Best Fanzine Slowcomics AWARD
AUTODROMO NAZIONALE di MONZA, September 18-19, 2010
Creativity has always been driven artists, graphic designers, art lovers or simple self-taught artists, full of desire to express themselves, to self print their fanatic magazines. Self-produced publications those, in some particular historical moments, have also shown alternative forms of free expression. Proud of "limited edition" publications made in Italy, we open with a strong sense of international to authors from around the world and within Sloworld 2010 , section Slowcomics, and we hold our first competition for fanzines from around the world.
Are you a talented designer with a great desire to express yourself? You have published photocopying, screen-printing and pasting your comics magazine, or a small anthology with your original drawns? Have you involved your friends or colleagues of art school? Then enter our prize Slowcomics Best Fanzine, sending three copies of your zine and information (as specified by the regulation on the site here previously resumed). Participation is free. The jury will be composed of communications professionals who are still amazed by the creativity, however expressed, when it represents something new and exciting!
Waiting for your publications!

Today I got a sweet package from Swedish Joakim Ojanen. The package was two of his latest zines: LIMO ZINE and PLUS ONE.
The first thing I noticed was the lovely silk screened covers. LIMO ZINE is a lovely concertina type of book folded up into different spreads but makes one huge continuos drawing. Like a huge psychedelic dream. Nice.
Anyway, if you want to get a copy head over HERE
