The Arts Business Institute is calling for submissions of gift items from artists and craftspeople to feature in our second annual Great Handmade Mother’s Day Gift Guide to be published on May 3rd.

Take a look at our Mother’s Day Gift Guide from 2012  to see the winners and their handmade work!

A few rules and a checklist:

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: Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

4.  Include with your image submission:

  •  a description of the item (size, materials, etc)
  •  retail price of the item
  •  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 Monday, April 29, 2013.

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.

We look forward to receiving your original handmade gift submission. Good Luck!
