Pricing Structure

Good news for artists who submit early; we have a VERY special offer for you. To celebrate our 16th Anniversary, we are announcing a $16 fee for early bird submissions. This is $19 off our standard price, and is a great way to save money, particularly if you’re submitting a large number of pieces, or pieces in more than one category. Take advantage of the love December 1st – December 17th.

The standard submission fee for visual, installation, literary, and store artists is now $35 (performance artist submissions remain free).

The additional submission fee is $35 for an extra 5 submissions. Visual art is currently the only category in which one can submit extra submissions. The additional submission fee is not eligible for the Early Bird price break.
