We’re delighted to reveal our poster for this year’s BCZF! Designed and drawn by the very talented Mike Driver. Check out his work here!

Don’t forget, you can apply for a table at the zine fair until Tuesday 19th May at 6pm. Full details here.

Table applications open!

We are excited to announce that applications for the fair are now open for zine makers who’d like to have a table.  A half-table (approx 3′ x 2′) costs £16.

We are a curated show, which means that there’s an application process involved to exhibiting at the fair. The way we do this is to ask for you to provide a bit of info about you and the kind of work you might like to sell before we can offer you a table.

Full info on how to apply, including the application form, can be found on our ‘Apply’ page.

Applications close Tuesday 19th May 2015 at 6pm.


Design our poster!

We’re looking for a brilliant illustrator to design the promotional material for this year’s Bristol Comic and Zine Fair!

We’re looking for a bold, dynamic poster that captures our approach to DIY arts and our love of comics, zines, illustration, and print.

The poster will appear online and on our printed materials and be the visual focus for this year’s fair.

There is a fee of £75 for this commission, and an additional option of table space at the fair.

Deadline for expressions of interest is Saturday 7th March 2015, 10pm

All the details of the brief and how to be considered can be found here.


Bristol Comic and Zine Fair will return to The Station in 2015.

After another great year for the fair, we’re delighted to announce that BCZF 2015 will be held on Saturday 3rd October at the Station, our home since 2013.

Expect the usual mix of artists, makers, writers and publishers from the UK’s vibrant DIY scene. We’ll be opening applications for tables in the Spring, so watch this space for news.

It’s also our FIFTH BIRTHDAY and we’re hoping to do a few exciting things, so watch this space for news about fundraisers, parties and more.
