2013 marks the 13th year of the annual Portland Zine Symposium! We have gone through some growing pains, these past four years especially, and we are working very hard to keep the event as affordable as possible for attendees while maintaining the size and scope that symposium fans have come to expect despite the exponentially increased costs of space.
This event would not be possible without the generous help and support of the Portland and zine communities. It is because of the community of local businesses and organizations here in Portland (and beyond) that we are able to organize a successful event each year.
There are lots of ways to help Portland Zine Symposium.
Direct monetary donations go toward paying for our venue, purchasing promotional materials such as stickers, t-shirts, and posters for the event, and covering any other expenses that the symposium incurs. Please consider donating to us.
A sponsorship of the Portland Zine Symposium will raise awareness of your business among our 1,000+ participants. Any type of sponsorship is wonderful, from discounts on stickers, to providing food for one of our outreach events, to hosting an event, and would be greatly appreciated.
You will be prominently thanked for your donation in our programs, here on our website, and during the convention… If your donation is food, you also will be thanked on posters hanging in the food area.
In addition, the Portland Zine Symposium is a 501c(3) non-profit organization, so your donation will be fully tax deductible! We will happily provide our Federal Tax ID Number upon request.
We are very grateful for any donation you are able to make. Our event’s success depends on your generosity! If you’re able to contribute, please contact Katie Ash…
