Looking for artists

We are always on the look out for artists, emerging or established, to participate in our events!

We are looking for artists who:

  • Show artistic merit
  • Are willing to be actively involved in the event
  • Are able to meet deadlines
  • Are wiling to accept lay-by sales
  • Have social media etiquette
  • Are able to submit high quality images
  • Are fun!

If you think you meet our criteria, then watch for our Call for Artists in late February which we make through our newsletter and social media, so please sign up and keep in touch.

About being an AOHF artist

Invigilation: We ask all our local artists to invigilate during the show which is a very fun experience. You get the chance to meet your audience, hear their feedback and help visitors develop a deeper understanding of your work.

Commission: We take a 30% commission on the price of all works sold. If artists are unable to invigilate (ie. they live interstate) we take 40% commission. AOHF is GST registered.

Marketing: Marketing is the core of AOHF’s business. While we promote the event as a whole, some artists whose images are chosen by editors may gain significant media coverage. We ask our artists to provide us with high quality images for PR purposes.

Technical Skills: We ask our artists to complete pre-populated spreadsheets, to upload their work onto our online catalogue and submit images at certain sizes and resolution. Artists should have the skills to do this, or have someone on hand who can do it on their behalf.
