  • Due to our insurance policy, all work must be installed each morning and uninstalled 30 minutes before the gallery closes.
  • K-FEST does not charge a submission/acceptance fee or commission on any works sold. Crafters keep 100% of sales on their work. If you would like to make a donation let one of our volunteers know during the festival.

Proposed Work.

K-FEST organisers reserve the right to photograph works and to use elements of accepted entries for exhibition for publicity purposes unless the artist expressly states the contrary in writing. Copyright of all work is the property of the artist. Work is accepted for exhibition and sale based on merit.

All accepted crafters should be present in your respective space for the duration of Saturday and Sunday of the festival. Since buyers and collectors who come to our events prefer to meet the artist or at least talk to someone who knows about their work, we have found that artists who engage with our visitors are generally more likely to make sales.

Accepted crafters.

Due to the large volume of submissions, it is logistically impossible to accept all work. Any crafter who is not accepted through the submission’s application process will not be permitted to exhibit and sell at the festival this year.

K-FEST is not a funding body and is a not-for-profit organisation, which raises its income from fundraising and sponsorship, along with public sector grants, run by committed volunteers. We accept that through the submission not all applicants will be accepted, but this is the nature of the process. We always encourage and strive to work with people, but we are not perfect and are unpaid volunteers doing community service, so we ask you to respect our work and vision.

These are trying times and we would ask for everyone to be patient and respect others in the space, be it K-FEST volunteers or other crafters.

For any questions, contact crafts@kfest.ie.
