Best of the Fest – Runners Up

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/

Wellington Zinefest

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!
