ELIGIBILITY AND ENTRY FEES
Hawaiʻi Craftsmen members must pay $25 for the first two entries and $10 for each additional entry. Non-members must pay $75 for the first two entries, $10 for each additional entry. Membership must be active through November 10, 2017 to qualify for the discounted member entry fee. Hawaiʻi Craftsmen artists can renew their membership when registering their entries on CaFE.

When registering for the annual exhibition on CaFE, images of up to a maximum of 6 completed entries and a 1-page artist statement or bio, must be uploaded in the CaFE designated formats. Please note that participants registering only 1 entry must upload 2 images (e.g. 1 full view, 1 detail or 2 different views of the same art work). If entering more than 2 artworks, be aware that after uploading the minimum of 2 entry images, each additional uploaded image will be charged as an entry; therefore, upload only one image per entry after the minimum requirement of 2 image/entry uploads has been met to avoid being overcharged for duplicates of the same entry.
Intake and jurying of pre-registered entries will occur on Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, and Oahu islands. Entries from Molokai and Lanai will be juried online and artists notified of accepted entries via email on Oct. 16.

Participants WITHOUT computer knowledge or in need of extra registration assistance are requested to contact their island chairs well in advance of the Oct. 1 (7 pm HST) registration deadline to receive individualized help.
Email addresses used during CaFE registration should be accurate to ensure timely communications about your participation in the exhibition. Please make sure that spelling of all text is correct, as this information will be used for the exhibition labels, a catalog of accepted works, and in a gallery notebook containing artist statements.

Containers must be movable by two people and fit through standard doorways. Artists must make additional arrangements for delivery and pick-up of entries needing special handling. Late arrivals, unwieldy art works, and entries that pose a shipping or handling problem may not be accepted.
