MAKER APPLICATION: Portland Mini Maker Faire

Please complete the below application with as much information as possible. Applications are due no later than 11:59pm on July 31, 2013. OMSI has gathered a maker selection committee who will review all applications and decide who is the best fit for the event. Due to capacity constraints, unfortunately we are unable to accept all applications. We will also look for projects that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things.

If the primary purpose of your booth is to sell then you are considered a Commercial Maker and the fee is $200 for the weekend. If you will be showing off your project and providing interactive components, participation is free. There may be a small fee for tent and table rentals if you are unable to bring your own.

Acceptances will be distributed no later than August 9. We appreciate your application!
