Key Application Dates
The jury has the difficult task in selecting the final exhibitors from hundreds of great applications. Exhibitors are selected based on various criteria:
The Artist Project Jury
All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee made up of art professionals and design experts. Every year we invite a new group of jurors so that the fair continues to remain diverse, dynamic and fresh.
The jury session Main, Untapped and Zines applications take place in October and applicants will be notified by email of their application status in November.
The jury selects exhibitors based on the following criteria:
Artist Project only accepts original fine art and does not display craft, decorative arts, furniture, or functional glass / ceramics.
Reproductions including postcards, calendars, posters, and t-shirts are not permitted in the show. Photomechanical reproductions such as offset lithographs, prints run off a commercial printing press, embellished commercial reproductions or giclee (with the exception of photography / digital media categories as well as Zine section publications) are not permitted.
Artists who reside outside of Ontario are eligible to apply for a $500 travel grant designed to offset the added costs of shipping and travelling to exhibit at the fair.
A limited number of travel grants available. Only first-time exhibitors residing outside of Ontario and/or Canada are eligible.
Artist Project is promoted as an exclusive art fair, and therefore, as outlined in the exhibitor contract, participating artists work must not appear in other shows (featuring more than 30 artists) 30 days before and 30 days after the fair, within a 50 kilometre radius of the show.
Though we try and accommodate booth size request, we cannot take location requests. Booth numbers will be assigned to artists in January.
Every year we consider the following while developing the floorplan:
Late Application Submissions
If you miss the application date, you are still welcome to apply – your application will be reviewed by the selection committee at a later date.
If the fair has already been filled at that point in time, then you may be placed on a waitlist and contacted for any booths that become available.
