We'd like you to follow these basic rules for anythign you contribute
Especially with events, please don't be too hypey (be objective please!) or use ALL CAPS anwhere. If in doubt, use other events on the site as a style guide.
Basic information required is where it is, when it is, who's playing and what kind of event it is... But we really want more than that... tell us what's special about it.
Be objective. Hype doesn't sell, Tell the truth! Why will people want to come to your event, what makes it special, what's on offer.
Check your spelling. We won't do it for you!
We check off each event before it goes live. If it doesn't meet the spec, you'll be emailed, possibly with an explanation. We may or may not edit it. Depending on how much work is needed, we may get you to resubmit it.
Pics can be uploaded in pretty much any format, and will be converted to jpeg for display.
We keep your original file in case we need a hi res copy. If you're uploading files, don't be worried about them being to big - upto around 1000 pixels on the longest edge is good.
If you're uploading photos, please make sure they're nicely cropped and color balanced (ie use the levels or curves commands in photoshop).
Once you have entered and checked your contribution, it will be passed to our editors for checking and approval.
