NCWCCC Important (Anthology 3 - Final Deadline Extension)

Hi all,

I'm extending the NCWCCC deadline one final time. The new deadline is December 13th.

Below are all the specs for the NCWCCC Anthology 3 Book. I have offered two versions. The short version goes over stuff you NEED TO KNOW. The long version includes greater detail.

Short Version (Stuff you NEED to know)

1. The theme is Religion.

2. The anthology will be juried. Submitting work will not guarantee a spot in the book. (may need to rethink this due to deadline extensions)

3. There is no strict deadline for participation this year. Just get it to me before the deadline.

4. Deadline for all work, covers and biographies is Sunday, December 13th. Biographies cannot exceed 100 words and must begin w/ your name or handle of choice. Please include your URL in your bio.

5. Work must not exceed 8” x 8” in dimension. All art must be B & W or grayscale, at least 300 dpi and in TIF format. You may submit work in PDF format, but please export to high quality print settings, or use equivalent dpi (300). note - You may send in larger sizes, but they must be reducible to 8” x 8” with the fonts still being legible.

6. FTP information will be provided via email.

7. I encourage you to read the long version.

Long Version

Okay, if you really want to know what’s going on, read below.

THEME: Religion. You may be as broad as you wish w/ this subject.

PARTICIPATION: Anyone associated w/ the NCWCCC may submit work for the Anthology. Unlike previous years, there is no separate deadline for participation. This means that if you would like to submit something, just get it to me before the deadline Nov 29th

MEDIUM: Like Anthology 1 and 2, we will accept comics, art, photography, short stories, essays, poetry or a mix of all of the above. While we prefer new art, you may submit something you have already done, but it cannot be from any previous NCWCCC anthology. It won’t fit the theme. ;)

TECHNICAL SPECS: Comics/art/photography – Please send black & white or grayscale art. (If you send color pics they will be turned to grayscale.) All art must be at least 300 dpi and in TIF format. JPGs will be accepted, but please note that quality may suffer as a result. You may submit work in PDF format, but please export to the high quality print settings, or use equivalent dpi (300). Stories/essays/poetry – If at all possible please send any written work in a WORD doc, but that is not mandatory. If you desire a specific font please send a True Type font w/ your work. Mac fonts cannot be accepted at this time. Book will be 8 ½ x 8 ½, same as the last one.

YOUR WORK MUST BE 8” X 8” OR REDUCIBLE TO THAT SIZE. If you do send in a larger size, please ensure your fonts are legible at 8” X 8”.

FTP information will be provided via email.

PAGE COUNT: You may submit two to six pages which may be a continuous story or a series of illustrations, or whatever. The six page limit is only a suggestion. If you can produce 16 pages by the deadline date, go for it. Please try to keep your page count to an even number. (We need to know your page count by July )

BIOGRAPHIES AND URLs: Please submit a small biography about you, your comic or both. Biographies cannot exceed 100 words and must begin w/ your name or handle of choice. Ten words more or less will make no difference. Also include no more than TWO URLs to be listed along w/ your biography. (Deadline for Biographies is same as other work, Sunday, December 13th).

EDITING: Once again, our book will be edited by Zack Smith. He will be editing comics, stories, introduction, blurbs, copyright page, etc. I plan to submit each work to Zack as it comes in. If any corrections are needed we will contact you with Zack’s notes. Once the work is corrected, please upload the work to the FTP again AND LET ME KNOW!! If your work does not require any corrections we will send you an email stating so. (Corrections should be made and uploaded or sent in by)

JURRIED SELECETION: Currently we are planning to have the third anthology juried which means someone outside the NCWCCC will decide which stories, art, etc will make it into the book. Definitely on board for this duty is Wednesday White of Websnark. Others will follow. This means that by submitting work does NOT guarantee you a spot in the book. Please, think about this very carefully before submitting anything. (may need to rethink this due to deadline extensions)

DEADLINE: Sunday, December 13th – Hard deadline for all work and biographies to be submitted. This includes front and back covers. (This means that your finished work MUST be uploaded to the FTP site before Saturday, October 31st. Bios should be emailed separately and include your name and URLS.)

IN HAND DEADLINE: Like last year we would like to debut the book at What the Hell Con. WTHC is scheduled for February 5th – 7th, 2010.
