- "I represent an arts organization.
How do I submit an audition for posting on Eperformer.com?"
There are two ways to submit an audition:
The easiest way is to use the Submit
Listing feature. It is available from the Auditions menu on
every page. On the form that is displayed, select the audition category
and complete the other fields. Then, click on the "Submit"
button. Your browser displays a "Thank You" page if your
submission is successful.
Alternatively, if your audition listing is too complex to fit into
the form (or if for any reason you are experiencing trouble with the
submission form), you can submit a listing via E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you use this method, be sure to include complete information regarding
times, dates, locations, organization name, etc.
- "I filled out the submission form
and got the 'Thank You' message. Why doesn't my listing show up?"
Eperformer.com does not post your submissions immediately. Instead,
we try to confirm the legitimacy of each submission. For each real submission
we receive, we get several erroneous listings, blank forms, and pranks.
We think it creates a more valuable service to performing artists when
audition listings are more than just a "bulletin board" on
which anyone can post anything.
- "How often does Eperformer review and
Submissions are reviewed on an as-needed basis. That usually means that
listings are updated two to three times weekly. In some cases, when
traffic is heavy, they're updated more frequently.
- "Do you send E-mail notifications of
No. All audition notices that we have are posted in the various categories.
- "What does that map of the U.S.
mean next to an audition listing?"
When we started Eperformer.com, we served only Colorado and the
Front Range. As we began to expand, we identified any audition listing
outside of the immediate area with the map of the U.S. As we continue
to expand to be a more national service, the logo is becoming more superfluous
and, eventually, it'll go away. But for our loyal base of Colorado users,
it'll remain for the time being.
- "Eperformer.com says that it's 'Best
viewed with Internet Explorer.' Does that mean I can't use other browsers?"
No. When we add content to Eperformer.com, we test each page
with a variety of browsers, including Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator,
and Web TV. We've try to keep the design as simple and straightforward
to accommodate the widest range of browsers. But certain features simply
work better with Internet Explorer. So we recommend its use with Eperformer.com.
- "What do the red two-letter codes
adjacent to audition listings on audition calendars mean?"
Next to each listing on Eperformer.com audition calendars is
a red code. In most cases, it's a simple two-letter code and it represents
the state in which the performing arts opportunity exists. For example,
the code CO indicates that the audition
and the performing opportunity are in the same state (Colorado, in this
example). Where there are two codes listed, such as IL|UT,
the first indicates the location of the audition (Illinois) and the
second indicates the location of the performing opportunity (Utah).
In some cases, the second code may indicate multiple performing venues.
For example, the code FL|Tour indicates
that the audition takes place in Florida but the audition is for a tour
which covers two or more states.
- "Is it O.K. to include a link to Eperformer.com
on my web site?"
We'd love to have you include a link to Eperformer.com on your performing
arts web site or personal web page. All we ask is that you follow a
few simple guidelines to make sure
that the links continue to work. Find
