The Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild is now online at www.zapplication.org. All artists who wish to participate in CDCG's 44th Annual Fine Designer Crafts Show 2013 must apply through the Zapplication website.
The online application will require artists to pay only the $30 application fee when submitting the application. If you are accepted, you will receive an email with directions for paying for your booth space on-line. The deadline for applying to the 2013 CDCG Fine Designer Crafts Show is June 2, 2013.
Zapplication.org is free for artists and allows you to easily apply to hundreds of festivals across the US.
Craft media represented include: Clay, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Metal, Wood, Furniture, Work on Paper and Mixed Media. All work must be original and made by hand. Selection is based on creativity and excellence in design and technique in traditional and contemporary crafts. Designer Craftsmen are those who have perfected their craft with a mastery of technique and with originality of design. The body of work should demonstrate the artist's vision, and when viewed as a whole should be seen as more than the sum of its parts.
Not eligible: Painting, commercial photography or reproductions are not eligible. Neither are objects made from kits, imported, commercially manufactured, cast from commercial molds, embellished (painted boxes, china, furniture, ready-made clothing) nor preserved natural objects (rocks, driftwood, shells, wildlife).
