Swancon 2001: PR2 part 1 of 3

The SwanCon 2001 (‘Masquerade’) Progress Report 2 is a single A3 page (printed back and front) page folded into an A4 booklet.

The front cover has the text “Things are not always what they seem” (although rather nicely laid out) as well as a rather fetching piece of artwork by Colin Sharpe which defies description. The back has the committee details, the web page, upcoming events (see below).

Art Show

We welcome all sorts of two dimensional- and three dimensional – fantasy, science fiction and horror art work for the Swancon 2001 art show. Pieces which address the convention theme ‘Things are not what they seem’ are particularly welcome.

Reproductions or prints from digitally created works are allowed, though only one of any particular piece may be hung. Please state on the entry form if the piece is an original or a reproduction. You may put up a notice on the displayed print advising that further copies are available.

Works judged by the art show staff to have libelous (as opposed to humorous) content in regard to known persons will not be accepted. Works of pornography can not be accepted, as this art show is open to the general public including minors. If you are in doubt as to whether your work is acceptable, please contact the art show staff in advance.
