Hey, Guys!
Welcome to the Art Edition of the Blurb of Bob! How about a round of applause for all the art and the artists who brought it to AfterBurn? In this issue, I’ve got photos of many of the art pieces, plus some Very Important Information about how you can make sure AfterBurn continues next year.

How ’bout that?

AfterBurn art in pictures

The Media team was undaunted by rain as they captured photos of the art at AfterBurn: Restoration. One dedicated member of the team even spent several hours in the Indaba, creating a painting of the art. Here’s a sampling of the results. Which one is your favorite?

Support #GivingTuesday to ensure the future of AfterBurn

GivingTuesday

From the Board of Directors of Burnt Oranges

Burnt Oranges, the nonprofit that put on AfterBurn: Restoration, needs your help to make sure our next event is just as spectacular. On #GivingTuesday, November 28, we’ll be kicking off our end-of-the-year fundraiser.

There are a couple of easy ways you can help Burnt Oranges continue to fund art and community action in Florida:

  1. Make a donation on Tuesday — if you use this link, donations up to $2M will be matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. There’s no fee or minimum; all the money goes to Burnt Oranges.
  2. Go to smile.amazon.com and designate Burnt Oranges, Inc. as your beneficiary. We’ll get 0.5% from each purchase, and it would cost you nothing.
  3. Can’t give on Tuesday? Just use the Burnt Oranges website to donate at a more convenient time! You can mail a check or come back later and give online.

Did you know that even with a contractor discount and no tax, this year’s effigy materials cost $1705.90?

Did you know that Burnt Oranges donated $8985 in community action grants during the event?

Do you know how much it costs to rent port-a-potties?

Please give Burnt Oranges your support on #GivingTuesday. And be sure to let all your friends know, too!


Afterburn 2017 #unfuckflorida volunteer patch

Send Bob your schwag photos

Hey guys, it’s Bob again! What was the most incredible gift you received at AfterBurn?  If it’s something you can photograph, I’d love to include it in my Cool Schwag blurb! Just snap a picture and email it to me: bob@burntoranges.org.

By the way, I think the most mind-blowing schwag this year was the #unfuckflorida volunteer patch. I got mine! If you didn’t get yours, be sure to send an email to ecteam@burntoranges.org with the shifts you worked and your mailing address.


Event feedback form still open for your input

The Event Coordination team is still looking for your feedback on AfterBurn. Do you have a thank you, an idea, or a suggestion to make the event better? Please use the Event Feedback form to tell us what you think. If you submit the form with your name, you’ll receive a thoughtful response, or you can submit your feedback anonymously.


I got my patch, sent in my event feedback, and set aside some bucks to donate to Burnt Oranges tomorrow. Now I can relax until the next Blurb. Be sure and send me those photos, especially the ones of your schwag!

How ’bout that?
Bob

Call For Photography

Announcing a call for photography for use in our new web site and printed materials. We’re looking for incredible imagery that will serve as the true content of our new web site. Whether it’s of large-scale art, images of burning projects, your art projects, your theme camp, or related to the artistic endeavors of the community, we’d love to see it. While we’d prefer that images were taken at the Central Florida regional events, if it’s related to art, building community, and our collective passions, send it.

Here are a few tips that should help us.

  • If your photos contain recognizable people, please have their permission, and ability to secure written permission for use before submitting.
  • Send up to 25 images in JPG format
  • Watermark the images across the image
  • For each photo please provide us with the photographer name, image creation date, location, image subject (name of art piece or persons in the photo) and if possible an image caption. If you’re a professional photographer and embed these in your file header great. If that sounded greek to you, just use the body of the email to include the information for each attached file.
  • For each image submitted, advise if it’s offered as a gift, creative commons with attribution, or copyrighted (filed copyright exists) image
  • Photos should be a minimum of 1920 pixels wide

Should we determine that we’d like to use one, or many of your images, we will contact you to determine proper licensing and use agreements. At no point will these photos be used without your express permission. At no point will these photos be sold.

As this is an ongoing project, there are no deadlines.

Until we can create a better method of submission with image upload and acknowledgement, please send your submissions to board@burntoranges.org

Thank you in advance for your contributions.
