Artist Alley Submissions are Open!

Calling all artists!

Northwest Fan Fest applications for Artist alley are now OPEN, and we will be taking portfolios until Dec 5, 2015. Successful applicants will be notified via email by no later than Dec 15, 2014.

We welcome artists of all sorts to apply. Visual artists, literary artists, 3D artists, fabric artists, leather artists, are all welcome at NWFF! This year, there is not only our standard artist alley, but we are also pleased to offer our Night Time Artist Alley event for artists who might not be able to afford or commit to a full three day table, but would still like to have a shot at showing their work at NWFF. The Night Time Artist Alley is a one day table, taking place on Saturday, May 30th from 6pm to 12am outside the main venue in a “night market” style event.

We had an OUTSTANDING artist alley last year, and this year, we’d like to see it be even bigger and better!

Tables for the Artist Alley this year are $150 for standard table, and $200 for a corner placement. The full rules for the AA can be found here. Night Time Artist Alley tables for Saturday, May 30, 2015 are only $50. The AA rules still apply to Night Time AA participants as well.
