Heya, long time no see. We've decided to start up another zine this year! Here's the info. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

The time has finally come! I have time to run the NaruSaku Zine 2019 again this year!

Last year, we released NaruSaku Zine 2018 on NaruSaku Day, April 3rd. Of course, we didn’t make it to the exact date but it was pretty close! It was very hard, but I’m glad people enjoyed their books. I have learned a lot about managing and finances as well.

NaruSaku Zine 2019 is set to release October 10, 2019, Naruto’s birthday! The Theme

The theme this year is Alternate Universes! What better way to enjoy fandom works than AU upon AU? That’s right, there is no better way!

We have seen various AUs and slight iterations of Naruto over the years through chapter covers drawn by Kishimoto. It’s time to continue the trend! You aren’t REQUIRED to follow the AU Theme and can create normal NaruSaku art. After all, normal NaruSaku art is simply a Shinobi AU

Need some ideas? Here are some!:

  • High School
  • College
  • Modern
  • Royal
  • Cowboy
  • Samurai
  • Desert
  • Fairy tale
  • Road Trip
  • Musical
  • Carnival
  • High Fantasy
  • Crime/Gang
  • Alien
  • Supernatural/Vampire/Werewolf
  • Reincarnation
  • Wizard
  • Medieval
The Guidelines

The rules have not changed much from last year, but it never hurts to have a few guidelines

Art

  • Art pieces must be 6 x 9 and at least 300 dpi for printing. If you do not meet these requirements, your image may end up stretched, pixelated, or cropped which does not look nice.
  • Artist disclaimers and signatures are fine, but try not to be too distracting since this is a printed book and not digital.

Writing

  • Pages will be 6 x 9 inches and 0.79 “margins.
  • Font will be Garamond 12px 1.15 line spacing. This is subject to change.
  • Each page can contain 325 words, that’s a hard limit of 1300. This equals 4 pages, aka 2 pages front and back. If art pieces are accompanying your story, please make room for them.

General

  • The art and writing must be PG-13. This is so the NaruSaku Zine can be shipped and sold to all countries and avoid any legal trouble along the way.
  • All art and writing must be created newly for the Zine and not previously posted online.
  • No edits or traces of the official manga. Everything must be original and created by us.
  • Not a hard rule, but we strongly suggest NOT posting your work online until the Zine has already been released.
  • All NaruSaku Zine participants will get 1 free proof copy of the zine
  • Deadline for entries is September 1st, 2019. This is to make sure there is enough time to print proofs and get copies sent out to all participants before printing the final books.
How to Participate

Thank you!

Art

  • Art pieces must be 6 x 9 and at least 300 dpi for printing. If you do not meet these requirements, your image may end up stretched, pixelated, or cropped which does not look nice.

^You mean like 6 inch x 9 inch? That would make it 432 x 648 Pixels. 

 

But 300 DPI = 300 Dots per Inch..?

"Since the resolution is 300 dpi, it means that each inch is 300 pixels across. As the image is 8 inches wide that means there are 2,400 pixels in width (8 x 300). Likewise, as the image is 12 inches long, the image is 3,600 pixels in length (12 x 300)."

 

Confusing

  • Artist disclaimers and signatures are fine, but try not to be too distracting since this is a printed book and not digital.
  •  

Writing

  • Pages will be 6 x 9 inches and 0.79 “margins.
  • Font will be Garamond 12px 1.15 line spacing. This is subject to change.
  • Each page can contain 325 words, that’s a hard limit of 1300. This equals 4 pages, aka 2 pages front and back. If art pieces are accompanying your story, please make room for them.

So each page is between 325-1300 words? Or the total of 4 pages must be under 1300 words?

Where can I find previous examples of all these? 

thanks and good luck everyone

Yay yay yay! So excited! The last one was soooo beautiful! And we can submit a fic and a separate piece of art (not relate to the story)? Just making sure. I want to do some art for this one too. The theme is awesome!

6 x 9 inches in pixels is 1800 x 2700 px and 300dpi. I'm not sure how you arrived at your measurements.... You can test this yourself in photoshop. 

 

> Confusing

 

I'm assuming you mean you are confused about artist disclaimers and signatures? We don't want the art to be marred by the usual big artist signature used to keep people from stealing art online. These are printed pieces, so there's no need to paste a huge signature on top. I mean sure, an idiot could scan it into a computer and post it, but I doubt anyone would go through the effort. Somewhere around the art is totes ok though no issues with signatures in general

 

> So each page is between 325-1300 words? Or the total of 4 pages must be under 1300 words? 

 

Each page can only contain 325 words. You have 4 pages for writing, making that a total of 1300 words or less. 1300 words on a single 6 x 9 page would be really tiny. Oof

 

Where can I find previous examples of all these? 

 

Many people last year eventually posted their work after the zine released and most people got their copies. You can find them on this blog: https://narusakuzine...blr.com/archive

 

> And we can submit a fic and a separate piece of art (not relate to the story)? 

 

Of course of course ^_^

The content for the NaruSaku zine has to be new and not posted prior to the book. We do this so that people who buy it will have fresh new stuff to look at. You can write a new poem to submit though!
