Due to the restrictions in Melbourne over the last 12 months (but not wanting to give up the good times), we’ve decided to run Festival of the Photocopier online in February, 2021!
We know it’s not the same as being in a space filled with 300 to 500 people but we still want to be able to see all the zines created by our community over the last 12 months - we thought a website would be the best way to do that.
Visit the Stallholders page to view all artists featured and read a little about their works! If you’re looking for something in particular you can use the tags to filter for that type of content.
If you’re after a little inspiration, check out the DIY Resources page. We've created a collection of our favourite zine related tutorials, articles, videos and even games!
And if you’re after something else, you can watch our virtual launch gig, check out some zinester interviews, join a guided tour of Tegan E Webb's Animal Crossing island, celebrate the launch of RutZine #200, hang with the gang from Glom Press,or take a peek at the zines submitted FotP-Swap! - our first contact-free community zine swap.
We hope you enjoy your time at fotp.online!
We are ardent defenders of zine culture!
Sticky Institute is a co-working and retail space dedicated entirely to zines, located in the heart of Melbourne, Victoria, underneath Flinders Street Station. Sticky first opened its doors in 2001 and is proud to still be a non-profit, volunteer-run space, run by the local zine community for the zine community!

One of her favourite projects to date is Good Boy, a semi-silent tale that traverses the poignant terrains of euthanasia and the canine afterlife. It has been shortlisted for the 2020 Ledger Awards.
