At Print on Paper & People of Print, we love Zines! We’re looking for creative ways for you to show off your work via the format of a printed Zine.

The focus is not solely on the quality of the content of your portfolio, but also the impact it has on the reader through storytelling and overall aesthetic.

Please follow these guidelines carefully, as we will not accept entries in any other format. In particular, please don’t forget to download our InDesign templates or Illustrator template to help you get started.

Judging criteria

We’ll be picking the winners based on a combination of the design idea, execution, practicality and thoughtfulness.

Rules

Intellectual property rights for each submission will remain with the entrant. However, by entering the competition, entrants grant Print on Paper and its partners the right to publish, promote or otherwise display their designs without having to seek prior approval. This will involve taking photographs or scans of entries for digital publication.

Entries must not violate the intellectual property or design rights of any third party. Any entry found to have done so will be disqualified.

The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

We will base decisions on one entry per person. Bulk entries will be disqualified.

Winners will be contacted via email and announced on on printonpaper.com & peopleofprint.com during the first week of December 2017. Please ensure your email address is correct upon entry and any correspondence hasn’t gone to your spam folder.

Cash prizes will be posted by cheque via registered post to the winners, based on the names and addresses supplied on entry forms. It is therefore essential that entry forms contain correct information. No alternative prizes will be offered.
