Call for submissions: OCADU Zine Collective Fandom Zine

The OCADU Zine Collective is producing a collaborative zine about fandom, and they want your submissions!

callforsubs2017Submit your tributes to your favourite artists, stories about your experience as a fan of something, histories of different types of fandom, fan art, reflections on the “fanzine” or your own interpretation of the theme “fandom.”

We will accept images, fiction and non-fiction writing, comics, poems and more!

Submission guidelines:

Formatting: Each page of the zine will be 8.5 inches x 11 inches in size. Please format your submission to fit this size. Each page of your submission should be submitted as a separate file. Please leave at least a 1/2 inch border on every page, meaning images and text should be centered on the page and no larger than 7.5″ x 10.” Please provide us with high quality files, with at least 300dpi/ppi resolution.

The zine will be printed in two colours on the risograph. This means that each colour will need to be printed separately, one after the other with time to dry in between. If you would like to use both colours in your submissions, you can do one of the following: 1) submit each page as a Photoshop file, with each colour on a separate layer (max. two colours/layers). 2) Submit each colour as a separate PDF file. All of your files should be submitted in grayscale. Please title your files/layers as “lighter colour” and “darker colour” so that we know how you would like the contrast of the image to work.

Information needed: Please include a filled-out version of the the attached questionnaire with your submission

Feel free to email us with any questions you may have about formatting your submission(s) before the deadline. fandomquestionnaire1

Deadline: MAY 7th

Send submissions to: ocadzinelibrary@gmail.com

The OCADU Zine Collective thanks the OCADU Student Union for funding for this project.
