UPDATE: Call for Makers has been extended to Tuesday, March 27th. Read here for details.
A quick reminder that the Call for Makers for Maker Faire Bay Area in May closes tonight at 11:59PM PST. So whether you’ll eventually be traveling from the east coast, abroad, or from a neighboring county, adjust your time zones and make sure you get your application in on time. As expected, there is a last-day deluge of incoming applications and emails, and the Maker Faire team are doing their best to field all inquiries and requests, and equally excited by the awesome projects being proposed for this year’s event!
And for makers looking to offset their travel costs, or simply to infuse their project with some additional funding in order to take it to the next level, consider applying to the Road to Maker Faire Challenge. One lucky maker will receive a $2,000 stipend to be used towards the fabrication of their project, as well as travel and hotel accommodation costs if they so choose. That deadline is April 5th, so there’s still time to apply even after submitting your Maker Faire application.
And of course I look forward to seeing you and your awesome project at Maker Faire Bay Area!
