BEFORE YOU REGISTER for the waitlist, PLEASE READ
NOCAZ 2019 will be held at the New Orleans Main Branch Library on April 6th and 7thth. Exhibitor registration will close on December 31st 2018. You are signing up for the waitlist. Priority is given to those who signed up by the deadline.
NOCAZ is not an explicitly political event. But we want you to know that we are creating a space that supports people and movements that are resisting oppression and injustice in the world. We also want to foster an environment that portrays race, gender, class, and variety of heritage as a positive thing! Please don't bring any racism, classicism, sexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, shame, or judgement into our space!
We also love satire, and cynical humor and understand that there is a very blurry line that defines those things. So if you aren't sure if your content has crossed the line, just ask us! email@example.com
NOCAZ is a comic and zine event. While we encourage our exhibitors to bring prints, patches, pins, etc to supplement their comics and zines, please do not apply if you are not selling comics and/or zines! There are a plethora of print, art, and craft events in this city that are wonderful, and you should table at those. No shade, we're just about the books!
Please fill out the entire form to the best of your ability. You might know some of the organizers personally and think it’s a silly thing to have to do, but your registration might be reviewed by a new organizer or someone you don’t know.
Once we have reviewed all of the applications (sometime in early January), we will send out exhibitor confirmations and table fee requests. You are not confirmed to exhibit at NOCAZ 2019 until you receive a confirmation email from an organizer.
We provide tables free of charge to residents of Louisiana, Mississippi, & Alabama. There is a 15-30 dollar sliding scale table fee for accepted exhibitors not from those states. NOCAZ runs on a tight budget and all of the organizers are volunteers, so if you can afford to pay $30, please do. If you are local to the deep south and find yourself able to chip in (again, not at all required), please feel free to do so!
NOCAZ FEST provides free tables to all Louisiana, Mississippi, & Alabama residents because we feel that it is vitally important to provide an accessible arts event to our neighbors in the deep South. If you are in need of financial support, please feel free to check the "Yes" box in the scholarship portion of the form.
