Yuck 'n Yum CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS (reminder) / June 24th

Good afternoon from YnY HQ,

Just to remind you that the deadline for submission to the Summer issue of YnY is this Sunday 24th June. As always, we very much look forward to receiving your submissions. We've added a wee reminder of 'How to submit' below, so please cast your eye over this before pressing send.

Also, by way of Guest Zine project update, many thanks to all who attended Michael Lacey’s zine launch on Saturday the 16th of June. The zine looks great and is available to purchase for a mere £2, we will announce stockists soon but in the meantime you can contact Michael directly to receive a copy, his email is Thanks to Leo Condie and MermaidS for putting on a smashing show for us and of course The Pipe Factory for letting us use their fantastic space. You can view pictures of the launch on our facebook page here. Val Norris is nearing completion of her guest zine and we are looking to launch this in Dundee during the summer, in the meantime here are a couple of images to whet your appetite!

Big love from YnY team

We invite anyone to submit work for consideration to

Yuck ‘n Yum is a not-for-profit group and the zine is free, so work is accepted on a voluntary (i.e. unpaid) basis. By sending us your work, you consent to our publication of it in print and online. Free paper editions are available at our launches, and are sent out to several galleries and distributors (see our list of distributors, below). PDF versions are always available online for you to print out yourself.

Yuck ‘n Yum is distributed as a physical on-paper zine, but is also made available in an online edition. You can submit a single piece that will be included in both editions, or you could take advantage of the internet medium to produce alternative work for online publication. Our print edition is entirely black and white, so you could, for example, provide an alternative colour version for the online edition. Alternatively, you could send us totally different media: an audio project, a short video or animation for example. It’s totally up to you.

Format guidelines: The printed image will be black and white, and quite high contrast - bear this in mind. Each page in the zine is A5. Images should be 300dpi resolution. We prefer to receive images as jpegs (if a photograph) or pngs (if a line drawing). If you send us something low-res and we want to include it, we will probably get in touch to ask you for a high-res version before the zine goes to print. Written articles should be saved in a format compatible with Microsoft Word. If you are interested in submitting a sound piece or video work for the online version we would prefer audio work in mp3 or ogg format, and video work as a Quicktime mp4/mov file or ogg.  

The deadline for our Summer issue is the 24th of June 2012.
