How To Be a Featured Event!
Culture Days wants to brag about you! We are always looking to highlight exceptional and exciting programs. With thousands of events being registered leading up to the Culture Days Weekend, you’ll want to make sure you get the most out of our promotional opportunities. Here’s a few tips on how to be a Featured Culture Days Event:
- A picture’s worth a thousand clicks: the event photo you choose has the power to take your promotions to the next level. It should be eye-catching and not include any text (please don’t use Culture Days poster reproductions).
- Your event must be participatory! We want to see unique approaches to engaging audiences; this means hands getting dirty, music being made and attendees getting into the groove together.
- Make sure your event description is concise, snappy and compelling. Read some more tips on writing event descriptions here.
- Make sure your event is easy to share: let’s face it — social media is necessary to drive audiences. If you’re talking about your event on social platforms, we want to know! Be sure to tag @CultureDays in any posts (don’t forget your Provincial or Territorial Culture Days handles!) to show us how you’re engaging the public.
What will you get as a Featured Event?
Most importantly, your event is going to be flagged with a coveted gold star! This means that your event page will sprint straight to the front of our website, where you’ll be in good company with other exemplary events.
If your pictures are especially great, we’ll add you to our Featured Events Highlights on Instagram and our media highlight lists. We’ll also sing your praises on Twitter and include you in any Featured Events round-ups on other platforms.
