EMERGING ARTISTS APPLICATION AND JURY PROCESS 
ACRE™ is a high-quality juried wholesale show. All work must be original designs, produced in the United States or Canada. Members of the jury score on Craftsmanship, Marketability, Originality, and Photography.

There is limited space available in our Emerging Artist area, so Emerging Artist applications will be collected and juried with a few rounds of approval. Once you have submitted your application ACRE will review it for eligibility. If your application is deemed eligible, you will be accepted into the next round of the jury process.

Exhibitors will be notified of their acceptance or denial via email.  Once the jury process is complete, artists receive a copy of their personal scores with anonymous feedback and suggestions from the jurors. ACRE™’s jury panel consists of artist peers, IndieMe™ staff and prominent retailers.
