy
