BOYS BY GIRLS
Launched in 2011, Boys by Girls is a collaborative project showcasing how female artists view and capture the male, presented in beautiful images online and in print. Boys by Girls celebrates the beauty of the male through exclusive photographic editorials, features, model profiles and model stories, and is aimed at anyone passionate about the male, menswear, models, photography and male beauty. Ever since its establishment, Boys by Girls not only showcases beautiful images by well-established female photographers, but also features work of young photographers, stylists and fashion writers, offering female talents opportunities to be noticed in the fashion world. It is the first publication to focus on the male exclusively in the perspective of the female. "Our content explores fashion and photography in a more intimate form, also revealing models' characters and personalities - an aspect which is often lost in the fashion photography. With our unique perspective and concept, Boys by Girls has already gained a wide audience online and we have recently released our fourth bookazine and first newsstand issue, which is being distributed globally by Pineapple Media Ltd and hit retailers such as Selfridges and Harrods in London, etc. Each issue has its own theme and central story which is then explored through editorials, portraiture, fashion, interviews and articles involving the boys, their interests, experiences, life and loves. The fourth issue, A Place Called Youth, explores the magic of youth, innocence and the mysterious transition between a boy and a man. Since its start the project has steadily been expanding on a daily basis and is now looking for sponsors and advertising partners to help continue to build the brand".

CERTYS LIMITED
Certys Limited is a media company (www.certys.co.uk), whose work includes public relations, marketing and web-based projects, and one of its areas of speciality is the arts, specifically creative writing. Director John Dean is a published novelist and creative writing tutor. Certys has launched the monthly Global Short Story Competition, which has already attracted entries from across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the US, Finland, France, Switzerland and South Korea to name a few. The competition is designed to appeal to writers everywhere and Certys already has extensive experience in running such competitions in the UK. So why did they launch this competition? Because they feel that the short story is endangered and they want to give undiscovered writers a voice and a chance to earn some money, and gain exposure, from their work. The judge is well-respected north east England author Fiona Cooper. Details of the competition can be obtained by visiting www.globalshortstories.net. The competition is entirely dependent on income from entries and a sponsor is needed to grow it: £10,000 is needed for the first year. So what will sponsors get for their money? Exposure across the UK and the wider world, their logo on the Certys website, a link to the sponsor's site if required and a mention in every bit of public relations material that the company sends out. Certys has already had decent coverage both in the local media and on many national and regional websites, for instance in the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Indeed, regional development agency One NorthEast is working with Certys through a public relations agency it has retained in Australia and New Zealand to develop the competition's profile 'down under', linking it to the agency's Passionate People, Passionate Places campaign.

AL/PL004 THE DAPHNE DU MAURIER FESTIVAL OF ARTS AND LITERATURE
Started in 1997, the Daphne du Maurier Festival has grown steadily and proved to be very popular attracting visitors from far and wide, giving sponsors the opportunity to reach a diverse audience for their products. The first festival celebrated the ninetieth anniversary of the author's birth and over the past fifteen years has become an important date in Cornwall's cultural literary calendar. Fowey, in Cornwall, has been proud to host this festival and has welcomed a variety of artists and performers to enjoy the delights of this ancient seaport on the wonderful south coast of Cornwall. With its focus of a tented village overlooking the Fowey Estuary, the festival has been popular with artists and visitors alike. The Festival Village houses a 600 seat auditorium, bookshop and a cafe and bar, with views over the river. In addition to the Festival Village, the Festival also uses many more venues in and around Fowey. Kathy Lette, Simon Hoggart, George Alagiah and AC Grayling have been among the many speakers and Julian Lloyd Webber, Seth Lakeman and Courtney Pine have provided musical entertainment. The programme includes a wide range of authors and other artistes during this ten day celebration. In the past artists such as Sir John Mills, Cleo Laine and John Dankworth have all asked to come again another year as they enjoyed the Festival's special atmosphere so much. The Festival Village events are complemented by community events. These include plays, talks, concerts, exhibitions and a series of guided walks. The festival has strong links with the local schools and is keen to encourage events suitable for, and put on by, the young generation. The University of Exeter has had a long association with the du Maurier Festival and has provided interesting and lively talks and debates covering a wide range of subjects. In 2010 the du Maurier Festival attracted 20,000 attendances. It has strong, loyal support from its enthusiastic supporters. An independent survey to assess the economic benefit stated     The Daphne Du Maurier Festival currently provides an event that is well supported and highly regarded by its visitors with high satisfaction levels throughout     The local community also supports the festival through attendance, but also appreciates the fact that it allows them to experience culture close to home. The festival, formerly run by Restormel Borough Council, then Cornwall Council, has recently been taken over by a joint committee of Fowey Town Council and the Port of Fowey Chamber of Commerce. The new committee is working to develop the festival further to encourage more visitors and in subsequent years to widen the range and breadth of its artistic programme. There is a range of sponsorship opportunities available in connection with this very special festival. Contact: Jonathan Aberdeen, Festival Administrator.

"We currently have 130 titles. Publications are designed to appeal to some 2 billion believers worldwide, with publications in eight languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Chinese and Japanese.

They are streamed onto a global delivery platform via our own website and also via Amazon channels to the US, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Brazil, Japan, Australia, Canada, Mexico and India. We aim to release two new titles/month/language.     Our reach - the nature of our content encourages lively debate and we have acquired a vigorous, interactive, debating audience on Twitter, with one of the highest records of favourited exchanges on the network, and also an interactive audience on Facebook, with daily impressions ranging between 20,000 and 103,000 impressions at minimum bid. With Twitter, Ads, at minimum bid, we achieve on average 50,000 impressions/day/cover, across English, French, Italian, Spanish and German. Daily website traffic is now over 10,000 impressions/month and growing fast. With the right amount of resources, we can increase this traffic per title per day a hundred fold. Because our content is sourced from approved revelations carrying the imprimatur of the likes of Pope Pius XII, and actively promoted by the much-loved Saint Padre Pio and Mother Theresa, our audience trusts us. By partnering with Lambbooks, our sponsor(s) stand to benefit from this trust". Contact: Martha. Address: 2 Dalkeith Court, 45 Vincent Street SW1P 4HH. Tel.: +44-751-2916-706. E-mail:

The agency for the author NICHOLAS ANDERSON
A British author of a new book trilogy - NOC, NOC Twice, NOC Three Times - whose identity on camera cannot be disclosed, so when he appears in public dons a black balaclava, which in itself immediately piques the public eye as to why? If you peruse the author's website you will see photographs indicating that he is a master of disguise as befits his former profession as a covert action intelligence officer writing about his fictionalised espionage adventures. However, his spoken eloquence is quite charming and he has a natural "communication voice", speaking directly and in sound bites. His agency is offering the likeness and usage of the author's name, Nicholas Anderson, the various book titles as seen inside a trademarked triangle (see logo of NOC, the first) for use in print and/or moving images, and invites interested parties seeking an involvement in sponsorship, product endorsement, placement opportunities, merchandising, advertising, etc. to tender a proposal to them forthwith. "We accept this is an unusual presentation but this is an unusual situation, leaning towards the non-commercial. And, yes, the feature films based on the books are currently in development, too. Media coverage on this international anti-hero is coming down the line anytime now so you know where to contact us. Nothing negative is sought, only the outside-the-box positive good, please.

    AL/0004     D. H. LAWRENCE HERITAGE
David Herbert Lawrence, the world famous novelist, poet and artist, was born in the town of Eastwood near Nottingham, on September 11th, 1885. Whilst he had a troubled relationship with the town of his birth, time and time again he wrote about the people and places of Eastwood and the surrounding countryside, 'The Country of my Heart'. D. H. Lawrence Heritage incorporates two unique sites, the D. H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum and Durban House Heritage Centre. The Birthplace Museum is an astounding re-creation of a Victorian, working class family home that is brought to life through informative and friendly guides. Durban House was the offices of the local coal owners, Barber, Walker & Co., where as a boy D. H. Lawrence would pick up his father's wages. Now a Heritage Centre, Durban House successfully depicts the Victorian past of Lawrence's mining hometown as well as offering culturally diverse and interactive exhibitions. A wide range of sponsorship opportunities are available, from the new Rainbow Gallery to the development of the Blue Line trail, including a sensory trail for the blind, from our education services to the new D.

AL/0008 ODD BOY FILM
Odd Boy Film offers the opportunity to sponsor a short film based on the poem My Black Skin, written by Nicholas Pinnock. The film is inspired by Black History Month in October 2011. "We are looking for a small amount of sponsorship to enable us to go into production. The piece is primarily a 'talking heads' in style, but with more movement, shot in black and white and with a fairly loose camera style. The length of the piece will be approximately three minutes. Throughout the film we intercut between different people: men, women and children from all walks of life, unknown, known and well-known from all over England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, reciting either a word, a line or a verse from the poem. We will see these people in the various locations where they live or work, so as to get across the feeling that the people the poem refers to, and is for, are those who are these people - everyday people from different walks of life, that do different things and may have different levels of reference/relevance in the piece, but that all share a common bond: the fact that black skin is important to them. Intercut into the poem will be film and pictures of iconic people from history: Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Sidney Poitier, William Wilberforce, JFK, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens and Abraham Lincoln. We will feature a black albino and someone doing sign language; a foreign language speaker; and someone with limited abilities, so that as many people as possible will be represented by, and will identify with, the piece. We also feel it necessary to include people from other races with an established link to black culture, either through what they do for/with the black community or if they are linked to it through marriage or are parents to black, mixed race children. Our aim is have two to three charities on board, such as the ACLT and the Skin Cancer Research Fund, to help raise awareness. We will look to submit to broadcast by the end of October. Please invest in a worthwhile creative and social piece". Contact: Ryan Elliott. Address: 6b Friern Road, London SE22 0AT. Tel.: 0044 7976727611. E-mail:
