Deadline April 15, 2009. To charlis@actarizona.com.
Press releases, etc. are always welcomed.
eveNT suBMissiON guideliNes (eMAil ONly):
Due to the demand for listing events, we have set the following guidelines. We hope that these will clarify our criteria.
1. spa Aaabt:
We simply cannot list all the events we receive. We reserve the right to select appropriate event listingsand when space is tight, we will give first priority to those who partner with us.
2. lnth:
25-30 words in length or 180 characters. This should include the necessary information such as event title, date,venue, brief description of event, admission and public contact number for further information. The name of the city is notincluded in the word count.
3. Tp:
Tourism / Visitor related... typically this leaves out charitable events and events that would draw from only the partici-pants’family, friends and like demographic reach, unless these have a particularly “western”or Arizona theme.
Events to be e-mailed to
