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 applying.
I’VE PARTICIPATED IN WCC IN THE PAST. DO I NEED TO REAPPLY?
All vendors must reapply. In order to keep WCC diverse and a source of new and exciting designers and craftspeople, it seeks to maintain a balance between veteran vendors and new vendors looking to join WCC.
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.
WHEN DO APPLICATIONS CLOSE?
Applications close on Friday, March 4, 2022. 
 
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 seeks work that blurs the line between fine art and craft, traditional and modern design, and reflects larger trends while exploring new ideas.

WCC looks for ethical practices in every stage of the design and production of all work, and is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive roster of vendors.
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.
WHAT IS THE WCC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM?
The WCC Scholarship Program awards four half booths to emerging designers and artists who have never shown at a major craft and design show, with two 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 two spots, please indicate so in the "Notes" section of your application.

Applicants are only responsible for the non-refundable $25 application fee, and should you be accepted, for any additional rental charges (e.g., tables, chairs, etc.).

Scholarship applications are closed for 2021.
