Start your engines. With competition for a place at a UK convention now so fierce that several events have shut down applications within a few hours of opening them, Thought Bubble’s 2014 festival have gone with the eminently sensible decision to host a curated festival. That means anybody can get their application in, and the organisers will decide which applicants are successful or not.
This is good news for the mainstays who struggled for a placement last year, and offers more hope to upcoming small-press people who aren’t constantly watching twitter, waiting for the starting pistol. It also means you have a small window of time now to apply yourself, if you’re looking for a place.
Get to it!
