Event Submission Guide

Submit your events for free to AroundIndy.com.

We invite you to submit your events to be listed on AroundIndy.com. If you have a confirmed date and location for your event, we will publish it for any location in Indiana, regardless of how far in advance. All event listings are published FREE without any cost or obligation, subject to our Acceptable Use Guidelines: aroundindy.com/acceptableuse.php.

SUBMIT YOUR EVENTS AS FAR IN ADVANCE AS POSSIBLE. We can't guarantee that every event listing submitted will be published. We have a very heavy workload: we've received over 180,000 e-mails and submissions in the past 12 months, typically 300-400 per day. If you wait until a day or two before the event to submit your event listings, there are so many submissions that we may not even see yours before the date of your event passes. We'll do our best to get last-minute event submissions listed; we just can't promise it.


NOTE: Before you submit, use the Search Box (near the top of most pages on our site) to search for your event. A number of event submissions we receive are already listed on our site.


Print this page for future reference. To avoid duplicate listings, please use only one of the following methods to submit your events.

EVENT SUBMISSION FORM

aroundindy.com/eventform.php

We give FIRST PRIORITY in data entry to events submitted using this form. Events submitted by any other method are processed after all event submission forms are handled. It is the preferred method; fastest and best way for single event submissions. For multiple events at the same venue, use email (see below).

SUBMIT VIA E-MAIL

Use this e-mail address: events [at] aroundindy [dot] com

Email is better for lists of events like shows, theatre dates, sports schedules, all the concerts at a venue, daily nightclub music schedules, etc. Also, use this email address to send QUALITY photographs, brochures, posters, flyers, rack cards, PDF files, JPG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and other images, or mail them to the address below. Text saved as an image does not qualify for publication.

SUBMIT VIA THE US MAIL

AroundIndy.com, LLC
1547 N State St, PMB 132
Greenfield IN 46140-1066

Send brochures, visitor guides, flyers, rack cards, printed event information, etc., via the US Mail. We're always looking for good, visually-appealing images to add to our site that publicize local events. Just mail these materials and we'll take care of the rest.

MICROSOFT EXCEL SPREADSHEET

Send long lists of events in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet as an attachment to an email message (sports schedules, recurring event listings, etc).

MICROSOFT WORD DOCUMENTS

Send press releases and news articles and other such Microsoft Word documents as an attachment to an email message.

NO TELEPHONE CALLS

Sorry, no event submissions by telephone. This is simply to ensure the accuracy of your listing. There is too much risk for mistakes, misspellings, or transcription errors when we take information over the phone!

Checklist of Things to Include

      1. Name of Event
      2. Description of Event
      3. Day(s) of Week, Time(s) or Hours of Operation, and Date(s) of Event
      4. Venue, location and/or address of event
      5. Price for Tickets (if any), or is the event free?
      6. Any deadlines (registration, advance ticket sales, etc.)
      7. Contact Person, Phone Number, and E-mail address
      8. Complete Web site address for more information
      9. Any other details you want to provide
      10. Attach a JPG, GIF, or PNG photo or image that summarizes the event, if possible. Posters and flyers on our Feature Stories page are chosen from such submissions. The larger the better (at least 750px wide, 72 dpi or higher). We will optimize to fit our space. Use of submitted images is not guaranteed.

We welcome submissions for almost any event that is open to the public anywhere in the state of Indiana.

What We Do Not Publish

Generally speaking, several of the categories listed here would result in so many event listings that (1) we wouldn't have time to post them all, (2) we wouldn't get anything else done for trying to keep up with these listings, and/or (3) they would flood our Web site to the extent that our other event listings would be virtually unreadable. Hence, we do not publish:


NOTE:
We reserve the right to decline to list any submitted event for any reason without notice. All event submissions are subject to our Acceptable Use Guidelines.
