Public Service Announcements

What makes a PSA good or bad?

Good PSAS are good because they give the facts – what, when, where, who, why – with a minimum of fuss.

Bad PSAS may be bad in form (for example, be too long or violate too many rules), or content (for example, be an advertisement) or both.
