Good morning fellow artists. It is 8:11am (ET) and this is the first thing I'm doing on my computer. I posted a thread yesterday about a event I took place in on Saturday and in my comment I said…Continue

"Thanks Jan!  I think the best way to approach this is for the Event organizers to post a listing of the artists who are INVITED and that way the rest of the applicants can move on & apply for other shows. "

"Cathy this has happened to me once or twice and what I found out by talking with someone who had applied also is the show only notified the people that made the cut and they didn’t worry about the others. What can I say."

Greetings fellow Artists!Does anyone know who the artists SELECTED for this years show is? I applied via Zapplication and for weeks and weeks its just said 'Jury in Progress'. The website said that artists would be notified via email mid February. If I did not get in, I'd sure like to know so I can search for and apply for another Show. Thanks everyone!CATHYSee More

"Just because the jury is meeting this week does not mean they will contact you immediately.  You need to see when the notifications will go out.  Juries take a long time (sometimes a whole month), they see the photos more than once. …"

"Yes, Zapp is the standard. If you want to participate in the best shows it is a very helpful tool. There is a lot of info on their site that will probably answer any questions you have."

""everyone's take on Zapp"-- Zapp is fine as fine as I can see. Your app is showing as having been received, so there isn't anything else to do for now. After some time it should read something like "jury in progress."…"

I got a late start myself and am still learning.  Reading the blogs about various shows and gleaning as much info as I can from the other artists here has helped my confidence level immensely...hope it does for you as well.  Btw, congratulations on running five marathons, that's just incredible!
