Lochgelly – Loch of Shining Waters will be releasing a free 12 page gloss magazine for the local community after receiving funding money from Scotland Unltd and Nominet Trust. The magazine will be published in July and only 1000 copies will be made available. We will be distributing the magazine via local community spaces and some participating shops. We are hoping this will be the first of many issues to be published.
To launch the magazine we are looking for contributions from the local community and will be holding a photographic & art competition.
Are you a keen photographer or artist, professional or amateur? Would you like your work to be published on the front cover of the Lochgelly magazine?
We are seeking individuals from the local community to submit photographs or artwork of the local area to be featured on the front cover. We will also be publishing a page of submitted images within the magazine. All submissions will be featured online, in an article as well.
The images submitted need to be of high quality, if it is to be used for a front cover, other than that, this competition is open to everyone, of all ages, from the local community.
The prize is that you will be featured on the front cover and within the magazine, all submissions will be credited, and the magazine will be a good keepsake or portfolio piece to showcase some of your work.
If you are interested in submitting any art or photographs, send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org, include competition in the subject header field, and be sure to include the location of the photograph. If you are successful, we will contact you by e-mail requesting your address to send you the final copy of the magazine featuring your work.
Advertising & Sponsorship
This may be our only issue to be published, however, we are hoping to make the magazine sustainable by providing 2 pages for advertisers and sponsors. If we can raise funds we would like to publish a magazine every quarter, or at least twice a year. We are hoping local businesses will help support this magazine by advertising within the magazine. All adverts are designed for free for any interested business and organisation.
