Has anyone applied and gotten in to this show?
I applied last year and I didn't get in. Today I was reviewing my application in Zapp to see what photos I sent them. I see there is a link like "jury details" or something like that. I clicked on it, and it says 140 artists were invited without having to apply. It has in the comments at the bottom something about they like to invite lots of artists, because some won't show up and they like to have a large wait list.
So I go look at the info for the 2014 show. The "jury details" link is empty this time. I had to look up their web page to find how many artists are at this show. According to their web site they have "over 100 artists". Yet they invite 140. I am not going to waste my money applying for this show any more.
I did not notice that "jury details" link before, but if there's anything there, it can contain some valuable information on the jury process for that show. Too bad in the case of Naperville, it's apparently available only after you apply instead of before.
