Our festival celebrates the comic arts. For this reason, we favor exhibitors who produce and sell comic books. If you have an exceptional request, we suggest you contact us first, but your company must have a strong connection with comics to be considered. Sponsorship opportunities are available for other types of companies, contact us for details.

MCAF is proud to have exhibitors ranging from self-published artists to major publishing houses. To keep our prices affordable for comic artists, we’ve created different price structures depending on whether you’re a comic artist or a publisher/company.

We ask all exhibitors to read our commitment to a Safe and Healthy Environment before submitting their application.

If your application is accepted, you are expected to comply with this policy.
