    Hoping your participation

    At the end of a poster which calls on students to prepare some performances, such as English poems, Short plays, etc. for an English Evening on Christmas Eve.
    Can I use 'Hoping your participation' at the end of the poster? Is it natural? Could you give some advice?

    'Hoping for your participation' would be better.

    Re: Hoping your participation

    Is 'participate on time' natural if it is written at the end of advertisement?

    And 'Looking forward to your participation' is more positive, in my opinion.

    As the event sounds quite informal, you could say 'Be there/get there on time/in good time'.
