We’re a little bit excited, ’cause it’s time for Semi-Permanent, Melbourne again. After SP Auckland last month and Sydney in March, the Semi-Permanent juggernaut makes its way down south, this Friday and Saturday at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
As usual, there’s an incredible range of speakers… among them, the animator Simon Allen from Pixar (yeah, we know, freaking PIXAR!), Leif Podhajsky (he designed the cover to Tame Impala’s album Innerspeaker in addition to heaps of psychedelic maths-y third eye expanding visuals that you can see in mags like Pilot and Monster Children), Timba Smits (the mastermind behind Wooden Toy magazine), Kelvin Ho (he’s a ‘retail architect’ but I have to confess, I know him more from perving at his house on The Selby) and so many more inspiring artists, designers, photographers and all-round superhuman creative types.
Although tickets are fast becoming scarce, we have managed to secure 5 free passes to give away. (Bless the cotton socks of those Semi-Permanent organisers, Andrew and Murray.)
Yep, amigos and amigas, you read that right. We’ve got five passes (valued at $310 each) to give away! If you want to go in the running to win, all you need to do is post on our Facebook wall and make us laugh. The five people who make us laugh the hardest… win! Easy as that. If urine is dribbled, we may even give you two passes.
In honour of the creative spirit of Semi-Permanent, we are making this a little bit free-form. Entries will not be restricted to words alone… you can draw a picture, record a video (why does nobody ever post wall videos using those great iSight cams that every computer has nowadays anyway?), heck, you could even get your Dad to enter on your behalf with some of his famous ‘wordplay’.
(Common sense reigns, we reserve the right to amend, modify or make up rules at our discretion. The only thing that’s guaranteed is that five passes will be given away!)
