Organising events

Promote your event in our calendar

Promote your event in the Mitchell Shire Event Calendar — no event is too big or too small to appear. Event listings are free.

You will need a description (25 words minimum, 200 words maximum) and photos of your business or event. At least one photo is required.

FAQs

What events can I promote?
What information should I include in my event description?
  • The description should focus on the event
  • Use the event name in the first paragraph
  • One idea per paragraph – space out your text
  • No abbreviations or acronyms
  • Use capitals for names only, such as Victoria or Bath Street, not for entire words like “FREE”
  • No special characters: @ # % * ( ) _ + >< ... or any copyright, trademark or registered character
  • Write in the Third Person. Do not use: I, me, my, we, our or us
  • If available, include information about event time or entry cost
  • Do not include venue address, dates, phone, website or email details in the description. These should go into their own fields
What sort of photo should I use to promote my event?
  • Please supply a high resolution picture representing your event
  • Load images in their original format — the bigger the better
  • Images are automatically resized so don't worry about adjusting them yourself
  • Landscape format are best
  • No text/writing over the photo if avoidable
  • No banners, logos, posters or flyers — the writing may be cut off when the photo is resized
  • Images must be in focus
  • Images must have no copyright restrictions
