Please do not apply if you are a reseller of manufactured, mass produced goods (no buy/sell) or re-packaged comercially manufactured goods. 

Accepted Mediums:  Please look through all the mediums and choose where your artwork fits the best. It is very important that your artwork be placed in the correct category to ensure that the jury process is fair. Please contact the Summerfest staff if you have a question.

It is a photo of the merchandise display, approximating what the display will look like at the event.If this is your first event and you don't have a booth shot, please set up a display on your kitchen table or some other location and submit it, along with an explanation of how you will make your booth attractive. 

Remember: the quality of the images submitted does count! Please submit images that show your work clearly and to its best advantage.
