Here’s the e-mail we sent out earlier today:
Dear PZS Supporters,
We’ve got a couple major announcements for you! First, are winning artwork for PZS 2010 has been chosen! Our winning artist is Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg and you can view the poster here, but if you check Portland Zine Symposium website, you’ll see her fabulous work has been applied to our website’s design!
Thanks to all who submitted artwork for the 2010 poster art call, it was a challenging design to pick the work to represent the convention this year. We would also like to announce that a close second was artwork from Brian Kaas, so we plan on making a special edition button from his submission, to be available at PZS, as well as printing his poster art on the back of the program.
Now here’s the news you’ve been waiting for!
Registration for the 10th annual Portland Zine Symposium
will open up at 4pm (PST) today, April 6th.
When you register, be on the lookout for a special question in your form, “Would you like to preorder a Special Edition, 10th Anniversary Program?” It adds just $1 to your donation total and ensures you will get the guaranteed-to-be-popular, zine style program we’re cooking up to help commemorate our 1th anniversary!
Also, remember that we’re moving from the Smith Ballroom to PSU’s Main Gym this year. This means more space and more tables! It also means that PZS has to pay a ton more money to book the space. You can support us a variety of ways, but this year we’ve adding some special gifts for supporters able to contribute donations. You can check out the donation levels here and you can donate just by clicking here!
As always, we love help at the event, too. Volunteers at the event get cool things like t-shirts and our undying gratitude.
