Who is eligible for this opportunity?
Artists, makers, designers and craftspeople who hand-make their own work. We do not accept submissions from designers who outsource production of items through a 3rd party, and we do not accept applications from sellers of supplies. We are not accepting applications from Printmakers as we have a printmaking exhibition running alongside the fair.
How many works can I submit?
You can attach up to 10 images as part of your application. To help us with selection, please upload a minimum of 4. It is vital to the selection process that the images you submit are of a good quality and give a true idea of the work you wish to exhibit. Please upload JPG images, no larger than 1MB.

How do you chose exhibitors?
A small commitee will review your application and images. The commitee will be given the task of putting together a well-balanced show, considering new and returning exhibitors, emerging and established artists and an interesting mix of genres. It is important that the images you submit are representative of the quality of the work. The panel will be able to research your website, but time is always tight and first impressions from the submitted images are crucial. The decision of the selection panel is final and unfortunately no discussion can be entered into once the selection has been made
What happens if I am chosen?
You will be contacted with further information.
