A BROADSIDE BATTLE – CALL FOR ENTRIES
Winner takes all
How is it going to work? This Broadside Battle is a feature of an upcoming exhibition at Space 1026 in October. It will be a fierce, and most definitely humorous competition. This is part of a larger exhibition called Pumping Kill Mud Down the Drill Pipe featuring all kinds of collaborative printmaking. Work by Cannonball Press, Howling Prints, Drive By Press and more!
All broadsides must arrive by 5 pm on October 1 (by mail, bike or on foot)
Late entries will be flogged, and most assuredly ridiculed.
DO NOT BE LATE.
Your BROADSIDE will be entered into standard elimination rounds, and each week (or day depending on how many we get) the competition will be eliminated by a panel of judges. By the end of the exhibition there will be one winner who will receive all the BROADSIDES!!! We are going to be posting images on the website as the BATTLE heats up.
What is a broadside? A broadside is usually a public notice or advertisement printed on one sheet of paper.
What will you win? In this standard weekly elimination posters will be grouped into elimination rounds, each week
