  • The winners of Zine Idol are CC


    We are delighted to announce that the winners of Zine Idol are The Collage Collective!

    The Aberdeen based collective received £500 seed money plus all of our support and guidance to fund their zine production.

    On Saturday 8th February Zine Idol took place at the Hannah Maclure Centre’s  Micro Cinema in Dundee. Zinesters from across Scotland made their pitch to our select panel, who somehow had to decide on a winner out of all the worthy presentations.

    In attendance were CC, Barnum’s Baby, Plastik Zine, ST-ART Magazine and Anti-Zine. All participants were able to make new connections, dialogues and friendships through the event.  CC is made up of artists, writers, musicians and designers and have already been beavering away to bring you their first call out



    The Uncanny was term appointed by Freud to denote the schism and dichotomous relationship between things which seem familiar yet simultaneously foreign. The concept alludes not just to an object, person or place(s) apparent meaning and reason but also its implicit meaning.

    “KEN” derived from the Old English “ken” (knowing or to know) holds an independent resonance within Scotland, still used frequently linguistically e.g. “Y’ken” – “Aye I ken”.
