Art Fair Juries – Everything you want to know!
Have you ever wondered what your images look like during a projected jury or whether your booth shot is really important? Are you curious to know what makes an application unique to jurors? Whether you’re a seasoned festival artist or new to the industry, join us for two sessions that tackle these questions and more!

Jury Workshop – Public Portfolio Critique
A panel will discuss image submissions in terms of composition, technical presentation, artistic presentation, and image quality. This session presents a great opportunity to see how images appear in the projected jury format and to also receive valuable feedback on improving jury images. The free application for this workshop opens on ZAPP on Nov. 1, 2017. LEARN MORE.

Mystery Unmasked: An Inside Look at the Jury Process
This session gives you an in-depth look at the inner-workings of some juries, including discussions on artist statements, booth shots, showing the price range of work, and more. Undoubtedly one of the most crucial parts of an art fair application process, come prepared to learn more about what happens inside the jury room.


ZAPP will offer a roundtrip shuttle between the hotel and Coconut Grove on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, to see the Coconut Grove Arts Festival and St. Stephen’s Art Show. Shuttle spots are available to administrators and artists. For only $25, you can purchase a space on the shuttle when you register.
