11 killer event header images that work
Minimalistic, mouth-watering and straight to the point - everything you can expect from a Japanese-themed supper club. High resolution pictures of food simply work a treat for any food event.
2. Sports: Candlelit Gong Bath
High resolution pictures of the venue work great for sports events: participant can get a feel for how intimate or social the event can get. Bonus points for finding a picture with people performing the exercises from the day.
3. Music: Eleanor Friedberger + Chris Cohen
Most of the bands have beautiful high resolution band photos. Use them. If you have a beautiful poster for the event, use the part without the text on it, or paste it in the event description. Band photos always work the best.
4. Entertainment: Murder Mile Walks
This image works in many ways: it's social, it shows that people are having fun together, it's high resolution (always best!) and it shows exactly what this event is about. Bonus tip: if you have a series of recurring events on the same topic, you only need one great image. This makes your events more recognisable.
5. Night Out: The Blitz Party
Crowd shots, action shots & party shots work best for nightlife events. People want to have a glimpse of what they're into at the party. Hire a good photographer for your next party and you'll have an unlimited amount of great high resolution images for more parties to come. Bonus tip: use other images of the venue, attendants & artists to create even deeper experience of your party.
6. Theatre: Flamenco Blues
Give the participants a preview of what to expect from your theatre experience: a shot of the stage in performance or a performer in full costume works the best.
7. Arts: London Design Festival
Get creative, go crazy - it's an event dedicated to arts, you have so many possibilities for illustrating your event, and chances are, you have a ton of great high resolution images. This is one type of an event where a lot of texts works as well, as long as the event is dedicated to type.
8. Outdoors: North End Road Autumn Market
Hosting an outdoors event? Choose a header that showcases the location you're hosting an event at: get the pictures of previous events if you have any, or find a good high resolution image of the area or particular venue.
9. Conference: ad:tech
Text and graphics work great for conferences when you have a recognisable branding and logo. But, as always, make sure that the image comes in high resolution and fits the format of the event page you're uploading it to.
10. Courses: London Terrariums
If your course is about creating something physical, you probably want to use the picture of a physical product, like this example shows you. Is it about audience participation? Show the audience. If it features a recogniseable speaker - go with the picture of the speaker.
11. Charity: Singing for Syrians
This picture for the Singing for Syrians charity works wonders as it shows the group that's most likely going to benefit from the charity proceeds.
