Artist Submission Process
To ensure the highest quality of work, all work submitted to the store is reviewed by the ShopColumbia Review Board Committee.
1. Select your best work. What work do you want to represent you as an artist? Is the work reflective of your current skill? Is the work that you are submitting a cohesive body of work?
2. Go to shopcolumbia.submittable.com to submit your work online for review by Shop staff. Please review each category thoroughly to make sure you are submitting your work to the correct Shop opportunity.
3. ShopColumbia staff will contact you regarding the status of your online submission.
