Juried events have a selection committee for art & craft exhibitors, and require that you submit slides or photos of your work or products. The selection committee (the jury) reviews all applications before choosing exhibitors for the event. Sometimes there is a nonrefundable jury fee for these events.
Jury standards (and jury fees) will vary a lot -- some are very selective, and others simply want to prevent too much repetition in event exhibitors.
This is either the date all bookings will be done or the deadline to receive applications (if they use an application process). In either case, contact the event well in advance (4-6 months) of the posted deadline. If a festival is all booked up before their posted deadline, that is the nature of the business.
The ability to upload documents and applications is a Pro Member feature. For more information on Pro Membership, please go here. To become a Pro Member, go here.
To upload your application, go to "My Account" and look for the "My Applications" link across the gray toolbar. Click that, and then select "Upload Document". Add a title and description for your document. Keep in mind that when visitors go to download your application, they will be taken to a page with all of your uploaded documents listed, so make your title specific to that particular application (ie: if this is a vendor application for an event, list the name of the event in the title).
Next, choose your application file. This file needs to be available for upload on the computer or network you're attempting to upload from. We accept the following file formats: pdf, doc, docx, odt, txt. If your application is in a different format, please convert it before attempting to upload. There are many free document editors available to do so with. If you have previously uploaded documents or applications into your profile, and want to make multiple copies, click the "Choose From Uploaded Documents" documents, and select a file from there to use as your new uploaded document.
After your title and description are set, and your file is selected, click "Upload Document" to upload it. If you need to edit or remove documents after uploading them, go back under the My Applications tab, and select the appropriate action there.
Your applications are available to view & download from your profile and your event listings.
