I know it's been a long time since any communication has come from #Screeners
HQ. Well... it's been a bit crazy. Not bad crazy, just... crazy. So much so, that today I have to bring some unwelcome news.#Screeners
will be closing it's doors for a while.
Well... for the last 4 years, #Screeners
has been primarily a family run group: Myself, my wife and daughter and good friend Stew. The last 6 months has been a big time of change for all of us. Stew has taken on a new career. I have taken on a new business venture. The time we used to be able to put into #Screeners
has just not been there the way we would like.
When we started #Screeners
it was with the goal of NOT becoming one of those groups that was just a collector group or a dump for images that fit our theme. We wanted to promote the art and artists and celebrate the art of poster making. Over the last year, we have not been able to meet that goal, and have become what we least wanted to be. And so... we have decided until we could dedicate the time to the group and the artists again... we would close our doors.
We sincerely hope within the year to be back in the swing, and bring #Screeners
back to the dream we once had.
The saddest point of all for us, is having to cancel this year's Epic Movie Poster Contest. This contest has been such a labor of love for us, and to not hold it is disappointing to our entire staff. But... the treatments are written, and when #Screeners
re-opens - we will open it with a new and improved EMP Contest.
So... although we will no longer be accepting new submissions for the time being. We hope you will all keep the group on your members list. And.. from time to time go through the galleries, and fave the art, and visit the artists. #Screeners
has been blessed over the years to attract some of the most amazing poster and graphic artists on DA.
And don't write us off. We'll be back.
Thank you all for your love and support over the years.
We'll be seeing you
Rodney - Admin Director
