IPRC Zine Machine call for zines

29 Apr

The Independent Publishing Resource Center in Portland, OR, needs some great mini zines to stock their zine machine! They’re doing an open call for submissions to the Zine Machine. The machine has eleven slots for eleven different zines at any given time and they plan to rotate the selection. If your submitted zine makes it in, the IPRC will print 50 copies of  your zine and box, 25 to be stocked into the machine and 25 for you to give to your friends, sell at Portland Zine Symposium, or whatever!

There are also four spaces to feature four boxes, so part of submitting your mini zine can also be making an eye-catching design for the outside of the box. There is no deadline for your mini zine submissions, as the Zine Machine will be an ongoing project with a rotating stock. Click for their blog for the template and more info. 

2012 Portland Zine Symposium wants your your artwork!

31 Jan

Hey zinesters!

The Portland Zine Symposium is looking for art submissions for the 2012 poster for the 12th annual Portland Zine Symposium. This year’s theme is “Sea of Zines.” Your art submission should be your creative interpretation of that theme.

They encourage artists to use any medium or style. They strongly prefer that the chosen artist is able to assist us in the process of transferring (resizing / cropping / etc) the image multiple mediums.

The formatting guidelines are simple:

– They are looking for a 11″ wide x 17″ tall poster that will also be used in other formats (the website, post cards, buttons, stickers, etc), so your design needs to be visible and striking at multiple sizes and resolutions (or have smaller, breakaway pieces).

– Only 3 colors! The design will eventually be silk screened / screen printed onto t-shirts, so limit your colors to black, white and one other color.

Your design should include (or be able to include once all details are finalized) the following:

– the theme –  Sea of Zines

– the dates – TBA (for now)

– the place –  Refuge 116 SE Yamhill

– the website  – http://www.pdxzines.com

– “12th Annual Portland Zine Symposium” and the year “2012”

– “A conference and zine social exploring facets of independent publishing and DIY culture.”

Submission deadline is February 25th.

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.
