Criteria for Submissions
Submitting information about an event
We will consider featuring an event, website or organisation on the Greenbelt Blog if one or more of the following criteria are met:
- If the feature concerns Greenbelt, its festival, or associated events
- If the feature concerns the activity of a Greenbelt contributor (past, present or forthcoming)
- If the feature is particularly applicable to Greenbelt’s mission or ethos, or of particular interest to those interested in the faith, arts or social justice aspects of our work
- If the feature is of particular interest to our current or past campaigning activity
- If the feature publicises an event which will be attended by more than 50 people
We are unlikely to feature a suggestion if any of the following are applicable:
- If the feature publicises an event for less than 50 people
- If the feature publicises an event or concept in opposition to Greenbelt’s mission, ethos and values
- If the feature is damaging – either in competitive terms or in ethos – to our contributors (past or present), partners, associates, sponsors, volunteers or other Greenbelt-associated individuals
- If the submitted material doesn’t contain enough information about the feature, or does not follow the formatting rules below
The blog moderators retain the right to feature or not feature submissions on the Greenbelt Blog as they deem appropriate, as well as the right to edit copy to fit the tone and format of the Greenbelt Blog.
Submitting original content
We welcome reviews and creative responses to events, with the following criteria:
- We accept reviews or critical writing on arts, faith and justice events nationally and internationally
- Do not assume the reader understands technical jargon or an artist’s biography. Attempt to explain why the event moved you in the way it did – aim to provide a sense of the experience.
- Criticism must be fair and balanced – constructive criticism is fine, but invective or personal criticism is not.
- Keep reviews short and punchy
- We can publish poetry or creative writing, sound files, embed YouTube or Vimeo videos, and also post photography and imagery.
- You must hold all the copyright to your published work – Greenbelt accepts no responsibility for any copyright infringement, whether it is quoted text or music in the background of a video.
Beyond these criteria, you are free to respond in any way, again with the proviso that your content may be edited for length or tone, and that blog editors retain the right to publish or not publish as they deem appropriate.
