Portland Zine Symposium 2010 Poster Art Call

PZS is looking for art submissions for the 2010 poster. This year's theme is "Zine Arcade" 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: Zine Arcade!

-the dates: August 28th-29th 2010

-the place: Portland State University Gysmnasium 

- the website (www.pdxzines.com)

- "10th Annual Portland Zine Symposium"

- "A conference and zine social exploring facets of independent publishing and DIY culture."

Submission deadline is March 15th. Submissions can be emailed to pdxzines@gmail.com (most strongly preferred), mailed (to PO Box 5901 Portland, OR 97228-5901), or dropped off at the IPRC.

I'd love to attend the "how cheap is too cheap ?" thing

No matter where it was discovered, that's still pretty awesome. It really reminds me of the first zine I stumbled upon in a comic book shop as a teen back in 1986. (Yeah, 1986... I'm that old.)
