Two local groups are looking for art/comics right now!
The Portland Zine Symposium is looking for art submissions for the 2011 poster. This year’s theme is “Postmarked 2011.” Your art submission should be your creative interpretation of that theme.
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 (or be able to include once all details are finalized) the following:
– the theme
– the dates (TBA)
– the place (TBA)
– the website (www.pdxzines.com)
– “11th Annual Portland Zine Symposium”
– “A conference and zine social exploring facets of independent publishing and DIY culture.”
Submission deadline is March 1st. Submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (most strongly preferred), mailed (to PO Box 5901 Portland, OR 97228-5901), or dropped off at the IPRC.
