Call for Maker Applications

Apply Now For Seattle Mini Maker Faire 2015

The application details and links are on the EMP Museum website. Click here to apply to exhibit, present, or perform at Seattle Mini Maker Faire.

The application deadline is January 10th, but don’t wait until the last minute!  The application asks for a lot of information and we’d like to talk with you about your application to help us decide which projects to accept to the Greatest Show and Tell in Washington!

Apply now to exhibit all weekend to demo your projects through booths, installations, workshops, presentations, and/or performances and includes non-commercial and commercial makers. Makers will be selected based on how unique and impressive their projects are. We are particularly looking for exhibits that are interactive and highlight the process of making things.

This is a fairly detailed application and will take between 15-20 minutes to complete. You will be asked to submit a project name, description, contact information, photos, and some additional specifics on your exhibit requirements. Please complete the application with as much information as possible and have fun with it.

Call for Makers, Seattle!

Seattle Mini Maker Faire showcases the amazing work of all kinds and ages of makers—anyone who embraces the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. Join the fun and apply to run a booth or workshop at Seattle Mini Maker Faire, June 8-9 at the Seattle Center!  Applications are due by April 1st.

The first step to participating in Seattle Mini Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups, such as hobbyist clubs and schools. Please provide a short description of what you make and what you would like to bring to Seattle Mini Maker Faire, including links to photographs and/or videos of your project. We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and highlight the process of making things.  

Click these links to learn more about how to apply as a Maker  (adults) or a Young Maker (ages 10-17).
