This category should be used for submission of Arts and Entertainment sites with multiple physical locations throughout the state. Subjects such as theater, art, photography, films, music, architecture, dance, libraries, and museums will be accepted.

Individual companies with a single office location DO NOT SUBMIT your site to this category. Please take a minute to identify the most appropriate locality and submit your site there. This is a Regional category and listings are made by location. Your location(s) must be shown, preferably by address and/or local phone number on your site.

This category is for sites covering Arts and Entertainment activities pertaining to the State of New York. Submit sites concerning theater, art, photography, films, music, architecture, dance, libraries, and museums, and having to do with professionals, performing arts venues, cultural events, institutions, performers and galleries. Sites covering multiple states should be submitted to a higher Regional level.

Most sites should be submitted to a locality. See the list of localities under the name of this state. However, some Arts and Entertainment listings may be accepted at the state level under certain conditions:

  • Entities with multiple offices or locations spanning several regions.
  • Entities or associations drawing members from the entire state.

Anyone submitting a site to this category must follow the following requirement and procedures. Submitting a site based in another locality may prevent listing in the directory. Every site listed is visited by the category editor for verification of adherence to the guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

Individual Entities with a single office location will not be listed here, and should be submitted to the appropriate locality, regardless of the areas covered.

Entities with multiple offices within a Region should be submitted to the appropriate region, if the offices are located in two or more counties in the region.

Entities with multiple offices within a county should be submitted to the appropriate county. To improve your chances of a successful submission, please observe the following guidelines:"

  • Submit each site only once.
  • Summarize the main features and the subject matter of your site in one or two short sentences or phrases.
  • Proof your description for spelling and grammar errors before you click on submit.

Any of the following will delay the review process:

  • Advertising hype
  • Excessive use of caps
  • Keyword stuffing
  • Lack of verifiable address
Please Note: Multiple submissions and other repeated attempts to circumvent the guidelines may lead to the banning of your site at the discretion of Dmoz Staff.

Title should be the name of the organization, band or web page. Please avoid using unusual punctuation or the words "Home Page", etc.
