Maker Faire Detroit Application Tips!

    • This is a brand new application system, provided by Maker Media for all Maker Faires. There are some nice enhancements – you can save a return to the application if you can’t complete all one time.


    • Read EVERYTHING! We know it can be tempting to skip a line or two to get right into the application, BUT all the information is extremely important to know, so please, read everything!Be as descriptive as possible about your project and fill as much detail as possible, the application cannot be changed after it’s submitted.


    • SPELLCHECK! Especially your e-mail address; e-mail will be our primary source of communication. If your e-mail is spelled incorrectly, or has an extra space, you could miss your opportunity to show off at the Faire!


    • Prepare good photos, or video content, you can provide with your application. These will populate the new and improved Maker Faire Detroit website if you are accepted!


    • Think about who your Booth Assistants will be. You will be provided a link to the assistant registration (this is different than the application).
