Artist Booths




Artist booths will return to 4x5 Photo Fest showcasing the talent of regional photographers. The artist booths are a great opportunity for emerging photographers to sell smaller sized prints, showcase their portfolio, and network with other professional photographers. 

NO FEE TO APPLY! Accepted photographers will pay a $100 fee to cover the cost of booth rental and committee selection. Exhibitor fees include a 6ft table, (2) chairs, artist badge, and access to wifi. Participants will be mentioned in our e-blasts to our mailing list, receive special shout-outs in upcoming announcements, and a description on our events page!  After that, 100% of your booth sales go straight to your pockets!


Applications are accepted online only.


What We're Looking For:

We are currently accepting applications for photographers to sell original photograph prints, artist books, showcase new photography equipment, supplies, accessories, framing and matting services, promote printing services, set-up portrait sessions and more! We encourage artists to sell their work in addition to showcasing what they do, and we love original approaches and concepts that introduce an element of surprise! We're open to any ideas you might have! 


Selection Criteria:

All applications will be reviewed by our selection committee. There are a limited number of booth spaces available to exhibitors. In order to make sure we offer our attendees the best experience possible, we are looking to choose a diverse range of photographers, and offerings, and submissions are selective. We will contact all applicants with a decision by mid-October.

*If you are selected for a booth, you will be notified no later than October 18, 2017. Selected artists will also be sent a PayPal invoice for $100. Only upon payment received is your space secured and we will list you on our events page. Payment must be received by October 31, 2017. 


Shared Vendor Space:

If you wish to share a booth with another photographer please submit your application together as one.
