Visual Artist Application Information
Applications for the 2014 Festival are now open!
Each year, artists who wish to be considered for the Columbus Arts Festival apply through ZAPPlication™, an online application tool, by submitting four digital images of their work and one image of their booth display. A jury panel, selected by the CAF Coordinating Committee, conducts a blind jury process, where jurors review the artists’ images and technical statements without any biographical information about the artists. The top scores, allowing for a balanced show across mediums, are invited to participate in the Festival.
For detailed information on the application process for Visual Artists, download a complete prospectus and information about the required Artist Statement (including sample statement). You may also find the Artist Planning Guide useful. For more information, email Festival Coordinator Inal Elbeyli by email or at 614-221-8569.
