Zine competition runners up

Misspent Summers zines

Our recent zine design competition had a lot of amazing entries from all over the world.

From people who had never before tried designing a zine right through to pro-level, we received just about every type of entry imaginable. Some were slickly produced, some hilariously funny, others gave us a window into a local riding scene we’d have otherwise never known about. The diversity is what makes zines so great.

However, because we loved every single zine submitted, this made it mighty hard to choose three winners (these can be found in the Winners section of the Zine Library page). So we increased the winner count a bit, to six. And then to eight. We also decided that everyone should be a winner, so anyone not in the three main prize spots or the five runner-up positions will be receiving a free copy of our Tea & Biscuits zine, Served.

Thank you to everyone who entered. If we haven’t already, we will be in touch to get your addresses for the prizes and zines.

Anyway. Here are the five runners up. Each will receive a one-off piece of wall art illustrated especially for you by the one and only Jon Gregory, ex-Dirt Mag designer and the man behind Deathgrip Book‘s design.
