L.A. Zine Fest 2019 Tabling Application
The eighth annual L.A. Zine Fest will take place at the Helms Bakery in Culver City on Sunday, May 26, 2019. The venue has free wifi.

L.A. Zine Fest was founded to provide a place for zinesters and self-publishers to come together and share their creations with each other and the public. In an effort to continue providing a zine-centric experience for all, we ask that at least 80% of the items you sell at your table be zines or other DIY, independently produced publications.

This application is for a HALF TABLE (3 feet long with one chair). An EXTREMELY LIMITED number of full tables will be available, with preference given to distros and large groups. If you would like to be considered for a full table, there is a space to do so on this form.

This is the first year that we are able to offer sliding scale table payment. This payment option will be available to all accepted exhibitors at $0- $50 for a half table and $0-$100 for a full table. (For more information on sliding scale payments and how it will work for LAZF tablers, please read our FAQs here: https://lazinefest.com/sliding-scale-faqs/)

Because of limited space, we encourage those who are in a position to team up with other zine makers/collectives/distros to share table space by filling out a tabling application together. Applying as an individual is not discouraged, but sharing table space will allow for more of your zines to be represented at this year’s Fest.

For more information relating to this application, please see: https://lazinefest.com/2018/12/31/things-to-consider-for-the-lazf-application/

As a final reminder, filling out this form DOES NOT guarantee you a table. Because of high demand and limited space we cannot offer a table to every applicant.

You will be notified by Wednesday, February 26, 2019 of your application status.

This part of the application helps us determine if you meet our application criteria (that at least 80% of what you are selling is zines) and allows us to curate a more well-rounded Zine Fest. Please include genres, titles, number of issues, and any additional information that would give us a complete picture of what you will be tabling. // A NOTE ABOUT ZINE PRICING: Accessible prices are a major plus. We understand zine production costs can vary depending on how your zine is made, but we encourage you to offer a diverse price range for the zines you plan to sell at the Fest.
To help us get an idea of what will be for sale at your table, please upload up to 10 images of your zines.
You will have to sign in to your Google account to do this. Files will be uploaded to *your* Google Drive. If you do not have a Google/Gmail account, please send an email with up to 10 images of your work to INFO@LAZINEFEST.COM.

Have any of your zines been reviewed online or in a publication? If yes, here is where you can share links to those reviews.
If you have multiple links, please separate links with a comma. Not having links to share here does NOT negatively influence your application.
If you'd like to upload a PDF of one of your zines for us to consider as part of your application, you may upload it here.
You may upload one PDF of your zines, if you have one to share. Not having a PDF of one of your zines does NOT negatively influence your application.
Of all the items you plan to display at your table at LAZF, about how many of them are currently complete? *
"Complete" means totally composed right now and printed—basically, ready to be put on a table and presented.
Will you be selling anything besides zines/DIY publications at your table? *
Please remember we REQUIRE that AT LEAST 80% of the items sold at your table be zines/DIY publications.
If YES, what will those items be?
Please list all the non-zine items you'll be selling. Please note, any non-zine items sold at the fest should fit on your table. No garment racks or small book shelves that take up floor space are allowed.
Which of the following years, if any, have you previously applied for and received a table at LAZF? *
If you've tabled 3+ years at the L.A. Zine Fest, please list any NEW (completed + in the works) zines you haven't presented at a previous L.A. Zine Fest that you plan to present this year.
