ZINE AWARDS

About BP Zine Awards

Founded in 2017, Broken Pencil Zine Awards celebrates excellence in independent, underground zine making and micro-printing!

The goal of the Zine Awards has been to honour outstanding work coming out of the ever-expanding zine universe, and to acknowledge the talent and hard work of emerging, established and experimental self-publishers for their contributions to zine culture.
