Smudge! Expo 2014 Exhibitor Application
The Smudge! Expo is taking place on Saturday, March 8, 2014, from noon to 6 p.m. at Artisphere in Arlington, Va. Smudge is a new comics arts expo meant to showcase independent comics and inspire attendees to become storytellers themselves. Smudge will feature exhibitors in the Artisphere Ballroom, presenters in the Black Box Theater and hands-on workshops in the classroom. While the Artisphere Town Hall bar will be open, the event is family friendly and will have plenty of activities for kids, such as drawing and making pin buttons. (Exhibitors will also be designated if their table is all-age appropriate.)
Smudge is a curated show. About 45 exhibitors will be selected to display and sell their work. The fee to exhibit is $55 for space which will include a 6-foot table and 2 chairs (provided by the venue). Exhibitors will be expected to help promote the show via social media.
To apply, fill out the form below and submit it by January 17th. Selected exhibitors will be notified by January 20. (Payment must be made by January 25 to secure the spot.)
We hope to have a nice mix of comics arts-related exhibitors (minicomics, graphic novels, web comics, editorial cartoonists, print makers, publishers, etc.).
Smudge is the brainchild of local comic booker Matt Dembicki and event manager Tina Henry. Smudge's venue sponsor is the amazing Artisphere in Arlington, Va.
