Hello and welcome to 2014, here at YNY HQ we are very excited about the new direction we will be taking in the coming year and will announce future projects in due course. In the meantime we'd thought we'd remind you about our Zine Idol opportunity - deadline 1st of February 2014.
To celebrate new beginnings we are offering the support, guidance, and £500 of seed money to bring your own self-published zine venture to fruition.
We are asking for groups of at least three or more people to write a proposal of how you envisage your zine. Yuck ’n Yum was a quarterly, black and white, 25 page, A5 zine with no theme – but you could pitch anything: a monthly two-page zine with a different theme each month, a full colour artists annual, or a zine full of exhibition reviews. Its entirely up to you, but we are particuarly interested in fresh, innovative ideas.
Interested? For full details of the project and our terms and conditions please go to http://zineidol.yucknyum.com/ however here is a summary of what we need from you by the 1st of February 2014.
- A proposal for your zine, no more than one side of A4. Be sure to mention what form you envisage the zine would take. What is it called? How you would hope to print it? How many pages you would expect it to be? Give us an idea about the tone and feel. How are you producing the content? Is the team producing it or are you asking for contributions? Is it open-submission, or are you inviting specific contributors? Please also include a rough budget - Yuck ’n Yum are offering £500 seed money towards the project.
- A one page CV for each of your team. Yuck ’n Yum are putting our name to this so we need to be satisfied your team can deliver. What previous experience have you had, what transferable skills have you developed?
- Up to 6 images giving examples of previous work.
- Links to online material including blogs and video links.
Love from the Yuck 'n Yum team
