The registration for the fair of Fanzines Festival is now open !

This fifth edition of the Fanzines ! Festival will be held from the 1st to the 31st of October, and the whole month will be focused on exhibitions, encounters and gatherings, parties and workshops, for the sake of celebrating the small press and its artists.
During this whole month of festivities, the week of the 12th to the 18th of October is sure to be particularly intense, as there will be a different event taking place every day and will culminate with the fanzine fair for the week-end.
This fair will take place on Saturday, October 17th from 11 A.M. to 8 P.M and on Sunday the 18th from 1 P.M. to 7 P.M. à the Marguerite Duras Médiathèque,115 rue de Bagnolet, Paris 20e.
More than thirty publishers from France and elsewhere will rally together and will welcome an audience growing wider every year.
In order to accomodate more people, we invite you to choose between half a table of 60 cm of large or a whole table of 1,20M of large. You will also be able ask for a wall behind your stand (when possible). On saturday  night, you won’t need to pack everything, as the premises will be locked and secured.

To register, please complete the following form before midnight, the 24th of August :

This year we demand from the welcomed publishers a little contribution, asking for the small amount of 10 € pour half a table or 20 € for a whole table. This contribution will help the team of volunteers of Fanzines! to organise this festival in the best possible conditions.
Please note: every year, the number of applications exceeds the number of places available and we cannot, although we wish we could, accommodate everybody. We will let you know if your application is confirmed on the 1st of September. We strongly encourage applicants to regroup together and to let us know you did so, so we can give you more space on a collective table.


Merci à tous les artistes qui ont participé à l’exposition 10×10=10 et à tous les curieux et aux acheteurs qui se sont montrés très fair-play malgré l’attente et la chaleur.

La vente a tenu toutes ses promesses et le programme de l’édition 2015 sera dévoilé en septembre.

Si vous voulez mieux voir toutes les œuvres qui nous ont été envoyées, vous pouvez aller sur le tumblr de 10×10.

Call for Contributions 2015

The fifth Fanzines! Festival will take place this fall in Paris from the 1st to the 31 October. During the whole month, there will be multiple exhibitions around zines, drawing and comics.

As every year, the centrepiece of the festival will be an exhibition of fanzines and self-published books from all over the world at the Marguerite Duras Public Library in the 20th arrondissement. The idea is for you to send us a copy of one of your fanzines/publications, which we will exhibit at the Marguerite Duras Public Library from 1 to 31 October 2015. The exhibition will be seen by a large and diverse public – that of the public library as well as that of the festival. After the exhibition, a selection of 150 zines will become part of the collection of the public libraries of Paris. It will also appear in the online catalogue.

Please note that due to the large number of contributions we have received last year, we have to limit the contributions to one zine per artist/collective.


  • Send us one zine of your production
  • Fill out the online form, and before hitting “submit” please print out the form.
  • Send us your zine together with the printout of the online form before June 1st, 2015.


  • 1 June 2015 (postal stamp)


    125 rue Etienne Marcel
    93100 Montreuil

Thank you in advance for the contributions! See you in Paris this October!
