Marketing Project Request

CMDA Marketing and Communications

Why this form?

To enable the CMDA Marketing Department to manage the scheduling and creation of all marketing and publicity requests from CMDA administration, faculty and staff for CMDA branding, SOM and SOT marketing needs in a timely and accurate manner.

This ensures that we know all your marketing needs plus provides all the event information or documents, performer biography, pieces performed and/or photos for events, festivals, fundraising outreach, CMDA recruitment, seasonal performance guides and other marketing such as advertising or publicity needed for the project.

Which projects?

Need a poster or a flyer? Website event page update or bio update? Want a photo taken of you or your event? All marketing, publicity and photography needs for print, digital or various media should be communicated to CMDA Marketing via submission of this form.

Project Status Emails

To keep you informed of the status of your project, you will get three emails: (1) project receipt (2) project in queue/in process and (3) project completed
