Artist Application

The regular deadline, June 28, for the Autry's American Indian Arts Marketplace has passed. Artist acceptance notifications will be sent August 5, 2019.

If you are a late artist who wishes to apply, you can apply electronically or by mail. The late application fee is $75 and is nonrefundable. Please note late applications will be reviewed on a space available basis.  

To apply and pay by mail download the application here, or a youth application here, and mail it to the address on the application along with a check or money order for the  late application fee and current images of your work. Applications will not be processed without the late application fee. Images may be submitted as printed photographs, on a photo CD or on a flash drive. Photographs, CDs and flash drives will not be returned.

Once your  late application fee has been processed you will receive an email containing a link to a fillable .pdf application form, and a second link to upload your application and digital images to a private Dropbox location. These links will remain active through Friday, July 19. You can upload additional image files until that date.
