What are the Jurors Looking for?
Cohesive body of work, originality, and point of view.
What are My Chances of Getting Into a Festival?
Every year there are a new panel of judges and a new group of artists. The only artists that are invited back are the award winners. There’s always a new opportunity to be accepted into the festivals every year!
What if I Don’t have a Booth Image?
If you don’t have a booth image, you can create a mock set up of your art with two walls for 2D work. You can use skirted tables or pedestals for jewelry and 3D art.
How Do I Upload Images for Jury?
What If I Don’t Have a Tent?
If you don’t have a tent, you can rent one through us! We coordinate tent rentals with a professional tent company that sets up the tent with weights and cover walls and they take the tent down for you at the end of the festival. The fee for this is $275.
Can I still Edit My Application and Change My Images that I’ve Submitted?
Yes. You have up until the application deadline to switch out images, change the order of the images, or add your artist statement.

Who Selects the Artists?
There is a panel of jurors who will be judging the artists who’ve applied for the art festivals. Jurors go through all of the images and assign them a point value. Then the scores are totaled and then artists are ranked according to their scores. We accept the first batch of artists depending on the number of available spaces. As space becomes available, we then go to the waitlist and invite artists in order of rank and media.
Special Extra Tip: No detail is too small! When it comes to submitting jury images and a display image, the details matter. Whether it’s someone in your booth shot, a gaudy background, or poor lighting, it will effect your overall score.
