All qualifying work must be well conceived and expertly executed in Maine by members of the Maine Crafts Association. It also must be made by hand or with the use of appropriate equipment and tools. Applicants must have a current 2018 Professional or Emerging Professional membership to qualify.

Members must submit work that can be reproduced to at least a dozen items by the delivery date, (however, one-of-a-kind work would also be considered). Submissions must include an image of at least one completed item intended to be shown in the exhibit.

Categories not accepted
Dried flower arrangements; pressed flowers; seed and pod decorations; cut bottles and embellished objects such as non-artisan made painted boxes, glasses, stones, shells, and buttons. Objects made from commercial kits or commercially available plans are also not acceptable.
