How do I apply for ArtWalk Carlsbad?

The ArtWalk office must receive the following three items from each applying artist or artist group:

1. A completed online application including price ranges and other shows you’ve participated in.

2. Five images of artwork and 1 image of your booth display (see images for details on the kinds of images needed).

ArtWalk will not process any applications until all three of these items are received.  WE DO NOT CHARGE A JURY FEE.

Where can I get an application?

1. Apply online

You will create an artist profile and upload five images plus a booth image, and then you will choose the event you wish to apply for.

3. Contact us via phone or email if you need assistance with the process, we are happy to walk you through it.  619.615.1090  or

The application fee for a group is $910 for a 10 X 20, $1360 for a 10 X 30, and $1810 for a 20 x 20.  The application fee for groups varies based on the number of tents needed. You will find a complete list of artist fees on the online application form. There are no jury fees.

What payment methods do you accept?

If you are selected to participate, an emailed invoice that you pay online with your credit card will be sent to you. You can also pay ArtWalk directly over the phone with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover card, personal check or cash.

May I request a specific tent location when I apply?

The ArtWalk San Diego staff will assign artist tents, but please list any specific requirements you may have (i.e., full sun, no sun, no roof, open side wall, etc.).

Will my application be processed if I don’t send artwork images?

No. ArtWalk San Diego will not process your application until we receive all of the following: application form, art images and display image. Because ArtWalk San Diego is a juried show, we must receive your images.  The selection committee occasionally requests that artists bring their work in so they can be viewed in person.

Will you notify me when my application is accepted?

Yes. We will send you an email confirmation when your application is accepted.

If my application is not accepted, will you tell me why?

We do not go into detail why work is not selected.  There are many criteria that the committee reviews including balance between the categories/mediums of artwork.
