SUBJECT: Call for submissions
Support the Ottawa Comic & Animation Tsunami Relief Fund Calendar!
WANT TO HELP WITH THE TSUNAMI RELIEF FUND, but don't know how? Stone broke after Christmas, but want to lend a hand anyway? Don't have a creative bone in your body but have wads of cash you'd like to donate to a worthy cause?
How can you help? By providing any of the following:
Submissions of Artwork, black & white or colour reproductions for 1 time use in the calendar with full credit.
Artwork includes: paintings, cartoons, comics, animation drawings, photography, whatever. These can be either e-mailed to me in high quality scanned format (300 dpi please :-) or hard-copy/ photographs/ photocopies snail-mailed to:
S. Marsden & DragonHead Studio,
Box 618 Stn. Main
Stittsville, ON K2S 1A7
I would like to get the calendar layout done for this project and have it printed within the next three weeks, so unfortunately for those of you who would like to put together something new, you only have a 2 weeks to do it. My recommendation is to pick something that you have already done that you really like (that you feel is a strong piece) and submit that instead of trying to come up with something new.
I am also interested in poetry, quotes, brief writing, haikus, etc. from our literary talents. Please find a piece that you particularly enjoy, it CAN be a work that has already been published, as long as you hold the copyright, and submit it to me via e-mail/ snail-mail for consideration in the Calendar. Your work may be edited for length.
If you cannot provide artwork, or writing but would like to donate funds to this project, your help would be greatly appreciated. All of the money that is received will go to the production of the calendar and any extra monies will be donated to the Tsunami Relief Fund (Most likely The Red Cross.) You can write a cheque directly to me Suzanne Marsden & receive a receipt in return. As I'm doing this by the seat of my pants, I don't know if it's tax deductible or not.
You can also send $ via Paypal to my yahoo address: firstname.lastname@example.org . Please let me know in the subject line who you are and that your donation is for the calendar. My deepest thanks to anyone who wishes to help out in this manner. I am also going to be seeking advertizers to help provide funds to get this project printed & assist with distribution costs.
If you are a business that supports comics or animation (Art store, Animation studio, LCBO store) please let me know if you would be interested in advertizing and supporting the project. Your logo will appear in the comic and everyone will know that you care.
Another thing that folks can do to help is to spread the word. Please let other artists, writers and helpful patrons know about this project and put them in contact with me!
Suzanne Marsden email@example.com. We have THREE WEEKS, that's it. Spread the word! Spread it loud! Make Ottawa proud of its comic & animation community, its writers and artists (and patrons :-)
Thanks in advance for your help.
Submission deadline for all creative material: Friday January 21st, 2005
Financial support deadline: Monday January 31st, 2005
Cheers & all best,
