Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Win Free Booth Spaces at 6 Art Fairs!

Wouldn't it be nice to do a show where the booth fee was free? AFI has friends at many shows and as part of our Pledge drive a bunch of show organizers have stepped forward to give away a booth at







Howard Alan Events across the nation, Paragon Art Festivals from Maine to Texas, Rose Squared Productions in New Jersey, Mount Clemens Art Fair in Michigan (soon!), ArtWorks - 2 events in Wisconsin.

How are we going to do this? We are taking pledges, starting at $12, the participants names get added to a spreadsheet and we are going to do a random drawing starting Wednesday (5/23) at 6 pm. We won't assign prizes but we'll let people choose their own prize starting with the first name drawn.

Be listening to hear if you are the winner.

Here are the rest of the prizes (click on the images for more info):

Table Top Easel                 Watercolor Carrying Box        Ear Climberz Earrings    Press Release         Retro Headband

I was really amazed at all the people who came forward to donate a prize. Terrific response. Thanks to all of them.

Yes, Sandhi -- we have around 30 prizes and we haven't finished the drawings yet -- seems like it would be just right for you. Three of those who are offering booth spaces are in your neighborhood and not everyone will be looking for those. Some of the contributors are not artists but rather people who just like our sites and art fairs!

I just made my pledge - hope it's not too late to win a free booth, since I just applied to some of those festivals!
