Event Title, Description & Image Best Practices
The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus recognizes the importance of grammatical consistency and accuracy throughout its communications. Our editorial style for the central Communications Office is based upon the Associated Press Stylebook.
Please visit the Editorial Style Guide for exceptions and refinements to the AP Stylebook for CU Anschutz and see below for guidance specific to the University Calendar.
An event title alone generally won't get people to attend. Event descriptions should be as detailed as possible to properly convey what the event or activity is, who is organizing it, and why someone should attend. Provide as many details as necessary to generate interest.
Please proofread descriptions for proper grammar, spelling and style.
To maintain quality standards, only high-quality images are posted to the university calendar. If you don't have a unique image to include with your event posting, you may select one from the Photo Library. A fallback or default image for a department, group or place/location may be used in place of an event image if the event image that is provided doesn’t meet image requirements.
The following kinds of images are not permitted on the calendar:
