Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if you guys know of any good zine/art/craft fairs in and around Melbourne?

Thanks!

Hey All - I've been asked to co-ordinate the TINA zine side of the TINA Sunday fair now - please email me at quinlivan.e@gmail.com to book a half table or full table stall . Thanks to the support of the NYFW and the conversations happening here, online and in person about the prohibitive cost of stalls, TINA is now able to offer the zine holders free stalls for the event and free public liability to those who need it. It will be a first in first serve basis for tables, but I'm looking forward to seeing all the new publications being made around Australia, and meeting some more new faces at the annual fair. Cheers, Elouise - Smells Like Zines Distro

Oh I don't think it's wrong of TINA - it's their zine fair so they can choose to do whatever they like. From what I hear the insurance cost at least is a requirement of the Newcastle City Council. But inevitably it will exclude a lot of the smaller ziners from participating. Really, who would bother going apart from the bigger comic stores and the zine distros?

I was talking to a distro proprietor about two years ago who mentioned that the TINA zine fair had gone down in quality of recent years. That's sad - I remember how excited I was when I lived in Newcastle and discovered it, when it was still smallish and they just held it in a tiny art gallery.

I put the info up about the TINA zine fair before I knew the details. Just so you know they are also asking for payment up front before your application is considered. So that's $45 before you know if you're even accepted. Pkus insurance etc.........

Comment by TimT on August 20, 2012 at 7:05pm

Vanessa - wow, $45 a table - plus insurance - plus (for those of us who live outside Newcastle) travel and accommodation*. Okay, that's just unaffordable.

*In my case I'd stay with parents.
