All applications are juried into the show based on originality, creativity, and mastery level. This process is not negotiable and cannot be compromised due to artists past involvement. Each year the jury process determines the participating artists. Each category has a certain number of allotted spaces available per medium. The top percent of each medium is invited from the jury. Decisions of the jury panel are final.
Wait List Artists
A wait list will be developed based on jury scores to comprise a waiting list of alternatives. Each category has a certain number of allotted spaces available per medium. The top percent of each medium will be invited. Artists will be notified if they are on that waitlist by email.
10x10 for $445 and 10x20 for $885. Corner booths are an additional $85 to guarantee location. Note: Corner and double booth spaces go fast!
Exhibiting Artists are only guaranteed the space they have paid for. The exhibitor’s tent must be a 10x10 or 10x20 space to abide with clearance regulation. NOTE: There is no extra space in-between booths. Tents are butted up next to each other! So please be prepared to put weights inside your tent, if possible (especially if you are placed on West 50th Street because the space is tight).
Artists Awards and On-site Judging
Prize money will be available for 1 Best of Show, 1 Best Display, 6 Awards of Excellence, and 10 Awards of Merit. Each winner will receive a cash prize and exemption from an application fee the following year. The Best of Show winner is also exempt from a booth fee the following year.
