Listing Image Tips     

      

A picture says a thousand words, so make sure your image choices are engaging and reflect the content of your event. Your images must be the correct specifications below or they will be rejected. 

Guidelines for all images: 

  • JPEG files only
  • No text or logos 
  • No mosiac/collage images
  • Web Image/s - These must be minimum of 600 pixels high x 800 pixels wide (4:3 landscape format) and under 2MB in size. 
  • You can supply one main image and up to four further images for your event listing on the WAF website. 
  • Hi-res image for print and PR (optional) - must be a minimum of 2000px wide and under 4MB in size (landscape format).

How to crop an image

 

Example of common listing image mistakes:

  • We ask you don't use text in your images as often it doesn't format well as a listing image and either gets cut off or is too small to read (as seen above!)

  • Please don't mosaic images - listing images are much more successful if they are just one photo that is representative of the event

Example of a successful listing image:

  • One photo which accurately represents the event

  • High quality image

  • No text

Tips for writing great event listing text

Your listing should:

  • Start with a few sentences of clear description of what your event is e.g. Sunshine Express is a 60 minute musical theatre performance or Roots is an exhibition of artwork by 10 painters.
  • An introduction to you as a creative/creatives - context to the work/inspirations, awards won etc.
  • Listing text should ideally be written in 3rd person.
