Yuck 'n Yum - Introducing The Collage Collective‏

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



 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 meaning.

“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”.


— Works in any media that responds to the afore-
mentioned theme. We are looking for submissions from;

artists, designers, writers and performers.

We ask that works are sent digitally as jpegs or rtf/word

docs for text formats. Files should be a max of 2mb.

Please consider when submitting images the final zine will be produced in B&W and in A5 format. If your work requires two pages please state this when submitting and we will take it into consideration.

 Email submissions to thecollagecollective @ gmail.com

Include the following: //NAME: | COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: | TITLE OF WORK: | MEDIA: | DIMENSIONS: //

Even if your submission is unsuitable for this issue of “THE CC PRESENTS:” we shall keep details of both you and your works in a form of archive in case your works seems more suited to a future issue.

Yuck 'n Yum is massively thankful to all who took part and all can count on Yuck 'n Yum's full support in their future endeavours. We'd also like to say a special thanks to Clare Brennan and her team at The Hannah Maclure Centre, Abertay University, Dundee for supporting the project.

We’ll be keeping our readership fully updated with CC's progress, and we look forward to seeing what they’ll make of this opportunity.

Love from the Yuck 'n Yum team.
