Critic's Choice Submission Guidelines

We welcome your suggestions for events to highlight in the critic’s choice of campus events, which serves as the home page for the campuswide calendar of events. Here's how to suggest a highlight:

First, be sure to submit your event for publication to the UC Berkeley Calendar Network using the online form. That way, the event will be publicized even if it is not chosen for a highlight. Events are chosen for critic’s choice based on their appeal to a wide audience and on the prominence of the speakers in their fields. Events selected for highlighting must take place on campus.

Use the online event submission form and if you want to request that it be a critic’s choice highlight, make sure to submit the event at least four business days before the event takes place. When you come to the section of the submission form entitled "Calendars That May Publish Your Event," you will find a sentence asking if you would like to recommend your event as a critic’s choice highlight. Click the adjacent checkbox to make this request. As you fill out the remainder of the form, make sure to include a 2-3 paragraph description of the event and any important details such as a brief speaker bio, registration costs, and URL for more info.

The selection of what events to include in critic’s choice is first-come, first-served, and if a day already has several highlights scheduled, future submissions may be declined. Descriptions will be edited. You can also use the online form to include a digital image illustrating the event.

NOTE: Succinct submissions, rather than lengthy press releases, are preferred.
