Scholarships

Vendor FAQ

Stay up to date with news and deadlines by joining our mailing list and following us on Instagram!


IS THERE AN APPLICATION FEE?
There is a $25 non-refundable application fee included in the cost of your booth. Should you not be accepted to show at WCC, your booth fee, minus the $25 application fee, will be refunded to you.


HOW SOON AFTER I APPLY WILL I KNOW IF I’VE BEEN ACCEPTED OR NOT?
You will hear the status of your application within one month of paying your booth fee.


WHEN DO APPLICATIONS CLOSE?
Applications are juried on a rolling basis and will close as soon as the roster is filled. 





WHAT DOES THE JURY LOOK FOR IN AN APPLICATION?
The jury considers many things when discussing applications: technique, skill level, use of material, branding, website design, and price point. WCC looks for ethical practices in every stage of the design and production of all work. WCC seeks work that blurs the line between fine art and craft, traditional and modern, and reflects larger trends while exploring new ideas.




CAN I SHARE A BOOTH?
Yes, you may share your booth with one other vendor. Both applicants must apply at the same time in order for either application to be considered. The two applications are juried as a whole, and the results of the jurying will be the same for both vendors. West Coast Craft does not pair vendors.





DO I NEED TO HAVE A WEBSITE?
Yes, applicants are required to have a website that accurately reflects the work they intend to show at West Coast Craft.





DO I HAVE TO LIVE ON THE WEST COAST TO APPLY?
No! West Coast Craft accepts vendors whose work exemplifies the ethos of the West Coast regardless of where they are from.


WHERE IS WCC LOS ANGELES HELD?
WCC Los Angeles will be held in the South Lot, an outdoor venue at  ROW DTLA, a thoughtfully reimagined retail and creative space in the heart of LA's historic downtown. The event will take place rain or shine.

WHAT IS THE WCC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM?
The West Coast Craft Scholarship Program awards four full booths to emerging designers and artists who have never shown at a major craft and design show, with three of the booths reserved for applicants of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds.

The requirements for applying for a WCC scholarship booth are that you have never taken part in a major craft or design show with 50 or more vendors before, along with two or three sentences describing why you and your work should be selected. You can only apply for a regular booth or a scholarship booth, but not both. If you apply for both, neither application will be considered.

Two of the four scholarship booths are reserved for applicants of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. Previously participating in major craft or design shows will not affect your Diversity Scholarship application. If you wish to apply for one of these three spots, please indicate so in the "Notes" section of your application.

Applicants are only responsible for the non-refundable $25 application fee.

All scholarship applicants will be notified of the status of their application within one month of applying.
