GUIDELINES FOR UNSOLICITED MATERIAL
Any material received by anyone suggesting any creative concepts or proposals should be immediately returned to the envelope in which it came and returned to the sender with a letter explaining that it is our policy not to review any such material without first receiving a signed release. An example of such a letter is attached to this memorandum. The letter should also enclose our standard form release for the submission of unsolicited material. A copy of that form is also attached.
