We would like to say a BIG thank you to all who attended our Summer 2012 edition launch party at the Old Hairdresser’s in Glasgow last night. It was a fun night with swell entertainment from Neighbourhood Gout, Conquering Animal Sound and Good Press (thanks guys for playing some ace tunes for us). Also thanks to new interns Becca Clark and Morgan Cahn for popping down from Dundee and lending the YNY team a hand. You can see some pics of the night on our facebook page facebook.com/YucknYum2008. The online version will be going online soon and you will be able to pick up a copy from our stockists in a couple of weeks. In the meantime you could head down to Good Press in Glasgow or print off a copy on your home computer.

Yuck ‘n Yum will be hosting our mobile Karaoke Unit at the Meadow Mill Wasps studio’s reopening this weekend. We will be there all weekend with LIVE Karaoke 5 til 9 on Saturday the 26th of May.
Read on for the official invite from Wasps Studios.
Open Studios Sat and Sun, 12-5pm
Many artists will be opening their studio doors to the public between 12-5pm on both days. For details of artists based at Meadow Mill, please click here. There will also be a number of invited guests taking part including Yuck n’ Yum, Generator Projects, a collective of 3rd year students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and photographer Ross Fraser McLean.
Artists Ask Exhibition, Sat 12-9pm Sun 12-5pm
This is the perfect opportunity to showcase our new gallery and project space. For the launch event, studio artists have borrowed works and artefacts from guest artists, writers and performers. Artists’ studio practices can often be solitary. However, outside of the studios, the artists are a part of many different kinds of artistic communities and wider networks.
Artists Ask creates a platform to reinvigorate and reinforce the relationships that Meadow Mill artists have with the wider world.
You may recall at the beginning of the year we announced that Val Norris and Michael Lacey were the two artists selected for our guest zine project. Well over the last few months Val and Michael have been busy beavering away and the time is almost upon us to unleash their endeavours into the world. Before we do we thought we would whet your appetite with some tasty pages courtesy of Michael Lacey.
OOH YUM! Michael’s zine entitled ‘Innards’ will be launching soon in Glasgow. We’ll keep you updated through the usual channels.
Yes, it’s that time again! Time to dig out your video camera, borrow a friend’s, or use your iPhone… well what else do you do with it? Make phone calls?
You’ve got a karaoke video to make, pal!
Instead of holding a boring AGM, Yuck ‘n Yum decided to heck with professionalism and held an AGK instead! The first two Annual General Karaokes have been leading up to this! It’s simple: a karaoke night where all the karaoke videos are made by you!
Some of you will want to make a beautiful video and perform with it yourself – others might have hi-concept ideas, direct the video and choreograph a team of performers around it. Some will be shy and just want to make a video that is so tremendous it will have the audience fighting over the right to sing it. This years event will be held in Chambers East on Saturday 29th of September but we need your video by Aug 31st.
Featuring: Cos Ahmet, Kris Harzinski, Levi Bunyan, Ale Siniestro, Lotte Fisher, Ben Robinson, Luke Cloran, Ger O'Brien, Gabriele Jogelaite, Eva Angermann, Alec Finlay, Susanne Lund Pangrazio, Emer Tumilty, Lucas Battich, Ross Hamilton Frew, and Lydia Brownlee.
We are always looking for submissions for future issues of Yuck 'n Yum. We invite anyone to submit work for consideration to email@example.com
Yuck ‘n Yum is a not-for-profit group and the zine is free, so work is accepted on a voluntary (i.e. unpaid) basis. By sending us your work, you consent to our publication of it in print and online. Free paper editions are available at our launches, and are sent out to several galleries and distributors (see our list of distributors, below). PDF versions are always available online for you to print out yourself.
Yuck ‘n Yum is distributed as a physical on-paper zine, but is also made available in an online edition. You can submit a single piece that will be included in both editions, or you could take advantage of the internet medium to produce alternative work for online publication. Our print edition is entirely black and white, so you could, for example, provide an alternative colour version for the online edition. Alternatively, you could send us totally different media: an audio project, a short video or animation for example. It’s totally up to you.
Format guidelines: The printed image will be black and white, and quite high contrast - bear this in mind. Each page in the zine is A5. Images should be 300dpi resolution. We prefer to receive images as jpegs (if a photograph) or pngs (if a line drawing). If you send us something low-res and we want to include it, we will probably get in touch to ask you for a high-res version before the zine goes to print. Written articles should be saved in a format compatible with Microsoft Word. If you are interested in submitting a sound piece or video work for the online version we would prefer audio work in mp3 or ogg format, and video work as a Quicktime mp4/mov file or ogg.
The deadline for our Autumn issue is the 23rd of August 2013.
Enter your email address and sign up to receive news about our upcoming events and callouts for submissions.
