If you are entering any type of jewelry (glass, metal, etc.) you must apply in the jewelry category.

If you are entering work in more than one category, you must submit five images for each category, as well as an application for each category. This requires a separate and distinct profile in ZAPP. You must also submit a non-refundable jury fee of $25.00 for each additional application. You must exhibit your qualifying work at the festival. For instance, if you submitted applications in both photography and 2D mixed media, but you were accepted for your photography work, you must exhibit your photography work in your booth at the festival. And, this qualifying work must be the majority of your booth set up. Because of space limitations, artists who DO qualify in multiple categories will be assigned only one booth space. Please consider this information as you decide whether you wish to submit applications in more than one category.

A panel of qualified art professionals will review submitted images. Acceptance will be determined by score and category to assure a balanced show. A minimum score-based waiting list will be maintained in each category with cancellations filled from the waiting list. Date of application will serve as a tiebreaker. You will receive notification by January 7, 2019 if you have been accepted as an exhibitor or are on the waiting list. Artists not qualifying for the show will also be notified by January 7, 2019.

The images you choose will be critical to your acceptance into the show and should focus on the style and techniques used. The jury has only your digital images with which to judge your work.

A.  Submitted images should represent your entire price range of items.
B.  You must submit four (4) images of your work – with NO person, sign, or business name or logo visible
C.  You must submit one (1) image of your booth display – with NO person, sign, or business name or logo visible
D.  The images submitted must be representative of at least 90% of your work.  Jubilee staff will compare your images to the work displayed in your booth at the festival in order to maintain the quality of the show.

Exhibitors who work together in producing a particular type of work shall be regarded as joint exhibitors and need to submit only one application. To see if you qualify as a joint exhibitor, see “Festival Rule #3.”

1. ALL WORK MUST BE ORIGINAL, DESIGNED, EXECUTED AND PRESENTED BY THE APPLICANT/ARTIST AND OF PROFESSIONAL QUALITY. THESE GUIDELINES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. Our intention is to provide exhibits that are not displays of mass produced merchandise. Unacceptable items for exhibiting include, but are not limited to: kits, decoupage and similar items, food items, plants (except Bonsai), books, manufactured items, records, tapes, CDs, polished rocks, and works utilizing materials from endangered or protected species. Commercial prints of original art cannot exceed 50 percent of the artwork offered for sale. We reserve the right to cause any unacceptable work to be removed from any exhibit or to cause any exhibit to be removed which does not reflect standards and goals set forth by Festival officials. If you question whether any or all of your work is in compliance with these guidelines, you are advised to write or phone well in advance of the show. Ribbons won at any other art show or any previous Spring Jubilee cannot be displayed.

2. Persons who represent several artists are not eligible, nor are persons who represent a store or commercial business.

3. “Joint exhibitors” is defined as two individuals who ordinarily work together in producing a particular craft or form of art. Persons who represent several artisans are not eligible, nor are persons who represent a commercial business. Those who do qualify as joint exhibitors are eligible for cash awards. Family members who work independently of each other are not considered joint exhibitors. In this case each person must submit a separate application for jurying.

4. Each exhibitor must maintain a display of his/her work for the entire duration of Spring Jubilee and must be present during festival hours. Anyone failing to do so will forfeit any award money and may be excluded from future shows.

5. All items offered at Spring Jubilee must be approved by the Jury Committee. If, after inspection, the items offered at Spring Jubilee are different than those approved, artisans will be asked to remove the items or will be dismissed from Spring Jubilee.

7. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited by ordinance of the Town of Pendleton. Violators are subject to fine and dismissal from Spring Jubilee.

8. Pets are strictly prohibited on the Village Green and around all artist booth spaces.

9. All accepted applicants must provide their own tents, which may not be larger than 10'x10'.

10. Any work that won a cash award at last year's Spring Jubilee is not eligible for judging. Those exhibiting jointly will be considered as one exhibit and will be subject to the same rules and guidelines as individual exhibitors.

11. Spring Jubilee will not be cancelled or postponed due to inclement weather.

Spring Jubilee officials reserve the right to make adjustments to these guidelines and to make other decisions in order to ensure a successful event and fairness to the exhibitors.
