About the Jury Process
All work will be evaluated using a ‘blind jury’ system. Jurors will not see artists’ names or other identifiers. Artists are asked to input their artist statement and process description without names or other specific identifying information.
All work will be juried using the following criteria at 10 points each for a total of 100 points:
The Application process includes the online application, submission of photos, Artist Statement & Process, and payment of jurying fee.
Due to the nature of our all-volunteer staff, all artist applications will be submitted online for the 2016 show. If you need help, please contact your local art organization or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

For jury selection, send seven high quality photos that tell your story as an artist and present your best case to the jurors. Send five photos of your most current artwork, one photo of yourself working in studio or workshop, and one of your booth. Since we are using a blind jury process we ask that you do not include your name or logo in any of the photos. If your name or signature is visible it will be blocked out in the photos before they are sent to the jury.
Use your images to tell your creative story. You may want to include in your five artwork photos one of a collection of similar pieces and one of a detail shot, close up so that jurors see your fine craftsmanship.
Format your photos as JPEGs, 4” x 6” with a resolution of between 72 and 150 px and send to email@example.com
If you are selected for the show you may be asked to submit photos at a higher resolution (300+ dpi) for publicity purposes, if needed.
NOTE: Jurors must see new, fresh images from every applicant, including returning artists, representing your most current work.
Share your story! Why do you create? What inspires you? How is your artwork unique? These statements help jurors with their decisions. Do not include your name, business name, logo or other identifiers. 200 words or less
Describe your creative process. How do you work? Do you use unique tools, mediums, or techniques? Describe your process from idea or inspiration to gallery ready work. Do you make your art completely by yourself or do you have someone else assist you? Please explain briefly. 200 words or less.
If accepted, your Artist Statement and Artist’s Process (as you write them) will become your artist profile for Art in the Wilds show programs along with your two photos as mentioned above. 50,000 programs are printed and widely distributed. (see the 2015 Show Program).
