| April 2018
Flowering bulbs, rising temps, blue skies. Ah, Spring! Time for sprucing up the yard, the house and... your FestivalNet event listing! We are all visual, so events that get noticed have current, well-executed images. While we can't help with your house or yard, we are doing something for your event listing. You won't want to miss this month's article, below.
'The law is the way to hold your government accountable for your protection,' Yasmeen Hassan, Global Executive Director, Equality Now
Tweetable, right? Not only that, it's a motivating principle behind the work of Equality Now. Find out more about how this non-profit uses the law to help create justice for all, below.

Impression, Impact, Interest!
By FestivalNet's Dynamic Duo Marisa & Julie
That's what we want to help you create with someone's very first look at your listing! While it may be trite, it's also true: you never get a second chance to make a first impression. And, your event listing reaches thousands of your potential audience every day with 1,000,000+ views of FestivalNet each month!
So, we're sprucing things up with an exciting website improvement. The size of every single event image, everywhere on the site will be increased next week. If you've already uploaded an event photo, great! It will have even more impact now.
Events with no photo will be assigned a default image. We've spent hours handpicking good shots for this project, but a great photo from your specific event would be even better! While your event logo is fine, a picture of activities, performers, artists, crafters, vendors or attendees enjoying your festival has a greater impact.
Some tips for getting great shots, even if you're a beginner:
- Shoot non-stop from set-up to pack-up and even what was left behind. Capture entertainers and their audience's reactions. Shoot the parades, the crowds, the landscape. Consider how the mood changes from day to night and get some evening shots.
