Following our first contributor meeting we have decided on the theme, deadline for submissions, and tentative release date for the second issue of The Seneca Collective.
Given that the next issue will be released at the beginning of the new year we decided that the theme for the next issue of The Seneca Collective should be "NEW BEGINNINGS". You may interpret this theme in any way which you would like whether it involves the new year, a new rivalry, a new romance, a new semester at Seneca or even a new issue of the zine itself! Remember, the theme is only there to provide inspiration. Feel free to ignore the theme altogether. If you’d like to get an idea of the type of content that we publish in the zine then take a look at the first issue. Keep in mind that we’re open to and actively encouraging people to submit new types of content!
The deadline for submissions is DECEMBER 23RD, since we don’t want anyone to be working on stuff over Christmas if you celebrate that. This still gives you a week after winter holidays start at Seneca to work on your submissions. The tentative release date for the second issue is January 6th 2014, although this is subject to change.
Here’s what you need to know to submit:
Submissions are only open to those who are currently attending or have previously attended Seneca college!
Submissions will be printed as BLACK/WHITE/GRAYSCALE because colour printing is insanely expensive! Please keep this in mind for your submissions! In some instances we may accept submissions with VERY LIMITED colour. Please consult us about this.
Submissions must fit within a 5.5” by 8.5” page (double paged spreads are allowed, just make it 8.5” by 11”).
Submissions must be submitted as high res JPEGs or TIFFs and be AT LEAST 300 DPI; 600 DPI is preferred.
When you submit any sort of submission, we’d love it if you include a little doodled self-portrait for the contributors page. Grayscale photos are also acceptable for the contributors page.
NO EXPLICIT PORNOGRAPHY (some nudity is fine), EXTREME GORE, EXCESSIVE SWEARING (just bleep it out!) OR HATESPEECH IS TOLERATED.
Please try and avoid all copyrighted media! We’d really like to not get sued! Any copyrighted media included in submissions will be denied. This does NOT include fanart. You can submit that. Just don’t submit other people’s work.
E-mail all submissions to SenecaCollectiveZine(at)gmail(dot)com, or use the submission form.
Each contributor will receive some copies of the zine to distribute however they’d like! We’ll have to be able to give it to you at the school, however; we will not be sending out copies in the mail, as that’s rather expensive. If you cannot receive your copy for whatever reason, we’re also putting together PDF versions of the zine, so we can e-mail you one!
We want to get as many submissions for this issue as possible so please help us get the word out by reblogging this on Tumblr, retweeting our posts on Twitter and telling everyone you know in Seneca’s visual arts programs about us.
