Calling Polkapocalyptic Volunteers   10.03.12

The Polkapocalypse is fast approaching and our survivalist militia needs volunteers to help us prepare and host the undead horde that will occupy SPACES on Saturday, November 3rd.

All metaphor aside, we need volunteers for our benefit. Prior to the benefit we'll be working on decorations, cataloging and hanging artwork, and soliciting donations of food and money. During the benefit we'll need people to help staff check-in, check-out, coat check, the auctions, food tables, and other various areas.

If you volunteer up to 4 hours, you will receive one free ticket to the Polka Party (8 p.m.).

Please complete the form below and pitch in to help out SPACES! Once you submit the form, we'll be in touch as soon as we are able.

Polka Zombie Contest   09.13.12

With the impending Polkapocalypse (http://www.spacesgallery.org/events/polkapocalypse-11-03-2012), SPACES' Annual Benefit and Art Auction, we announce a call for polka zombies. Channel your Czech-Polish supernatural powers into depicting a polka-dotted ghoul, a zombie barmaid, or even an undead James K. Polk. Entries may be drawings, paintings, digital manipulations, or photographs of your awe-inspiring make-up skills—any medium that can translate into a 2-dimensional jpg.

A panel of local bloggers and luminaries will jury all entries and announce a new semi-final winner each week in October starting October 10th. Keep in mind, that your entry is only considered for the week it comes in. Avoid being part of a massive Oct 24th pile-up and enter early and often! Weekly winners will receive one free general admission ticket to the benefit (8 p.m. – 1 a.m.) where one final winner will crowned Zombie King or Queen and claim the grand prize of a package of original art (of his/her choice), a gift card to a local merchant, and spooky surprises from beyond.

The (un)deadlines are:
Week 1: October 3rd | Winner announced: October 10th
Week 2: October 10th | Winner announced: October 17th
Week 3: October 17th | Winner announced: October 24th
Week 4: October 24th | Winner announced: October 31st

All entries must be emailed in JPG format to submissions@spacesgallery.org by the (un)deadlines listed above. All submissions must include the following information:

Name:
Mailing Address (street, apt. number, city, state, zip):
Phone:
Email:

By submitting the attached Material(s) and information, you acknowledge that you are at least 18 years of age and are the creator and copyright holder of Material(s), and grant SPACES unlimited, non-exclusive rights to publicly exhibit/perform and make publicly available digitally the Material(s).

FAQ

Q: How old do I have to be to enter?
A: At least 18 years of age at the time of submission.

Q: How many times may I enter?
A: As many times as you like, but don't kill yourself over this (even if you think you'll rise from the dead).

Q: Does it have to be just one zombie?
A: You can depict a murder (herd? clutch? coven? pod?) of zombies if you like, but there must be at least one. Heck, it doesn't even have to be formerly human. Bring on the undead raccoons and cats!

Q: Must I include a polka theme?
A: Yes! It is the Polkapocalypse after all. But we use the term "polka" very loosely and welcome puns, wordplay and creative rule bending.

Q: Do you have to enter every weekly contest?
A: No -- for example, if you miss the first week, enter the second, or third. Just be sure to enter by the final deadline on October 24 to be considered for both the general admission ticket and the grand prize package.

Q: If I apply in time for a deadline and don't win, is that same work considered for all future deadlines?
A: Nope. Sorry. You may resubmit the same work, but it won't carry-over. These aren't your unused mobile minutes.
