there were an astounding 215 votes for the next altered bits zine themes and the top four are the winners.
the next altered bits zine will have four themes:
cabinet of curiosities (if you know me, you know this thrills me beyond belief!)
tattered and torn (this one actually surprised me)
an artful retelling of history (this was my choice, so of course i’m quite excited — love the merging of art and history!)
handmade & altered books and pages (you know i love this too!!)
i was a little sad that assemblage and dolls/doll parts didn’t win but then i realized that i could still do assemblage for any of the non-book themes, and of course include dolls or doll parts if i so desire… which i probably do!)
submissions are now open! deadlines for submissions is october 31, 2011 (that’s halloween so you may not want to wait until the last minute). limit three submissions per person, with one main shot and up to two detail photographs of each piece. you can read all of the submission guidelines on the altered bits website on the zine page. please read the submission guidelines VERY carefully as it is a huge amount of work to follow up with people if they’ve sent improper files or missing information (and i may not have the time to get back to you, thus you may not have the opportunity to be included, sorry). i am very open to helping if you have any questions prior to submitting so always feel free to email me if desired.
