Good Morning Furians!
We are now accepting
There are around 9 spots open, and it is FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE.
But, you MUST read the submission requirements very carefully! The committee (sounds ominous) reserves the right to reject any submissions that DO NOT FOLLOW the guidelines. Once accepted, we will also be working with you on edits and anything like that to make sure we all put our best foot forward. This is a promotional zine meant to entice new readers! So let's make it a good one :D
*2-4 pages: self contained sample of your comic.
Definition of Self-Contained for our requirements:
A oneshot could be or have:
-- a complete idea.
-- a beginning, middle, and end
-- a well-told gag or joke
-- a complete action sequence
-- a complete romantic sequence
*To submit, we require a rough draft of your idea: this can be a script, thumb nails, or sketches. Once accepted and a second draft is submitted, we will be editing to make sure there are errors (spelling/grammar/continuity/missing patterns/etc.)
-----If you do not want to send a sample of your comic (that is, a sample following the self
contained scene requirement,) you may also submit a "Summer" themed 2-4 draft/script/etc.
*Once approved/accepted, the final draft must be:
-----300 dpi, in .png format, fitting the template we provide (5.5 in. x 7.75 in./1650 x 2323 pixels with .25 of that being bleeds around the edges--text must be within the safety.
.png resizing: https://tinypng.com/
*SFW content only for this first Zine (there may be a NSFW one in the future, but we want to get this up and running first.)
*Please submit your very best quality work: remember, this is to promote and entice new readers. We all will continue to improve, but please make the finished product as polished as possible.
*First come, first serve. We can accept around 9 submissions (if all submissions are 4 pages in length. If there are some shorter ones, we *may* have some wiggle room.)
DEADLINE: First Draft April 22, 2020
You must submit to the following e-mail (do not post it here, please!): firstname.lastname@example.org
*Editors maintain the right to reject submission if it does not follow the requirements listed. Provided there is still space, you may resubmit a revised draft that does fit the requirements.
***People may print and distribute the zine, they CANNOT claim the work as their own, nor can they charge us for printing or re-distribution. We are not intending to sell this first zine, although in the future we may do a charity thing, or something of that nature, if the zine becomes successful.

Edit: I'm adding the example I posted below, in a better place:
Here's some crappy samples of a complete scene:
*Foul language in my example below. I am NOT submitting for the zine, just giving an example.)
In Four pages (this is, again, a very bad example XD)
1 (has two people's names)
2 (the other character's name)
Or, to steal from the amazing The Cartoonist at Large (this is just from a Christmas Crossover, but he's great with short comics that are self-contained):
