Artistic Directors! Executive Directors! Company managers! Marketing honchos! Keepers of theatre archives! Friends of the above!

 We have already begun work on this year’s Drammy Awards ceremony and to that end we are asking all of you who manage, run, own, or are otherwise directly or indirectly involved with a Portland theatre company or its archives (or have a friend who is thus involved and needs prompting!) to start sending us production photographs, please, for our pre-show slide-show!
Please start sending production photos (one per show)  as soon as you can (right now is great!) for ALL Drammy eligible shows that have either already happened or will have closed by mid-May 2014, in time to be considered for this year’s awards.  Please send them directly to our pre-show photo coordinator, Laura Faye Smith.  Her email address is laurafayesmith@yahoo.com We require ONLY ONE PHOTO PER DRAMMY-ELIGIBLE SHOW (your choice!). Please don’t send more than one of each.

If you have questions, you can please write to us here, or at pdxdrammys@gmail.com  But send the PHOTOS to Laura Faye.

 If you are unsure as to which productions to include, remember that all shows that are locally produced and have a minimum of 9 performances (not counting previews) in a single run (8 performances before Jan 2014) are probably eligible. You can check the shows we have considered so far on our website News Feed for Jan 22, 2014, December 10, 2013, and September 24, 2013. Go to http://www.drammyawards.org and click on News Feed.
Please make it clear which company you represent (and which show each photo represents) when you send these pictures to Laura Faye, so that we can check them against our little lists.
[And while we have your attention…A WARNING!
 Remember that we are returning to the system of pre-announced nominations this year. We will be announcing the nominations as soon as we can after our final decision-making meeting…announcements will probably be made and sent out via this email list, as well as sent to the press etc, on the Wednesday or Thursday after Memorial Day. We will be requesting, at that time, that you send photos of all shows or persons nominated to our coordinator (as yet to be determined!) for that nominees slide-show. We do hope that you will be willing to help us with a quick turnaround at that time.  Thank you in advance!]

But for now, just a single photo per production (one for each Drammy-eligible production) to laurafayesmith@yahoo.com

 Thank you so much.  We can’t wait to hear from you. We are jumping up and down with excitement already!
