Hey friends,

A bit belated, but a post-zinefest update from us nonetheless. If you made it along last Saturday to the Wine Cellar and St Kevins Arcade, thank you for coming! We hope you had a good time; it seems the whole day was buzzing with excitement and networking and lots of zine-loving.

We've been pretty overwhelmed with the response we've had so far - everyone has been so supportive and positive, it's been really heart-warming to be a part of. So, again, sincere thanks from all of us.

If you would like to let us know what you thought of the event (good or bad - we encourage honest critique), you can fill out a confidential feedback form here.

We wouldn't have been able to put on Zinefest without the generous support of people such as super-hero K Road Business Association precinct manager Barbara Holloway (and the team), Peter from Alleluya Cafe (who lent us the space for the day), and Wine Cellar owner Rohan Evans. Not to mention all of the amazing volunteers who helped us leading up to, during, and after the event!

We managed to get a whole bunch of video footage from both the day event and after party, so we will keep you posted for when that is ready to be viewed.

The 'Zine of the Fest Award' was awarded to Ya-Wen Ho and Simon Fletcher (pictured above with the trophy, cake, and Tes) for their zine which can be viewed here.

In the meantime, you can check out the RIP IT UP photo gallery, and watch a video (below) made by Renegade House. Thanks heaps both of you guys for coming along and documenting the day!

Much love, and see you around!
