Only genuine online entry links will be used, other website links are NOT accepted. See below.

Schedules, Entry Forms & Downloads.
To protect the interests of our advertisers & the safety of our users, schedules must be held on our own servers. This allows us to check all downloads for viruses or malware before making them available to the public.

If you use the event submission form the schedule & entry form can be uploaded with the event details, or you can email the documents when available.  

We take pride in the site & always try to provide quality information. Please send the original documents if possible, we can convert to PDF from most formats & will add a watermark to show where the document came from. Please try to send multi page schedules as one document, if not we will combine the pages.

Screens shots should be avoided if possible, out of focus uncropped photos will not be used.

If a schedule is amended, please send over the full replacement & the online version will be exchanged for you. The watermark will show V2, V3, etc & the dated amended.

Online Entries
If you are using a genuine online entry or booking system that allow people to submit entry & pay securely online, a link button will be included, providing the full link to the actual event is supplied. The full URL will include the unique event details.

Don't expect us or our site users to search for the event. www.equo.com, find us on Equo or similar will not be used. Do Not use an online entry link in place of the event details summary, this will not be accepted.

Finally!
The NFED is a trusted resource, so it is very important to keep the calendar up to date. If the details need to be amended or if the event is cancelled, please contact us by Email as soon as possible. Failure to inform us directly of any changes undermines confidence in the diary undoing our hard work. If this happens regularly, we may reject further events.

The free events section takes a lot of time to manage, so we really do appreciate each & every time that someone is pointed towards the NFED or an event is shared.
