WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN YOUR PORTFOLIO
Your application will be accepted based on your portfolio, so be sure it clearly displays your work. If you are submitting a social media page (such as Facebook, Instagram, etc.) then those pages need to clearly show your own work. If you are a print artist, digital versions of your works are acceptable. If you sell physical items, clear images of the items are best. Your portfolio can also include images of your table/booth/space setup. Your portfolio should best represent what you intend to display or sell at your table.
Quality is the single biggest factor taken into consideration in the curation process, but Artist Alley curators will also place a high value on work that is original, highly distinctive or new.
PAYMENT: R 2660,60 EXCL. VAT PER TABLE
