The attendants who do not live in Croatia can apply for ZagrebDox Pro's scholarship that covers travel and accommodation expenses for the workshop. ZagrebDox Pro will provide up to six scholarships.

Along with project teams, up to six observers can attend the closed sessions of ZagrebDox Pro. Several sessions open to the public will be organized as well.

Directors and producers can take part in the workshop. In specific cases, they can be accompanied by a scriptwriter, cinematographer or editor. While teams of participants generally have two members, they can have up to three members.
