Grants available for DCZF 2017

Following the example of Richmond Zinefest, we will be offering a grant to help elevate the voices of people that are often marginalized in the zine community:

  • people of color
  • people with disabilities
  • people who identify as LBGTQIA+
  • people who earn low incomes

Each grant includes a $50 stipend and a quarter table at Zinefest 2017. Grant applications are included as part of the online registration form. If you’ve already applied through mail-in registration, we will ask you about your interest when we get in touch about tabling information.

We will award eight grants, thanks to donations from the DC Zinefest community. If we receive more than eight qualifying projects, we will use a lottery to determine recipients.
