The Zine

WerkHaus Zine is a new collective space to document and re-imagine our urban lives and spaces. 

Call for submissions

This is WorkHorse’s first call out for submissions for Issue #1 of WerkHaus Zine.

We welcome submissions from photographers and artists who use photography in their work. We invite a collaboration across disciplines and take an expanded view of photography. We want to create a space which represents a range of views and ways of looking, bringing together artists and photographers from different backgrounds, styles and genres. We are looking for thoughtful work with good ethics.

We’d love to see your work, whether you are an experienced artist, just starting out or don’t even call yourself a photographer. 

The Theme

The ArtificialThe first theme for WerkHaus Zine is “The Artificial”. Our vision is that you represent your thoughts through images and we create a zine that looks at our theme from all different angles.

We ask you to document the meaning that this topic has to you personally, or to relate it to broader thinking about our lives and cities. We are open to your ideas and creative expressions.

How to submit

Submissions are either a single image or a series (max. 6 images). We are also accepting accompanying text, although this is not a requirement. You can submit a 50 word overview or a short essay/writing of up to 500 words. It can be theoretical, creative or personal, but must relate to the theme of the issue.

Please send images in a low-res format initially and we will contact you if you are selected to provide hi-res versions. Please aim to keep image sizes under 1MB.

Submissions Open: 1st July 2020
