Upload one (1) photo that depicts your booth with artwork displayed. The authentic booth image (that is, an actual photo/image of your booth) should display your current artwork and must include the entire booth, not a portion. In lieu of a booth photo, Emerging Artist applicants may submit a display photo (i.e. set up a display of your artwork on a table or other nice area within your home to show how you might display your work at the event).
