A big congratulations to Jordan Monsell, the winner of the first ever Fringe Design contest! We had a lot of really great entries and want to give a big “Thanks!” to everyone who participated. It went better than we could have possibly imagined!
We received well over 100 design concepts from over 30 talented designers and it was a very difficult choice, but in the end, Jordan’s vision for the 2013 Guide Cover won over the Fringe staff. In addition to the $499 prize, Jordan will be employed as the lead designer for 2013, helping to design T-Shirts, the Fringe Button, the remainder of the Fringe Guide, and a bunch of other things. You can get your first look at the 2013 Festival Guide by checking out Jordan’s winning design here.
Fun fact: Jordan was the director of the popular Pulp Shakespearefrom the 2011 Festival (his past participation in the festival wasn’t a consideration when choosing him as the winner, but we thought it was pretty cool that it turned out that way!)

Q&A part 2

Do you have to register to be a part of the social space?

  • Entertainment for fringe community, you don’t need to be part of the fringe to be cabaret. We’ll talk more about this later…. 

Questions are over, go get your wrist bands.

11PM

Q&A

Do I have to be affiliated with a company? - Carmen - Program is “The Hike”

  • No, you can just use your name for that. Doesn’t need to be official company

Did you ever get around to coding in Pay what you want?  - Greg Crats

  • On the list, I promise

You have to book a venue on the site? That conflicts with what the venue manager said about bringing a check? Clooney Something(Sorry)

  • So that we know you have a venue, there is a digital shaking of hands with your project and your venue through a series of emails. Contracts/Checks etc will probably be handled in person/directly. Up to venue/contract when venues want money.

How many performance dates are in that time? - Vanessa

  • 24 hours in a day, no limit to performances (except 12th). So every day, no restrictions

The 12th is a non performance date? Are there performances on the closing party day? - Alex 

  • During that night there are awards, so you may book a show at that time but you might not want to. Might be a trade off. 

Are you going to bring back participant sponsored awards? - Greg Crafts

  • Yes. We’ll talk more about awards later.

Are there panels that are going on as well? And could a company sponsor/host a panel?Graham - Iama Fest

  • Absolutely there are panels that are going on. You’ll find a lot of friendly venus that will host your panel for you (we sometimes host at no rent) So email us with your idea. We encourage panels and workshops

Is there tech week? or tech day? Lauren (musical: Sinking)

  • Depends on your venue. Ask them on their policy. Probably not a week though

Can we change the ticket prices per night? Joanna - the polka musical

  • Yes, absolutely. Ticketing pricing is done on a performance by performance basis.
11PM

Why do we do this?

To build a community of activists artists to break the barriers and try new things

Opportunity to cross-pollinate and build a real audience of theatre in Los Angeles

To be supportive of other artists 

NO JERK PANTS
