Memorial 2016‎ > ‎

2016 Sponsorship

Whilst we endeavour to beg and borrow as much as equipment as we can to put this event on, the money from advertising is the sole source of funding for the match.

Prices for advertising remain the same as last year and the programme can accommodate several sizes of adverts, all in full colour and all include a FREE advert on our website and FREE link to your own website. There are also sponsorship opportunities for the horse and tractor ploughing classes that will get you extra acknowledgements in the programme, banners around the site and mentions at the prize presentation. Full details can be found by downloading the Sponsorship Schedule.

The Memorial Ploughing Match (MPM) and the Isle of Wight County Press (IWCP) have teamed up to produce a Double Page Spread advert to be published on Friday XXXXXXXXXX. The feature will include editoral and photographs and the chance for businesses who are associated with the MPM to place adverts.
    Simone Rose from the IWCP will be contacting business from the beginning of February. The adverts are normally 3cm x 2col and approximately £60 + VAT, but should you wish something different that she would be pleased to discuss this with you.
    PLEASE NOTE: the IWCP will produce their own invoices for advertising in the double page spread and this is nothing to do with the Memorial Ploughing Match advertising in the programme.

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch.

: MONDAY 29th February  -  Artwork deadline: 
SATURDAY 12th March.
