As applications are received via Zapp™ they are immediately uploaded to the “Received” section of our Zapp™ administration site. All applications are juried remotely, meaning that our jurors can enter the Zapp™ admin site on their computers at home by using their exclusive User Names and Passwords. Any concern a juror may have about an artist’s work is shared with the other jurors, who continually discuss these issues via email until a consensus is reached.
Not all applicants are accepted, nor will we accept an applicant whose work is sub-par merely to fill a slot. To the contrary, last year (2015) only 110 artists were admitted, while we let a number of spaces go unfilled that could have easily generated booth fee income for us.
We jury on a “rolling” basis for a number of reasons, It is more convenient for our jurors, all of whom have full-time jobs. There is considerably less pressure on the jurors to quickly decide yes or no in ten seconds or so, and there is conversely much more time to consider, think about, and research any given applicant. Earlier notification allows artists to more efficiently plan their fall schedules and helps artists to avoid multiple applications – and application fees – for other shows on the same weekend.
We hope you will continue to support the Lake Mary Heathrow Festival of the Arts, and we hope you will share with us our vision of providing great art to one of the tri-counties’ most affluent neighborhoods and surrounding areas.
