WHAT IS A SUBMISSION FEE AND WHY DO YOU HAVE ONE?
BSDA has a non-refundable submission fee of $20 which applies to all artists who submit their work to the site. This policy is in place for two reasons: to compensate for the time it takes to review submissions and communicate decisions with artists, and to ensure artists who apply feel strongly about working with BSDA.
WHAT KINDS OF WORK CAN I SUBMIT TO BSDA?
BSDA accepts submissions of original artwork in a variety of media including painting, drawing, collage, mixed-media, textiles, ceramics and sculpture. BSDA does not accept photography, digital artwork or reproductions of original artwork. BSDA exhibits artwork priced from $300 to $1600 and asks that artists limit submissions to artwork within this range.
HOW ARE SUBMISSIONS REVIEWED?
Submissions are carefully evaluated on many factors including the overall point of view of the artist and how they represent themselves through their artwork and online presence. Artwork is assessed on too many elements to fully list but include originality, expressiveness, style, subject matter, technique, cohesiveness and overall fit for BSDA. Please note that it is at the full discretion of BSDA to decide which artists are accepted, and that BSDA is in no way obligated to provide an artist with an explanation for the decision to accept or reject a submission.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I SUBMIT MY WORK?
All submissions are reviewed for consideration for future exhibitions on Buy Some Damn Art. Artists can expect a "yes" or "no" response from BSDA within two or three weeks. It is at the discretion of BSDA to decide which artists are accepted and which are not accepted. Please note that artists whose work is not accepted do not receive a refund of the submission fee. However, artists are welcome to submit new work to BSDA after their original submission at no additional cost.
WILL I RECEIVE A REFUND IF MY WORK IS NOT ACCEPTED?
No. The submission fee is non-refundable and applies to all artists whether their work is accepted or not. As mentioned in the question above, artists are welcome to submit new work to BSDA after their original submission at no additional cost.
CAN ARTISTS APPLY FROM OUTSIDE OF THE U.S.?
Yes, BSDA accepts submissions from artists around the globe.
WHAT CUT DOES THE ARTIST TAKE HOME FROM SALES ON BSDA?
Sales are split 50 / 50 between the artist and BSDA.
DO PARTICIPATING ARTISTS SHIP THEIR ARTWORK TO BSDA?
No, artwork remains with the artist until a sale is made and is then shipped directly to the buyer.
HOW DOES SHIPPING TO THE BUYER WORK?
When a sale is made the artist is supplied with a pre-paid Fedex label and asked to carefully and promptly pack the artwork and drop it off at a Fedex location.
