Frequently Asked Questions

How do I submit?

We only accept submission through our web form. The guidelines are on the submission page, please include your name/artist handle and a description of your work when you submit. We will not accept submissions via any other means.

 

How many times can I submit?

You may submit more than one piece but we ask for no more than three. You are welcome to submit part of a project and explain the project in the submission description, we can always ask you for more work.

What is a Zine?

A zine is a publication, often exclusively online, about a particular (often unconventional) subject written/curated by people who are interested in that subject rather than by professional journalists. Our zine is closer in concept to a photobook than a typical magazine but we use all these terms interchangeably because it lies between them.

 

What is in the zine/at exhibitions?

Art! All sorts of art, all styles, all mediums. We hope to showcase underrepresented art and reclaim the word weird to be used in the celebratory manner that it should.

 

When/where is the zine available?

The zine is available to buy online. Printed zines will also be available at exhibitions.

I am in the zine; Do I receive compensation?

We are not currently in the position to offer compensation for works submitted. To be able to compensate all of the successful artists we would have to charge a fee for every submission which conflicts with our ethos of accessibility. The whole aim of what we do is to offer free opportunities to underrepresented artists that struggle to access the creative industry through traditional channels. We are not here to take advantage of anyone and if you feel this is unfair please know, we don't make any profit. If you wish to discuss this further we are happy to talk to you privately.

 

I am in the zine; will I get a free copy?

All contributors receive a digital copy of the zine. Print copies are available via the website.

 

Do you do exhibitions?

It is something we have done and will do, but currently do not have any upcoming exhibitions. See our exhibitor information page for details on other aspects of exhibition.

 

Do you sell art online?

Nope. We hope to offer this in future but don’t currently offer this service.
