Both magazines are published by BBUK Headquarters with Blink being sent out in January, April, October and the Gazette in January, April, July, October each year. To meet the deadlines for being included in the next edition, articles need to be received at BBUK Headquarters on the 1st of the month, 2 months before publication e.g. 1st February for the April edition. The Gazette is sent out to over 11,000 leaders and Blink to over 4,000 young people — so if your article makes it to press then it’s guaranteed to be read by thousands of others in the BB around the UK and Republic of Ireland!
