Content Restrictions:
Rated PG-13. This means no obsessive gore, nudity, excessive swearing or mention of drugs.Kenma Zine is a general zine. No Shipping.
Contributor Requirements and Restrictions:

  • All contributors are expected to have and use Discord, as it will be our main mode of communication.

  • Contributors retain their right to share their work and can redistribute AFTER zine sales close. They are not allowed to share WIPs or final work during the process or preorders, sans contributor previews - more information about that to come.

  • Contributors may apply for more than one role but will only be chosen for one.

  • All contributors are expected to have played video games before.

  • All contributors must submit a portfolio with their application; a personal website, google drive folder, or something of that nature that is NOT cluttered with other content. Applications do not require Haikyuu/Kenma art, but would be appreciated.

  • No previous zine experience required. Contributors will be picked by skill and their compatibility with the theme of the zine. So show us pieces that best showcase your skills.

  • Traditional art is accepted as long as the contributor can provide a high quality scan of at least 300DPI that has been color corrected.

Illustrator Application Requirements:
We’re looking for an understanding of anatomy and design principles. Things like composition, color, perspective, hierarchy, rhythm. The application itself will ask for a medium portfolio 7-15 pieces. This can be a google drive folder, or a personal website etc. (just not a cluttered social media). Literal backgrounds are not required; however, we are still looking at your backgrounds and compositions. We’re looking for how a piece works altogether. That being said, pieces with backgrounds have higher potential as it allows detail, setting, and perspective. Please note, we love a contributor who can follow directions on 7-15 pieces.

Merch Application Requirements:
We’re looking for similar things to the illustrators, but obviously designed for merch. If you want to make charms show us what you can do as a charm. If you want to make buttons, show us your button designs. Ideally 10+ designs, but more is welcome in your portfolio.

Writer Application Requirements:
Standard requirements: proper characterization, grammar/syntax, pacing, etc. No more than 3000 words per sample. Excerpts are allowed but you must include at least one completed piece (full story) within the word limit. Haikyuu fics are preferred but not required.
