Frequently Asked Questions
When is the 2017 WAF?
Friday – Sunday, July 7-9.
Can I send in my application, payment, and photos by mail in 2017?
No, please complete our online application for the 2017 festival. Here you can apply, pay, and upload photos all in one convenient place.
What if I don’t understand how to apply, pay, and upload photos online?
Ask the 15 year-old next door to give you hand or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and we’ll call you and walk you through the process.
What format should my photos be in for submission?
JPEG or PDF are best.
What kinds of photos do I need to submit? What’s the photo limit?
No prints or CD’s accepted. Submit your photos online.
5 minimum, 10 maximum and no more than 25 MB in size for each photo
1 recent photo of you creating your product
1-3 photos of booth setup at show
3-5 photos of your 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. 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 your debit or 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. If you miss the deadline, 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.
When and how will Accepted Artists be notified?
By email on April 3rd
