WHY FEBRUARY IS THE MOST HORRIFIC TIME OF YEAR

Los Angeles, CA, February 1, 2013 – The third annual Women in Horror Month is now upon us with dozens of ambassadors and events! WiHM is a part of the Viscera Organization, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, and aims to simultaneously support and celebrate underrepresented female artists in the horror genre across the globe while educating the public on the impediments that female artists face.

While the festivities culminate in February of each year, Women in Horror Month also spotlights the creative endeavors of female artists all year long in articles, social media, and its brand-new podcast. Guests on the first episode include filmmakers Jovana Dimitrijevic, Rebekah McKendry, Rebekah Herzberg, and Tonjia Atomic, Sandra Katsuri from ChiZine Publishing, musician Ghettosongbird, Fem Furry and Meredith Widnoon of The Whorer Podcast, as well as Chelsea and Ava of La Petite Morgue.

Women in Horror Month February 2013 events take place both online (podcasts, interviews, blog series and discussions) and at actual venues, and include giveaways, artist gatherings, film screenings, and more. Women in Horror Month donates all proceeds to charity and all events feature the “pink kiss” WiHM Seal of Approval, created to ensure that all events, media, and online material are official and philanthropic. The WiHM Seal was graciously donated by Rue Morgue Magazine.

The full roster of 2013 sponsors include: ChiZine Publications, NikytaGaia Photography, Hot Chick Physics, Sourpuss, Diabolique Magazine, Rue Morgue Magazine, Too Fast Apparel, The Dark Art of Mike Vanderhoof, Ghettosongbird, Matt Orsman, Irene Langhorn, and Fangoria Magazine.

Press Release: Women In Horror Month

Women in Horror Month seeks female artists skilled at dark expression.

Los Angeles, CA, October 31, 2012 – WiHM watches in the shadows. Our non-profit organization embraces underrepresented female artists and exposes the prejudices that impede their rise in the horror genre. Throughout the year, we highlight female artists on our social media channels, blogs and articles. Our daily efforts promote the creative work of women in horror, gearing up for the festivities of February.

WiHM plans big for February 2013. Women in Horror Recognition Month will unveil awareness-raising media campaigns, such as a series of Public Service Announcements. WiHM will also promote events, such as film festivals friendly to the cause, throughout the month. Giveaways, artist gala events, short films, features and more—just wait until you see what WiHM has in store for all of you!

Get the Seal. The WiHM Seal of Approval was created to ensure that all events, media and online material are philanthropic. We provide the “pink kiss” graphic for your Web site or marketing materials. The seal is available for all events, websites and generated media. Get your fatal kiss and get it early! The Official WiHM Seal is donated by Rue Morgue magazine.
