Open Submissions Policy

Submissions FAQ:
Our general rule is this: If we like the story… We will publish it – providing that the material is your own original content and does not infringe on any copyright. It wouldn’t be a proper zombie story without gore – so by all means include it; but please consider our younger audiences when it comes to the use of gratuitous language and violence (i.e don’t overdo it).

 

For Writers:

A zombie theme, plot point, or basis would be ideal so that there is a congruent theme throughout the series. Additionally, an Irish element such as the location of your story would help although it isnt a requirement for publication. But a good story is paramount, no matter the content!

 

  • We accept comicbook style submissions, from 1 page stories to approximately 8 page stories, and 1 to 4 pages for prose and illustrated prose.
  • Please send a small a paragraph synopsis along with full script.
  • If your story is too long for submission under these guidelines, please contact us here to discuss telling the story through multiple issues.

 

For Artists:

If you are submitting artwork for consideration, please include any links to online portfolios/blogs or alternatively you can email us directly here.

 

  • A template is provided for artwork in a zipped PSD (Photoshop) format which adheres to the strict specifications for print. It can be downloaded here.
  • If you are a cover artist please contact us with portfolio work and we can discuss what would be applicable for each individual issue.
  •  If you are an artist without a story, or a writer without an artist, we will happily find a match for your technique/style, just contact us for more details.

 

Please note:

 

All submissions will be reviewed by Uproar Comics Ltd employees, and may be subject to revisions if requested by Uproar Comics. All submissions are on a credit basis only. If your submission is chosen for publication, the creator(s) will have full ownership and rights to all aspects of story and artwork where applicable. We want to help build and promote an industry of comics in Ireland and further afield through the publication of open submissions to help promote the industry and the individuals who contribute.
