Portland Zine Symposium Friends,
PZS is looking for art submissions for the 2009 poster. These year’s
themes are cats, 9 lives, and “Hang in there!” Your art submission
should touch upon one or all of these themes.
The guidelines are simple – We are looking for a 11″ wide x 17″ tall
poster that will also be used in other formats (the web, post cards,
buttons, stickers, etc), so your design needs to be visible and
striking at multiple sizes and resolutions (or have smaller, breakaway
pieces). The design will eventually be silk screened / screen printed
onto t-shirts, so limit your colors to black, white and one other
color. We encourage artists to use any medium or style. We strongly
prefer that the choosen artist is able to assist us in the process of
transferring (resizing / cropping / etc) the image multiple mediums.
Your design should include:
– the theme
– the dates: July 24th, 25th, 26th (AWAITING CONFIRMATION from PSU)
– the place (Portland State University Smith Memorial Ballroom)
– the website (www.pdxzines.com)
– “9th Annual Portland Zine Symposium”
– “A conference and zine social exploring facets of underground
publishing and DIY culture.”
Submission deadline is February 25th. Submissions can be emailed to
email@example.com, mailed (to PO Box 5901 Portland, OR 97228-5901),
or dropped off at the IPRC.
Thanks in advance to all who submit, we look forward to seeing
everyone’s creative designs!
