How should my media (images etc.) be formatted?

Please follow these guidelines when submitting your media for your listing on Churchmusic.ie – you will submit the below in the “Client Area” of the website. Once you sign up, you receive instructions on how to access this area of the website.

We strongly recommend that in addition to an image, you also supply us with an audio recording. A video may also be submitted if available.

  • Image: This should be in landscape format – and not portrait! In other words, it should be a wide image rather than a tall image. It should be at least 650 pixels in width.
  • Audio: This should be in mp3 format, and should roughly 3 minutes in duration. If you don’t have any audio recorded, a simple solution is to use your phone to record yourself. The recording quality is not important. What is more important is that you actually have a recording in your listing! Once you have your recording made on your phone, you should simply then email us that recording. Most phones have this option – just like emailing an image.
  • Video: If you have a video of yourself performing live – great! Send us the link (Youtube, Vimeo etc.) or you can actually upload the video to the website via the “Client Area” mentioned above.

How can I update my listing with new info/media?

Log in to the Client Area with the password you were sent by email when you signed up. If you have any difficulties, please send us an email to info@churchmusic.ie and we will send you instructions on how to do this. Or call us at any point if you have any enquiries!
