SEAF 2017 Artist Info

We have some amazing artists who are a part of the 2017 Seattle Erotic Art Festival! We are finalizing our list of invited artists. A few more confirmations, and we will be ready to announce all of our artists. We celebrate and encourage artists announcing their participation.

The festival has had trouble with our email service and we want to make sure that artists have all the information they need. This posts contains important information, such as deadlines and locations. There are also links to the necessary paperwork for artists with Visual, Literary, Installation, and Store art accepted into the festival

Artists! This is for you!

Copy this Artist Badge for your website or social media to proudly announce your inclusion in #SEAF2017. The URL to link the badge to is http://seattleerotic.org Alternate versions are available for download on our Facebook page.

Please print and fill out your forms completely. Either ship or hand deliver them with your art. You will want to review your artist bio in the portal and the information of your accepted art. You can email Drea to change anything about your art pieces or your bio.

If you haven’t done so already, please submit items and art to the Festival Store for review. As an accepted artist, you are automatically accepted into the store. Ed, our Store Manager, just needs to approve your quantities. Log into the Artist Portal to enter art here: https://submissions.seattleerotic.org

Ticket discount codes have been emailed out. Artists will receive one code for a Festival pass for themselves. A second code in the amount of the highest entry fee paid that can be applied toward a ticket for a guest. Ticket prices do go up the closer we get to the Festival. We encourage you to purchase your guest’s ticket early.

These discount codes can only be redeemed online. Discount codes are no longer valid after noon on Friday, April 28th. If you are going to join us at the festival, please reserve your Festival Pass before that time.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us via artisthelp@seattleerotic.org.

It’s a pleasure to have you as part of our 15th anniversary!
