The Kutztown University Zine Library will be hosting a zine sweepstakes for all KU students. First place winner will receive a $500 cash prize.
Zines are independently published mini-magazines, often about a single topic. Typically zines convey their creators’ passions and expertise using text and/or graphics, original and/or appropriated content, clean simple layouts and/or elaborate jumbled collage.
Students are required to work in teams with at least one other current KU student. However, teams must include at least two students in different majors. Teams can exceed two persons and may include Alumni.
Zines will be judged by a panel that includes one representative of each of KU’s four Colleges, one Rohrbach librarian, and two at-large panelists, unaffiliated with KU, who have experience working on zines.
On Sunday February 12, a meeting will be held in the STEAMworks room (RL 18) in the Rohrbach Library to discuss the upcoming sweepstakes and workshop zines. The meeting is set to take place at 7:30 p.m. After February 12, meetings will be held every other Sunday until the submission deadline on April 16.
After the sweepstakes all submissions will be on display at the Kutztown University Zine Library across from the Book & Brew cafe in Rohrbach Library.
