Advertising in Going Natural/Au Naturel Magazine

Inquiries about advertising rates, billing, etc., should go to the Advertising Manager. Inquiries about ad copy should go to the Editor. No ad will be accepted that contravenes widely accepted naturist principles. Ads unrelated to naturism (e.g. selling furniture, houses, or cars) are acceptable but will be given lower priority if space is tight.

Below are the current rates for advertising in Going Natural/Au Naturel magazine. We encourage businesses in any country to advertise in GN. Because Canada is a huge country, Canadians are inveterate travellers. Many Canadian naturists visit warmer countries, especially for holidays during the Northern Hemisphere’s winter.

Display ads must be camera-ready. Any additional work (typesetting, complex scanning, clean-up, descreening, corrections, etc.) will be billed to the advertiser on a per-case basis.

  • Additional words costing 0.50¢ each for each insertion of the ad (hyphenated words are counted for each segment; minimum cost $5.00).
