Bloorcourt Applications Close Tomorrow!

Bloorcourt Fest Poster 2012

Greetings, Citizens!

Just popping into the blog to remind you all the applications for the Bloorcourt Arts & Crafts Fair close tomorrow night at midnight EST.

The response to our call, thus far, has been nothing short of astounding. The jury is already going to have a tough job ahead of them. That said, I still want to get the word out to all interested parties because someone always misses our calls and feels sad. That is not okay! We must spread the word to all who need to know in these final days.

I would also like to dissuade all of you who are interested in applying from waiting until the last minute. It always makes for stressful moments, especially for those who have technical difficulties (see below). Do it now, cross it off your list, feel the feeling of accomplishment wash over you, kick your shoes off, then go drink on a patio. It will be great!

Big Note: Some people have reported difficulty with the web form not going through. So far, it has been as issue of images size 100% of the time. It seems that, for some, even if your images are below our 2mb limit they can time out the application on slower internet connections. All we need for jurying are images 1000 pixels wide or tall at 72dpi. If you resize to those dimensions, your images should easily be small enough to send and big enough to view for us. Huzzah!

Applications are here! The wonderful vendor FAQ is here!

Yours very truly,
