Design In Wood is a juried show. You must enter digital images of your entry: front, side and isometric views. From these photos judges will determine which works will be accepted into the show.
Yes. If you would like to sell your artwork, indicate the price during the entry registration process. If you do not want to sell, mark NFS (Not For Sale) in the price field during registration, or leave the price field blank.

Listing a sale price authorizes the Fair to supply prospective buyers’ contact information to you. The sales transaction is strictly between the artist and prospective buyers; the Fair has absolutely no involvement beyond giving you this information. Additional details about selling your work is in the Design in Wood Entry Information.
