Frequently Asked Questions

I submitted my event. What happens next?
Our staff will review and edit your submission. If it's appropriate for our events calendar, it'll go live on the site, probably within 4-5 business days. You will receive an email confirmation once your event has been reviewed.

Why wasn't my event selected?
More often than not, events that receive a "rejection" email have been turned down because they were already included in the calendar. We have many sources for our events calendar, so it's possible we already had your event in our system. Please search the calendar for your event before contacting our editor with further questions.

Please be aware as well that, due to the high volume of event submissions that we receive, we need 4-5 business days to review, edit, and post events to our calendar. It is possible, if you have not received an email confirmation about your event being accepted or denied, that it is still in the queue. Please give us four business days before contacting us to ask about your event. Your patience is appreciated.

How can I submit a photo?
If a good quality photo is available online, you may use our contact form to send us a link to the photo. Please note that by sending us a photo or a link to a photo, you are indicating that you have the rights to distribute and publish the photo.

I submitted my event to your online calendar. Does that mean it will also be featured on the news or read on the air?
Submissions to the calendar are not forwarded to show producers and reporters. Please pitch your story idea directly to the newsroom via this contact form. You may also contact our Corporate Sponsorship department if you are interested in underwriting broadcast promotions for your event.

I hear events being announced on KPBS Radio all the time. Are those coming from this online Events Calendar?
The online Events Calendar is not associated with our broadcast announcements. Some of the events you hear about on the air come from our corporate sponsors. Others arise out of our partnerships with various community organizations such as local film festivals. We do not air PSAs on KPBS Radio or KPBS TV.

How do I submit a correction?
Send the KPBS calendar team an email. Please make sure to include the title of your event.
