York Open Studios Call for artists 2021
Deadline: 30/08/2020 | Published: 02/06/2020 | City: York | Region: North Yorkshire | Country: United Kingdom | York Open Studios
York Open Studios is York's largest arts festival which takes place on the 17/18 and 24/25 April 2021. We are inviting applications for our 2021 event.
We had to cancel our 2020 event because of coronavirus, so for 2021 we will be hosting many of our 2020 artists but we are always open to all artists who would like to apply. You must live or have a permanent studio within a ten mile radius of York City centre to be eligible and we welcome applications from artists at all stages in their career, including recent graduates who pay a reduced fee.
Due to this year's cancellation we will be working on a reduced budget for 2021 and will have to cut some costs. Our full directory will still be produced but may only be available as a PDF which will be distributed to our current mailing list and made widely available. We plan to produce a paper map with brief details about all our artists; each artist will also have a dedicated page on our website and will be showcased across social media. We will also continue to negotiate wide media coverage in newspapers, magazines and radio.
We charge £110 for successful applications. Recent graduates (within 2 years) pay a reduced fee of £55. Artists pay commission of 10% on their total sales if they make more than £250.

Your images must be high quality and show your work clearly. They will be used by our panel during selection and then if you are successful they will be used on our website, marketing materials, social media. We do not expect professional photos but they should be polished, print ready and taken with a professional outlook. We reserve the right to crop your images.
