Why do I need to send a booth picture(s)?
The goal of WAF is to deliver a top-quality arts and crafts show to our patrons. The more polished and professional your booth looks the better your artwork will sell. If there are multiple artists in your category of similar quality a good booth picture(s) may determine which artists are invited to the show.
How can I pay my jury fee?
Online using thru Zapplication using your Paypal account or debit/credit card.
Is my jury fee refundable?
No, all jury fees are non-refundable.
Can I apply after the deadline?
No late applications will be accepted for most categories. Occasionally we still have openings past the deadline. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your craft. If you wish to be notified next year, add yourself to our mailing list so you will be notified when next year’s application becomes available.
What if I don’t see my art category in the list?
Either choose the category that most closely matches your work or select Specialty.
Where is the Fine Art category?
We’ve removed the Fine Art category as we hope to become a show full of fine arts across the mediums. Canvas Art is the replacement category for Fine Art as most artists who previously entered the category did painting or drawing.
How should I describe my artwork?
Please be specific. Rather than wooden kitchen utensils say “handmade, wooden kitchen utensils like spoons, forks, spatulas, and ladles made of prehistoric dinosaur wood in a variety of stain options.” Help us avoid over-duplication of artists who make the exact same product as you.
