TCAF 2017 Exhibitor Application Form

Welcome to the Exhibitor Application for the 2017 Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF). TCAF 2017 will feature a day of Professional Development Programming on Friday May 12th, with the main exhibition on Saturday May 13th and Sunday May 14th, 2017, at Toronto Reference Library in beautiful Toronto, Canada.

**Please read all of the following carefully.**

If you’re interested in exhibiting at TCAF 2017, please register online using the application form below. We are asking all creators, collectives, and self-publishers interested in exhibiting at TCAF 2017 to register online using the application form. If you are a full-line publisher (more than 10 releases per year) or will require multiple table-spaces, please also contact for further information and instructions.

NOTE: If you are a member of a collective or group of creators all planning on exhibiting/tabling together, please register each member individually. Have only one member of your group select the table size you would like and have the rest of your members select “No table, I will be sitting with my publisher/group” when asked, and then include the name of your group in the space provided.

NOTE: We are asking creators to exhibit every other year. If you exhibited in 2016 it is highly unlikely that you will be given a space for 2017, without extenuating circumstances (i.e., a major new print release, a gallery show, etc.). Most publishers are exempted from this rule.

Applications for TCAF 2017 are due on Friday, October 14th, 2016. Please note that filling out this form does not guarantee table space at TCAF 2017.

Because of the high volume of submissions we have historically received, preference for exhibition space will be given to:

a) Comics creators (versus illustrators/animators/fine artists/other creative persons),
b) Creators with new major works debuting at or around TCAF 2017,
c) Those creators who did not exhibit in 2016.

TCAF exhibitors will be chosen by the TCAF Director and Staff based on a number of criteria, so please be thorough in filling out the form below. We'll be contacting everyone on or by December 12th to let them know if their registration and table space requests have been accepted.

If you have any problems, questions, or concerns, please contact


- Christopher Butcher, Festival Director.

P.S. - After you press “Submit” you may need to scroll back up to the top of the page to see your confirmation message. We will also be emailing confirmations within 96 hours (4 days) of your application. If you do not receive a confirmation within that time period, please contact to confirm your that registration has been received.
