The anthology

For each AltCom since 2010, we’ve made a festival anthology with comics by artists from different countries, making their own interpretations of the theme of that year.

AltCom 2016: WORK anthology – call for submissions!

Edit 2016-03-31: We got the fundeing for the book through Kickstarter! So we know now that it is happening!

Time to announce the festival anthology of 2016:

We don’t have all the funding secured yet, but there’s a Kickstarter, so let’s assume that everything will be fine and open this call for submissions anyway!

The theme for this year is WORK, and we would like you to give us your stories interpreting that theme.

WHAT we want:
Pages: 1-5, black/white
Language: English
Format: 140x182mm (a little bit smaller than A5) +5mm bleed on all sides
Files: High-resolution .TIFF, preferably
If you are unsure what we mean by “high-resolution”, please ask. Not sure what we mean by “bleed”? Read this! Lots of artists don’t know, and it’s better to ask than to send us files that we can’t use.

Introduction to the theme.

WHEN we want it:
Deadline: May 15

Send submissions to: submissions [at] altcomfestival [dot] se

Please feel free to invite more comics artists to the Facebook event.

WHO we are:
The AltCom 2016 anthology will be edited by the Hybrid of CBK & Tusen Serier.

As usual, no one gets paid for participating. But on the other hand, no one pays for it either since we’ll be giving the book away for free during and after the festival!

And yes, we do accept comics that have already been published elsewhere, as long as we like them and they fit into the theme.
