HOW TO ADD EVENTS
Who Can Add Events?
Anyone can submit events to the FYI Los Alamos Event Calendar, with the exception of those promoting religious or political events.
When you submit an event, our moderators must approve it before it goes live. We try to keep most events on this calendar limited to those that are happening in Los Alamos, New Mexico (with some exceptions). If you are a cultural provider or host lots of events in Los Alamos, consider becoming a registered Event Contributor (more details below) so your events are automatically approved.
How Do I Add an Event?
Navigate to the FYI LosAlamos Event Calendar at fyilosalamos.com. It’s the homepage of this website. Directly above the calendar, and to the right, click on the 'Add Event' button. You may alternatively 'Sign in.' At the bottom of the dialog box you'll see a prompt, "New here? Sign up." Fill out the respective information to create your account. Then, fill in the event details using the pop-up dialog box. You will receive an email confirmation that your event was submitted, and another when it was either accepted or denied. If you need to make an edit after you submitted it, please contact us at 505.662.8105 or email email@example.com.
How Can I Become an Event Contributor?
If you represent an event programmer or cultural organization in Los Alamos County, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your details, after first registering. Your events will then be automatically approved and appear immediately on the calendar.
Tips & Suggestions
Add a 'Featured Image' to your event to draw more attention. The optimal image size for the Featured Images are 1080 x 1080 pixels wide.
List event details in the body of the event post, versus linking to another page. Links to websites and PDFs should only be used for additional information, but viewers should receive the bulk of the information in text format just by visiting the FYI Los Alamos Listing.
Start the event description with the event details as opposed to reiterating the date and time, which should already be visible in the event listing.
Take advantage of "Categories" to help people search for events. Does your event appeal to Visitors to Los Alamos County? If so, please make sure to mark the "Visitor" Category prior to submitting.
