CREATING YOUR ONLINE SUBMISSION:

Once you are logged in, you will see the New Submission tab. Click on this tab to submit your commercial, infomercial and or public service announcement. All boxes with a red asterisk * are required fields and must be completed for the submission to be accepted. Please click on the green button beside the Brand field to add your brand. You will also have to select an appropriate brand sub-category.

You may add attachments such as; scripts, letters, and the spot right to the file (with a 20MB max file size) in the Attachments section (Telecaster will receive an e-mail notification if you add an attachment to a file). You may also submit on behalf of someone else (in the Submitting on Behalf Of Section) so that you and that contact will receive all correspondence on this submission (review notes, telecaster number, etc...)

Once you have completed the form press the Submit button and this will place your submission in the queue for Telecaster to see. You will receive an e-mail notification that your submission has been placed online.

If you are submitting an Infomercial, you will be prompted to complete payment prior to completing the submission. Please note that the infomercial will not be reviewed until payment has been received.

To enter another commercial of a different advertiser or brand, click on the New Submission tab again and this will refresh the page.

If you are submitting a number of spots from the same advertiser, you may copy the submission form by selecting Copy Submission. This will transfer all the details into a new submission, all you will have to change is in the differing details (I.e. SD to HD or :15 to :30). Not only will this save you time, but it will link the submissions together. Select Save when you’ve completed the new form to ensure the second submission has been created successfully.

If you have any questions about how to use the site, please call 416-923-8813 and press 2 to reach an analyst.
