Posters:

Uploaded poster images must be the actual poster created specifically for the event. This needs to include at least the event/artist name, date & time of the event, and venue for the event or event series.

There are a couple of exceptions to this rule:
  • For film events its acceptable to use the generic movie poster.
  • For book launches its acceptable to use the book cover.
  • If there is no real poster being created for an event then a generic tour/artist poster can be used.
  • If the real poster is not ready at the time of event posting, a generic poster may be used until the real one is ready to be added later.
  • If an event has a ticket giveaway and does not have a poster the ValleyEvents.ca team may add generic poster or image at their discretion
A generic poster must be an actual poster template provided my the artist/performer/film company and at a minimum include text, typically the name of the film, event, or artist name. It can not be a generic picture or clip art and must look like an event poster. Typically generic posters are templates provided by artist/compnay with a blank spot at the bottom to fill in the event details specific to a single event.

Posters not meeting these rules will be removed.
