Artists

Enter the Art Show!

Tiki Kon, the Pacific Northwest's tropical pop extravaganza, is accepting submissions April 15 - May 15 for participants in our group art show. We want to exhibit and sell your work at our weekend event, at a showing that has the potential for over 1,000 highly-targeted attendees and exposure to thousands more through social media and email channels.

We seek all types and formats of original art from professional and amateur artists alike...paintings, photography, illustration, sculpture and three-dimensional art. Whatever you make that fits our theme, we want to see it.

Artists may submit up to 3 pieces for consideration. Submissions are juried by a panel of Tiki Kon organizers, based on quality, creativity and appropriateness to the Tiki Kon themes. The judges' decisions are final.

SUBMIT YOUR WORK

Important Dates

April 15 - May 15 — Applications accepted

June 1 — Notification of acceptance

June 22 — Artworks must be shipped and received by this date, or may be delivered in person 

Theme

We accept any artworks that embody our overall Tiki theme, which also includes a number of tiki-adjacent subjects, but priority is given to works that convey the annual event theme.

WARNING: Due to our licensing agreement with the artist, we cannot accept works that depict any copyrighted Tiki Kon artwork, including the 2022 Caldera mug by VanTiki.

Consignment

Artworks displayed in the show are sold on a consignment basis. The consignment period is 3 weeks, starting on the first day of Tiki Kon (Friday). Artworks will be on public display at Tiki Kon on Friday and Saturday. Artists may choose to have unsold artwork shipped back or picked up in person immediately, or wait until the end of the 3 week period, during which time Tiki Kon will continue to attempt to sell them through social media. 

The consignment rate is 10%. Artists/sellers are responsible for delivery costs, and for return shipping of unsold artworks. 

See the Art Show Consignment Agreement for full details: https://www.tikikon.com/terms/art-show

Shipping

Artworks should be received by our Art Show Coordinator no later than June 22, so that she may begin assembling and preparing for the show. However, it may be possible to make alternate arrangements. If your artwork is selected for the show, we will reach out to coordinate delivery.
