Dear Yuck 'n Yummers,
We are delighted to announce that the winners of Zine Idol are The Collage Collective (CC)!
The Aberdeen based collective received £500 seed money plus all of our support and guidance to fund their zine production.
On Saturday 8th February Zine Idol took place at the Hannah Maclure
Centre's Micro Cinema in Dundee. Zinesters from across Scotland made
their pitch to our select panel, who had the tough decision to pick a
winner out of all the worthy presentations.
In attendance were CC, Barnum's Baby, Plastik Zine, ST-ART Magazine and
Anti-Zine. All participants were able to make new connections, dialogues
and friendships through the event. CC is made up of artists, writers,
musicians and designers and have already been beavering away to bring
you their first call out - see below
// CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS // DEADLINE 21st March
THE CC PRESENTS: KEN / DA KEN
The Uncanny was term appointed by Freud to denote the schism and
dichotomous relationship between things which seem familiar yet
simultaneously foreign. The concept alludes not just to an object,
person or place(s) apparent meaning and reason but also its implicit
“KEN” derived from the Old English “ken” (knowing or to know) holds an
independent resonance within Scotland, still used frequently
linguistically e.g. “Y’ken” - “Aye I ken”.
WHAT WE WANT:

mentioned theme. We are looking for submissions from;
artists, designers, writers and performers.
