Join us in celebrating the best holiday of the year: Captain Picard Day!
You can view the inspiration here: http://www.youtube.com/
Once again, we will be holding an art contest and show to honor the man, the myth, the legend: Jean Luc Picard. As always, it will be completely free to enter and attend. Since I know all of you will want to spend Captain Picard Day with your families and loved ones, this year we are celebrating it the week before, on First Thursday June 6th.
If you want to submit art for the contest, great! Like I said, it’s free to enter, and there will be hundreds of dollars worth of prizes.
Rules for entry -
1. In order to submit you have two options: You can drop it off at Floating World Comics between Saturday June 1st and Tuesday June 4th. If you mail us artwork please label your package ‘Attn: CAPTAIN PICARD DAY’
2. Attach a label or index card to the back of your art with the following contact info: your name and phone number or email address. If the art is for sale include a price (Floating World takes a 1/3rd commission on art sales), or write NFS (not for sale).
3. We start hanging the art show on Wednesday June 5th. If you bring artwork in the day of the event (Thursday, June 6th) we cannot guarantee good placement. I REALLY RECOMMEND BRINGING IT EARLY, but late entries may be accepted.
4. All artists will have the option of selling their art through FWC. Sales are cash and carry, meaning after the prizes are awarded at 9pm, art will be sold directly off the wall. It is important to include your contact info so you can receive payment.
5. All art that does not get sold at the event will be displayed in store through the month of June (if you want it to, that is. If you would rather hide your art in a cave where no one can see it, that’s your business). You are responsible for claiming your artwork anytime before June 30th. Unclaimed artwork after July 1st is considered a donation.
If you don’t want to submit art, but you do want to attend the event… ummm… just show up between 6 and 10 and look at the arts. It is pretty straightforward. But you should really submit some art! Last year I gave out prizes just for submitting stuff! Maybe this year I will do that again!
