About Us


What Is Nippertown?

Nippertown is an online magazine based in the greater Capital Region and Hudson Valley regions of New York and western Massachusetts, writing about local art, music, theater, film and anything else that interests us. We’ve been publishing since May, 2009.


Why Nippertown?

We like dogs. We like music. We especially like large outdoor sculptures of dogs that look like they’re listening to music.

Nippertown FAQ

 

Q. Why didn’t you cover my band/festival/exhibit/performance/show/CD?

Unfortunately, we can’t cover every single event that occurs in our readership area. We try to spotlight items that we think will most interest our readers.

It’s also quite possible we didn’t know about it. Did you email us about it?

Perhaps we didn’t spotlight your event because we couldn’t find a non-Facebook website to link to for more information. (We usually don’t link to Facebook pages because, believe it or not, not everyone is on Facebook.)

Also, we don’t post about art events without a photo. We don’t dance about architecture, either.

And perhaps we just ran out of time – if you have a really exciting cd / festival / exhibit / performance / show / CD, why not contact us with an idea for a story? We’re not guaranteeing we’ll say yes, but check out how Andy Maroney got great coverage for Bandaoke by writing an article that described the show so vividly, you felt you were there.

Q. What’s the best way to send you event info?

We need the facts: What, Where, When, How, Why and Who. Please be sure to include the admission charge, or the words “Free Admission.”

You know what we love? Plain text emails with the facts at the top, a link to a website and one or two jpeg images, if applicable. Easy-peasy.

A press release as an attached PDF file is usually okay, but it takes us longer to deal with it. HTML email message are problematic: sometimes they come through, sometimes not. Be sure to provide an alternate web link.

It’s sad, but we routinely discard cool events that we want to write about because we can’t find enough information about them to list them on Nippertown, or because we can’t decipher the email you sent to us, or because we can’t find a website with contact information.

Q. What are your photo requirements?

With images, bigger is better. We custom compress all images, so please send photos that are at least 600 pixels wide. Expect your image to be edited (resized, cropped, brightened and/or sharpened).

Please make sure you have the right to use any image you’re sending us, and please let us know if you need us to give a photo credit to your photographer.

You can send a link to an image on another website instead of including the image in an email.

It makes us really happy if you identify the people in the photo. Or the author and title of the artwork in the photo. Or the CD title and band name. You get the idea.

Q. Can I reprint one of your posts on my website?

Feel free to post an excerpt from one of our posts with credit and a link back to Nippertown.com. Please contact us if you wish to reprint a post in its entirety.

Q. Can I use a photo from your site on my website?

For non-commercial purposes, you are free to use our photos so long as you include a photographer credit and a link back to Nippertown.com. For commercial use, please contact us for permission.

Q. I messaged you on Facebook five times and you never replied.

Yes, sorry about that. We forget to check our Facebook messages for weeks at a time. Unless you’re going to come over and check them for us, you’re better off emailing us.

Q. Will you post a photo of my dog?

No.
