Ad formats

Material Specifications – Usage and distribution

The purpose of this document is to help advertisers, agencies and publishers to get an understanding of what the Widespace formats represent – the brand impact or brand lift that can be achieved, how they work, what they look like and the creative components that need to be delivered. Material deliveries that comply to this specification speed up production and minimise delays. Please note that there might be differences for local markets, always contact us when you have a question, and we will be able to advise based on the requirements of the campaign.

All creative content and formats must follow IAB’s Ad Standards and Creative Guideline.
For more information, please read about it here.
