Photographs If you are selected, the photographs you submit will be used in publicity for the fair. They need to be either staged in the style of your own branding, or with a clean white background. Lighting should be good, focus crisp, and resolution high. The quality of photograph is important: it not only shows your product off at it’s best, but also goes towards to overall brand of Design@HEART. It is an important part of your application.
The selection process We are looking for high quality, interesting, unique products and art. We particularly look for brands which have a coherent theme, and excellent presentation with a good internet presence, but we also consider newcomers if we feel your products would be a good fit for the fair. We have a good understanding of our customer base and select stalls that we feel will interest them. If you are not selected it may be that while we like your work, you may not be right for this particular venue and fair. Please do bear in mind that for anyone we don’t already know, we are going soley on what you submit as your application. Good quality photographs, well thought out descriptions, a good artist statement, and your websites and social media are all taken into consideration.
Closing date for applications is 21st August 2021. Should you be successful, you will be informed soon after that date and will be invoiced shortly after too. Your place will not be secured without payment. If you haven’t paid within the time stated on the invoice, your place may be offered to someone else on our waiting list.
