General Information

JURY PROCESS:  Applications are now being accepted.  The jury meets weekly and acceptance letters are sent out to accepted fine artists and craft vendors each week until all available spots are filled at which time artists will be placed on a wait list.

 

JURY PROCESS
 

Jurying is conducted in-house by Paragon staff.   This is a “blind” jury process which means artist scoring is based solely on the images presented without consideration of the artist name, artist location, or reference to additional information such as websites. Juror decisions are based 70% upon the quality of work portrayed in the images submitted for the jury process, and 30% based on your booth presentation. If you do not submit a booth image you will automatically lose 3 points off your final score. Your booth image should not have the artist or any signage with the artist name or business name visible and should represent the setup we will actually see at the event. Images are viewed simultaneously in a horizontal format, grouped by media.
