Winter jury session for Best of Missouri Hands members, is fast approaching. The dates to remember are:
February 1, 2019 Jury opens
February 14, 2019 Jury closes
February 28 Notification of acceptance
Jurying is all done through Entrythingy, so it is a process you more than likely already know. If your pictures fit Entrythingy, they fit this jury process!
There is a helpful video on the BOMH page to help you through this process. https://bestofmissourihands.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Jury-Applicant-Slide-Show.pdf
Being a juried Best of Missouri Hands artist has many perks. Some of which are:
~Eligible to participate in a number of events planned specifically for juried members ~Individual page on the BOMH website. Only one web page per member. If a member juries into a second category, that member will have ONE page on which he/she can place information for all mediums in which juried. Pages are managed by the artists, allowing artists to easily update information and images as desired. ~Wear The Best of Missouri Hands Juried Member badge ~Use BOMH Juried Member stickers on your items to declare your status ~Display the BOMH Juried Member banner in your show booth or store. (On this, I can’t tell you what a conversation starter this is for customers coming into my booth at art shows. It gives them that little extra note of confidence, that we had to possess certain standards to be able to display that sign)
Part of MAA/BOMH's mission is education. We ask our Juried Members to participate in educational endeavors, both for the general public and for other members. Juried status is medium-specific, members may apply for Juried membership in more than one medium by jurying separately in each category. Acceptance in one category does not necessarily mean acceptance in another medium. Likewise, rejection in one category does not affect Juried membership in another category. Juried Member dues are only $60/year.
Please remember, you must be a General Member for 90 prior to being eligible to apply for juried status. That date for this session would be October 31,2018.
