When submitting credit card payment please click pay only one time and wait 24 hours. Then check “manage applications” to confirm payment has posted.
Applicants must use the electronic application system to submit their information and five (5) digital images. A nonrefundable fee of $50 for applying electronically is payable online by American Express, Discover, MasterCard or VISA from December 1, 2016 through March 10, 2017. The fee will increase to $75 for applications submitted March 11 through March 24, 2017.
To encourage the participation of craftsmen who are beginning their careers, an Emerging Artist category is available. This option is open only to those who have been practicing their craft for less than six years and who have never exhibited at ACE. If you choose to apply as an emerging artist, you must do so exclusively. The application procedure and fees are the same as for other applicants. However, those who check the emerging artist category will be juried separately from the other applicants. Those who are accepted will share a booth space with other emerging artists, thereby reducing their booth expenses.
