Coin-Operated Press invites you to submit to our zine all about upcycling. To upcycle means to recycle or reuse items that would otherwise go to waste in a way that increases the original object’s value. In other words, upcycling is taking something old and creating something new – and we want you to share all your upcycling tips and tricks with us!

We welcome you to share with us photos of your upcycled projects, recycling how-tos, art you’ve made from rubbish, instructional guides on how to upcycle household waste, a photo-essay of upcycling initiatives in your local area, a collage made from trash, an essay on the importance of upcycling to the climate crisis, and anything else you think will fit into this lil eco-friendly zine!

We are looking for: articles, illustrations, short stories, zine excerpts, photography, poetry, artwork of any medium, educational guides, posters, flyers, short essays, recipes, comic-strips, reviews, informationals, collages, and anything else you can put your imagination to. Ideally, your work will fit on no more than two pages.

The finished zine will be A5 in size and printed in full colour.

Send us your submissions by filling in this Google form.

Emailed submissions will not be accepted.

The deadline is midnight BST on Friday 28th April 2023.
