No multiple offerings. For example, a temple should not enlist all its bhaktas to write offerings under the temple heading. Joint authorship (2--4 devotees) of a single offering is fine.
Please make sure you tell us where the offering originates. For example: Harinama dasa (HDG) Mexico. If we don't know where the offering comes from, we will not include it.
Please include the following info in your offering:<ol>
Devotional Name (if not initiated, your legal name
Guru (if not yet initiated, left in blank)
Congregation name or city where you asist.</li></ol>
Offerings can be in any language.

Please omit all diacritics.
Do not "recycle" an offering--no offerings from previous years will be accepted.
The Vyasa-puja book is meant for glorifying Srila Prabhupada, not for venting grievances. We reserves the right to reject an offering it deems inappropriate or to ask for a rewrite.
When writing an offering on behalf of a temple or other unit, please try to write in such a way that the other devotees in your unit can also identify with the offering. This is not a hard and fast rule.
