Call for Submissions: Festivals Zine

Applications are now open for Coin-Operated Press’s Festivals Zine!

We were so gutted to learn that the Edinburgh Festivals were cancelled this year – and so many other wonderful festivals throughout the world – due to Covid-19! This is a massive blow to the art community, so we wanted to celebrate our love for festivals, music, and the performing arts by spreading the festival love with this zine!

Send us your show posters! Tell us all about the shows you were looking forward to! Regale us with stories about past events you have visited! Share with us your cancelled show! Let us know if there are any virtual festival events that you are a part of that we can broadcast in this zine! Write tips and tricks for festival-goers for the future!

We are looking for: articles, illustrations, short stories, photography, poetry, artwork of any medium, adverts, posters, flyers, short essays, recipes, comic-strips, reviews, collage, and anything else you can put your imagination to.

Please only submit work that will fit on 1-2 A4 pages. If you have work that is longer/larger than this, please send us an inquiry email, as we would like to be open to including longer formats.

Be sure to send us the following details along with your submission please:

*The name/credit you would like printed in the zine.
*Your pronouns.
*The city and/or country that you live in.
*Any contact details that you would like printed in the zine.
*A short one-sentence bio.
*A profile photo or image for your bio.
*Title of your work.
*A short description of your work and how it fits with the theme.

If you wish to remain anonymous, that is absolutely fine – just be sure to let us know when you submit your piece.

The deadline is midnight BST on Tuesday 15th August 2020.

Please send submissions to
