This zine project has the theme of seasons. There will be four sections, one for each season, that will be paired with a corresponding element as follows:

  • Spring - Earth

  • Summer - Fire

  • Fall - Air

  • Winter - Water

The current plan is to have each section have 5 artists and 2 writers. Each section will feature art and stories that depict characters from the corresponding nation in that season.


Q: How many artists/writers will be accepted?
A: Currently, 20 artists and 8 writers. There will be invited creators, so this number may change depending on the number of apps.

Q: How many pages will this zine have?
A: The current estimate is 60-80 pages, this may change depending on the number of applicants.

Q: What is the rating?
A: All art and fics should be appropriate for a PG13-teen+ audience.

Q: Will you be accepting people under the age of 18?
A: Yes.

Q: Is shipping/pairing allowed in the zine?
A: This zine will be general, so no romantic ships will be included.

Q: Are AU’s Allowed?
A: No, this project will focus on the canon verse, but you’re welcome to base your piece off of time periods that may not have been featured in the show. (ex. young versions of the Gaang)

Q: Is this zine lgbtq+ friendly?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I apply for multiple roles?
A: Yes, but you may not be accepted for all the roles you apply for.

Q: Can I collaborate with other contributors?
A: Yes, collaborations should be communicated so that we can make sure they are paired in the final product.

Q: Is traditional art allowed?
A: Yes, as long as you are able to provide a high quality digital image of your work.

Q: Can I use pre-existing work?
A: No.

Q: Will I receive a copy of the zine?
A: If profits allow, all contributors will receive a copy of each book. If they do not, contributors will receive a free PDF and the option to buy the books and merch at cost.
