    Additional Submission Tips

    -  Use the site search to check if your event has already been submitted since we do not want duplicates of the same event
    -  We recommend submitting your events on a more modern browser, such as Firefox or Chrome
    -  If your event has multiple venues you should create a new event for each separate venue; if your event is a festival you can always note the other events in the description so users know to search for them
    -  When adding venues and organizations, use a complete address with street, city, state, and zip code
    -  Use a photo that is interesting, high-res, not blurry, and free of text since your event title will go on top of your image
    -  These will be on the event’s description page so use your Event Card Image again to have that part of it
    -  Utilize appropriate tags for users to have a better chance to find your event
    -  Do not put time and dates in the description, use appropriate field instead
    -  Do not type your title or description in all caps, we don’t want it to look like you are shouting
    -  Proofread your text description before submitting to alleviate having to make changes later
    -  Phillyfunguide has thousands of events so your event may not appear until closer to its start date
    -  See our Privacy Policy for events we will not accept
    -  Need to cancel or update your event? Email with the link to your event and your changes
    -  Did you know that you can click on your organization or venue names on your event listing to see how those pages look as well? If they don’t have your most updated mission, address, logo, or anything else get in touch so we can update them
    -  We do not approve events outside of normal office hours so submit your event sooner rather than later. Office hours are 9AM-5PM Monday-Friday.
