Wellington Zinefest have announced the Best Of The Fest Award on their blog here.
Potroast #10 is one of the five runner’s up.
Awarded for the high quality materiality of the zine and as a nod to having printed our 10th issue.
Also awarded as a runner up is Lucy Meyle with her publication All Messages Play Back. Lucy contributed to the Potroast Comics issue. Her work is beautiful; using high quality paper she explores abstract ideas with an experimental take on comics. lucymeyle.com/
We had a great time at the Wellington Zinefest. It was a fabulous event testament to the fabulous Zinefest Committee in Wellington. Mighty Mighty was a great, welcoming venue.
We sold out of Issue 10, just a week after it was launched. It was a great success. Most people who picked up an issue and flicked through it, bought one. A huge thank you to our contributors for your excellent work, you encouraged many people to buy Potroast!
What an amazing night!
Thank you to all those involved! All our contributors, performers, speakers, Auckland Libraries, Hearts Content Catering, and to everyone who came to the event to celebrate the launch of Issue 10 – only 30 copies left!
We will begin with wine and nibbles including prawn sushi sandwiches, egg rolls and baked salmon.
Followed by performances and talks from:
