What kinds of photos do I need to submit? What’s the photo limit?
Submit your photos online thru Zapplication
1 photo of booth setup
5 photos of your artwork (If food artist or vendor, please submit current food license and menu as artwork)
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. If we receive an abundance of 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?
Possibly, many categories will be full but occasionally we 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 canvas Fine Art such as painting or drawing on a canvas.
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 same product as you.
When and how will Accepted Artists be notified?
By email thru Zapplication on March 19th, 2021
What if I have emailed you and I did not hear back?
Try looking in your junk email folder. Also, read thru the group emails. If your same inquiry was made by several artists, I may have provided the answer in a group email. As a last resort, call the Whitefish Christian Academy at 406-862-5875 and they will forward me your voice message. All inquiries are generally responded to within one week.
