Call for Artists – 2012 Great Handmade Holiday Gift Guide

Wordle: Handmade Gift Guide

Are you an artist or craftsperson with a perfect gift for the Holidays? Want publicity to promote and sell your work?


The Arts Business Institute is calling for submissions of handmade gifts to feature in the popular Great Handmade Holiday Gift Guide, to be published on our website during Thanksgiving week.

The Gift Guide will be presented in three categories:


Gifts $100 and Up

Gifts $50 – $100

Gifts under $50


A few details …


1.  There is no cost to any artist or craftsperson to submit their work.

2.  All art or craft must be handmade in the United States or Canada, and be the original design of the creator.

3.  Submit one jpg image only of your work, emailed to: with a subject line that reads: Holiday Gift Guide Submission.

4.  Include a description of the item (size, materials, etc) and the retail price, with your name and a link to your website.

5.  Make sure you submit an image with your work displayed and photographed to its best advantage. Poor photography will result in rejection of your submission.

6.  Deadline is midnight EST on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.

7. All submissions are juried, and we will select the best representation for the Gift Guide. You will receive notification of acceptance or rejection after the deadline.
