VPA ListServ Format Guidelines

Requested postings NOT following the following guidelines will not be approved.

1. When posting, the subject line of your email MUST follow this order:
TALENT or CREW or ALL - LOCATION - Your message - Paid or Unpaid / Cost or Free

TALENT - Richmond- Casting VCU Student Film, Paid
CREW - Hampton Roads- Crew Call for episodic TV series, Paid

CREW - Fairfax- Intern needed for casting office, Unpaid
CREW - Staunton- Lighting equipment needed, $500 budget
ALL- Virginia - Contact your Representative about how you love VPA and VFO

2. No personal signatures/information on the posting anywhere, except basic contact information (name, email, phone number).

3. URL shortener services like bit.ly and tinyurl.com are increasingly abused by spammers and malware, so please do not include these types of links in your posts as they will likely not reach subscribers. If you want to get your message into recipients' inboxes you should refrain from using them and instead include the full direct URL.

4. Follow the Do's and Dont's in the red column to the right.


  • Make sure you're up-to-date on membership fees. Postings must be from VPA members current on their dues.
  • Make your post factual and relevant to the film & TV production communities in Virginia.
  • Include proper contact information to be included to verify your membership. No anonymous postings allowed.
  • Use a non-Gmail account. Due to an embedded default in Gmail postings, submitters will not see their own posts. To fix this quirk, you can simply register another email to view your posting.


  • Postings relating to states outside of Virginia are likely to be declined unless in the MD/DC Metro area.
  • Posts cannot be primarily for purposes self-promotion. Posts seeking funding are likely to be rejected.
  • Casting calls for theatre are likely to be rejected.
  • Correct submissions will be posted as soon as possible. Please do not inquire after a posting until 24 hours have passed.
  • Egregious and repeated spamming may lead to banning.
  • The VPA reserves the right to decline any posting.
