What is needed to sign up?
Online Art festival is a a juried art community. All artists are juried and screened after joining. Some of the requirements during sign-up are so we can promise our customers that you're a real artist, and you really make your own art. The following list is what we recommend having ready before you start your sign-up.
This is an open text statement about your work and your career as an artist. You might include Artist Bio, Artist Biography, a story about your techniques, inspirations or how you got started.
Anyone can stand beside a piece of art and claim it as their own. But only Artists will have the parts & components, the well used equipment, the partially finished projects, and the ability to document their process, step-by-step. We'll ask to see your works-in-progress to help us jury your art. Please provide enough documentation for us to see that you are, in fact, the Artist. Time lapse videos or photos from each stage of creation are best.
We ask to see documentation of your finished work. If you have a variety of styles, please be sure to submit representations of each.
Feel free to use professional jury photos, website images, or even some quick shots from your phone. We're looking at the product, not your photo editing skills (unless you're a professional photographer... )
Work in a Public Forum
It's important that your work has been out in the public eye at some point, even if you've just gifted some pieces to friends. The public is an Artist's harshest critic and most adoring fan. The public is an Artist's lifeblood.
We ask for photos or videos of your art on display in a public forum or multiple images showing your work in various homes or spaces.
Great examples include:
- Art Festival Booth
- Gallery Display
- Boutique Store Display
- Your art in various homes, offices or spaces where others can enjoy it
