TIPS ON APPLYING
HOW DO I CHOOSE WHAT TO INCLUDE?
When choosing photos to include in your application, it's important that you show the jury the work that's unique to you, that showcases your ideas, your imagination and your willingness to experiment. Of course, there are many other talented makers in your product category, so show us what sets you apart!
Remember: you are always making work, and taking more photos than you need for your application gives you the luxury of choosing not only your best work, but work that tells your own story as an artist.
Give yourself time to edit your selections. Be fierce about cutting work that doesn't show you at your best. This should apply to your social media, as well.
TAKE GREAT PHOTOS!
The key to great photos of your work is lighting. A wall or table near a window on an overcast day can offer clean, even light for crisp photos with accurate color. They don't have to be fancy, but they need to show the work well. Ask a photographer at any Firsthand market for tips!
Your application is your best opportunity to show the jury who you are as an artist/maker.
