Apply to Seattle Mini Maker Faire 2013
Have fun, be detailed, and forgive any redundancy. Any questions can be directed to our Maker Outreach Coordinator at
. This is NOT the correct application form for FOOD VENDORS, nor for performances.
Does your project include a hands-on activity?
Showing the public your project does NOT constitute a hands-on activity. Can the public interact with your project? Can they modify, operate, or otherwise cause something to happen with your project? Or can they make things at your booth or workshop?
Be descriptive! We use this information to decide if we will accept your application or not. Your project website and photos help a lot, too. A great description (and photos) show interesting skills, tools, or techniques that you used to create your project. A finished project is best, but a partially finished project with most of the components working may be just as interesting. Other criteria: family friendly, novelty, level of interactivy, and awesomeness.

Commercial Maker / Vendor Exhibits
If you would like to sell your own creations at Maker Faire, you are welcome to do so as a "Commercial Maker". Commercial Makers are responsible for their own business transactions - whether it be via cash, credit card, barter, or some other means. The fee for Commercial Makers is $100, which will be invoiced in advance and payable prior to receiving your Maker credentials. NOTE: FOOD VENDORS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS CATEGORY.
I DO plan to sell merchandise at Seattle Mini Maker Faire as a "Commercial Maker"
I DO NOT intend to sell merchandise at Seattle MIni Maker Faire.
If you ARE a Commercial Maker, what do you plan to sell?
Type of Proposal
Note: this is the wrong form for food vendors, presentations, and musical performances. The difference between a Commercial Maker and a Corporate Sponsor is a matter of what your company makes and sells. Do you make what you sell, or do you resell things that other people make? Are your products mass-produced or craftsman styled (or small batch 3D printed, or small batch circuit boards runs fewer than 1000).
Maker booth, standard 10' x 10'
Maker booth, BIGGER than 10' x 10'
