EVENT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
To get started:
(1) Register a free user account at https://www.marinarts.org/register/.
(2) Login to your account, and find the gray dashboard menu to the left side.
(3) Click on “EVENTS” which opens up a sub-menu below, and then click on “EVENTS” in the sub-menu to start creating your event listing.
Location: Events must take place in Marin County.
Lead Time: Events must be submitted at least two to four weeks prior to the event start date. If we receive your event info less than two weeks in advance, we cannot guarantee that your event will be posted.
Public and Private Events: Both public and private/invitation-only events will be accepted. For the latter, please indicate that the event is private/invitation-only, prominently in the event description field.
Required Fields: Please be sure to include content for all required fields marked with an asterisk (*). The system will not proceed forward if required content is missing, and will display a red alert next to any fields with missing data.
Word Count: Please limit event descriptions to 250 words. Your event link will take viewers to a fuller event description if so required. Summaries will be edited to fit into two lines.
Event Images: Upload a single Featured Image with your event listing in .JPG or .PNG format ONLY and no larger than 1 megabyte:
- Required minimum of 400 x 400 pixels.
- The Primary/Featured Image must be SQUARE.
For your event to be considered as a featured event (Staff picks and Email newsletter), we must have a professional-quality promotional image to display with your listing. You may add additional images in the event gallery (these need not be square).
Ticket Links: For events that are not Free, please include a “Ticket” link, even if it duplicates the event’s “Official website” link (which should link directly to the relevant event page on your website). This displays in a prominent button near the top of the description.
Admission Fees: Please use the “Ticket Information” section for all prices, fees, and admission details. Do not duplicate in the event description.
Times: Please use the “Additional Time Information” section for time-of-day information. The dates/times you enter into our calendar system are for the search-by-date function, but do not display separately in the visible listing.
Event submissions will be vetted for format prior to publication. MarinArts reserves the right to edit graphic images and submissions for word count, grammar, style, and accuracy, as well as remove any listings that we believe are not suitable for the site.
