About SourceOregon

What is SourceOregon?

SourceOregon is OMPA's directory of production companies, stages and studio services, government and business liaisons, and other media service providers. In addition to hosting an online directory at SourceOregon.com, we publish a printed version that also contains a magazine section highlighting the variety of media activity occurring across Oregon. Your listing makes a first impression with every project that considers producing in Oregon and keeps you in touch with the crew and producers of Oregon's industry.

What is OMPA's relationship to SourceOregon?

Oregon Media Production Association (OMPA) manages the online directory and produces the annual publication. OMPA is a 501(c)6 non-profit trade association for the film, television and interactive media industry. Individuals and businesses join OMPA to support their industry, attend networking events, receive industry news and exclusive promotional opportunities. Members receive one free SourceOregon listing annually, as a part of their Member benefits. This free listing can max out the listing features (example: max word count, logo, & reel).

What is the SourceOregon publication?

The SourceOregon publication is split up into two sections. The first section is a magazine and the second section is a directory. The magazine section highlights productions around the state. Since OMPA publishes the magazine, OMPA only highlights media activity produced by, featuring and/or staffed by OMPA Members. Click here to view the 2017 magazine section.

Each year, before sending the magazine to print, OMPA pulls the renewed listings from SourceOregon.com and that information makes up the directory section. Any listings that have been added to or renewed for the 2018 year will be included in the 2018 SourceOregon printed directory.

What is the difference between the printed and the online directory?

Listings are uploaded to the online directory at the time they are purchased and after references are approved. Listings which are purchased or renewed between August 1st and the November 15th deadline are also included in next year's printed publication at no extra charge.

Why should I list?

Many in-state and out-of-state productions contact us for crew and we refer them to the SourceOregon. It is important to make sure that your name is included with your industry peers.

A more complete directory makes it easier for us to market Oregon as a place to do business. If you have worked on any of the projects Oregon has attracted from out of state, you've benefited from the directory.

If you aren't getting any work in the industry, you might consider calling some other people in the publication and networking with them. If you are an OMPA member, we can help facilitate those introductions for you.


Getting Listed

How do I get listed?

Go to SourceOregon.com/GetListed to list for the first time.

How much does a listing cost?

Listing prices depend on the features that you choose.

First, you select a listing type:

  • Basic Listing (Name, Contact Info, Website) = $35
  • Short Description (Name, Contact Info, Website, 30 Word Description) = $50
  • Long Description (Name, Contact Info, Website, 60 Word Description) = $75

You can also choose to have the following additions:

  • Add a logo = $25
  • Add a reel link = $20

The least expensive listing costs $35 (Basic Listing). The most expensive listing costs $120 (Long Description, Logo, & Reel Link). OMPA members receive one free listing. This listing can be Basic, Short or Long and can include both a logo and reel link -- a $120 value.

Can I pay more to rank my listing higher on the list?

Our current SourceOregon system ranks listings higher if they have a reel link and/or logo. This is another reason to add these features to your listing.

In the printed directory, OMPA puts OMPA members at the top of each category list. We hope to reflect this in the future when we upgrade our system.

How do I list if I qualify for multiple categories?

You are welcome to list in more than one category. A separate listing must be made for each category. OMPA members receive one free listing. Any listing after that free listing will be priced depending on the features chosen.

Each listing is a minimum of $35. If you are an OMPA member, we suggest utilizing your free listing with the one that could benefit from a longer description, logo & reel.

You will also be vetted for each category and will be required to provide references.

Can I edit my listing later?

Yes. You can login to your SourceOregon account at any time and edit your listing. Edits made by November 15th, 2017, will be included in the printed directory. Edits made after that date will be reflected online only.

If you add additional features, you will be charged for those "upgrades". See Can I "upgrade" my listing after I've purchased it?

Can I "upgrade" my listing after I've purchased it?

Yes. At any time, you can login to your SourceOregon account and make edits to your listing. This can include "upgrading" your listing. You simply pay the difference for your upgrades.

Example 1: You can go from a Basic Listing to Short Description Listing for $15.

Example 2: You can add a logo at any time for $25.

You are also welcome to remove logos, reel links, descriptions. Refunds will only be honored one week after purchase date. OMPA will not be issuing refunds after November 1st, 2017.

Can I get a refund for my listing?

Refunds will only be honored one week after purchase date. OMPA will not be issuing refunds after November 1st, 2017.


Renewing Your SourceOregon Listing

How do I renew my listing?

Go to SourceOregon.com/GetListed/Login to login to your account and renew your listings.

Why do I need to renew my listing?

If you do not renew your listing, your current listing will go offline at the end of year.

In order to be in the 2018 SourceOregon printed directory, you must renew between August 1st and November 15th, 2017.

Once your listing has been renewed, it will live online until December 31st, 2018. It will also be included the 2018 SourceOregon printed directory.

When is the deadline to be included in the 2018 SourceOregon printed directory?

You must renew your listing by November 15th, 2017. That is the final day to be included in the printed directory.

What if I renew my listing after November 15th, 2017?

Any listing renewed after November 15th, 2017 and before August 1st, 2018, will live online until December 31st, 2018. It will not be included in 2018 printed directory.

When I login, my listing says that it expires December 31st, 2017. Why do I need to renew by November 15th?

SourceOregon online directory listings expire at the end of every year. In order for our magazine/printed directory to come out in early 2018, we must have most our material ready mid-November.

All listings that have not been renewed will stay online until the expiration date (December 31st, 2017).

All listers that want to be included in the printed directory must renew by November 15th, 2017. Once renewed, the listing will live online until the end of next year and will be included in the printed directory.


OMPA Members

I'm an OMPA member. What are my SourceOregon benefits?

OMPA members receive one free listing. Any additional listing is $35 minimum. The price increases depending on word count, logo and reel. The free listing for OMPA includes maximum word count, logo and reel. Individuals can pay for a listing without being an OMPA member.

Do I have to be an OMPA member to be listed in SourceOregon?

No, you do not have to be an OMPA member to be listed in SourceOregon.

If I joined OMPA/renewed my OMPA membership, am I automatically listed?

OMPA does not automatically list you or your company on SourceOregon when you join or renew your membership. You must go to SourceOregon.com to list yourself in your desired category. The listing owner is in charge of updating that information when necessary or at renewal.

When you are listing, check the box on the form that indicates that you are an OMPA member. This will remove your listings price (or most expensive listing) from your total.

I'm an OMPA sponsor and I qualified for additional free listings.

OMPA will contact you regarding your listings. Feel free to contact anne@ompa.org if you have any questions or would like to confirm.
