Exhibitor applications for this year’s Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival are now available; although the show is curated, all submissions will be reviewed, according to a letter from co-director Gabe Fowler. This year’s show will be held December 3rd at the Mt. Carmel Church in Williamsburg.
It’s a small venue for a show that is growing rapidly in importance — so if you are a returning exhibitor, get that application in!
The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival is pleased to offer this online form as a way for prospective exhibitors to express their interest in exhibiting in 2011. The BCGF remains a small curated show with limited exhibition space. We will therefore review all of the submitted forms and send out invitations to exhibit. Our only goal is to create the strongest overall show.
The 2011 Festival will occur on Saturday, December 3rd at Mt. Carmel church in Brooklyn (the same venue as 2010) with some additional satellite locations.
-Full tables will be $200 for all exhibitors.
-Half-tables will be available to individual artists for $75. (If you are an individual artist, you will not be allowed to share your half table).
Here is how we will proceed:
1) All interested exhibitors must fill out this form by July 15th, 2011. Even if you’ve exhibited before, this will let us know that you’d like to come back. Please note: Only prospective exhibitors who submit this form will be considered.
2) At the end of July we will send out a first round of invitations to participate in the festival. If everyone says yes (and pays for their table) the show is full. Simultaneously we will also create a wait list in the event that exhibition spots open up.
3) First-round invitations expire on September 15th, 2011. Any tables available at this time will be offered to wait list exhibitors. Thank you for your attention to these pesky details. We’re looking forward to another great fest in 2011!
