Optional Payment Plans
Payment plans by cashier’s check, money orders, and credit card are available for all space fees. Contact Annette in our office at 847 926 4300 for more information. No personal or business checks will be accepted.
All proceeds go to the artists. All artists are responsible by law to pay applicable city, state and federal taxes on work sold. Tax forms are available by clicking here.
A Best of Show Award, Category Awards, and Outstanding Achievement Awards will be given at most festivals. All Festival Award Winners are invited to return the following year without jury for the festival they were an award winner in.
Jury/Application Fees are nonrefundable in whole or part and are not a guarantee or promise that an artist will be accepted into a festival. Refunds for Space/Booth Fees paid in whole or part will be issued a full refund of the amount received, minus a $50.00 per show processing fee, if the request is made in writing such as an email, fax or certified mail on or before April 8, 2019. Refund requests made by phone, fax, email or certified mail after April 8, 2019 will not be processed and are ineligible for a refund in whole or part.
Throughout the summer festival season, full upgrade refunds will be made to artists on an ongoing basis if the artist request for a corner, double booth or electricity could not be met.
After the initial jury, artists may be put on the wait list. If this occurs, artists will have to wait until a position opens up for them. Typically, we will not be able to tell if wait list positions will be open until after the registration deadline (March 8, 2019). We will start taking wait list artists by availability based on category and wait list number (1 being the first off the wait list). Once a position becomes available, we will notify artists through email or by phone. Any official festival wait list artist is welcome to show up the morning of a festival during set-up and register to see if any no-show spaces become available. Amdur Productions staff will make the final determination for adding any artists to the festival at that time. Any artist accepted into the festival must come prepared with a photo ID and booth fee in the form of cash, cashier’s check, money order or credit card.
We use our best effort to provide artists with free overnight and over-sized parking for all festivals. In the big city shows, such as Chicago and Evanston, parking is limited and therefore can have a cost. In these cases, we try to make arrangements for artists with a discounted rate at a nearby lot.
All festivals attempt to be fully accessible. Special needs of artists are a continuing concern for Amdur Productions. Please advise us if we can help in any way.
The art festivals produced by Amdur Productions present artists’ hand original work, not the work of mass production studios. All work displayed must be presented in a finished manner; two-dimensional art should be framed or equivalent. The festival committee reserves the right to refuse exhibition of work not consistent with the quality and cohesiveness of submitted images and these guidelines.
You may not exhibit work purchased from other artists or groups for resale. Artists themselves, not spouses or other representatives, must be present at registration and throughout the entire festival. Artists provide their own tents, tables and chairs unless other rental plans are made. A maximum of two persons are suggested to work in a 10×10 booth at any time. Artists showing separately produced work under one name are not allowed to exhibit in the same booth. Exhibitors must check in with a photo ID.
Application to a festival does not guaranty participation. Dates, hours and specifics of each festival are subject to change. Should a festival date change be required and the artist is not able to participate, a full refund of fees paid will be made to the artist for that festival.
Acceptance into a festival does not mean participation. Artists MUST register by the registration due date or the rental space will be let go to an artist on the wait list.
To insure fairness for every artist, the rules contained in this application will be strictly enforced. Artists and their staff not complying with festival policies will be asked to leave the festival, without refund.
