Check out ZAPP® for calls for artists

ZAPP® (Zaplication.org) is a web utility used by an increasing number of arts organizations to manage entries for shows or booking festival booths for artists. ZAPP describes itself as “a one-stop universal online application system that allows artists to submit and manage applications for participating art shows, festivals, and fairs.” Using ZAPP® is free to artists, but the organizations pay a fee.

For more about the advantages and the process for organizations, see http://www.zapplication.org/license.phtml, For information for artists on how to apply, see http://www.zapplication.org/apply.phtml.

For the artist, ZAPP® is a treasure trove of opportunities. Because the listings are so extensive, finding information can be a challenge. There are several ways to search: 

  1. The Event Calendar, which shows calls on a calendar format by application deadline. Once you find an interesting possibility, you then go to the Participating Shows for more information.
  2. The Participating Shows listing, which displays brief information with dates and links (see example below): 

Art in the Square 2013 | Southlake
Southlake Town Square
Texas
Central Region
Application Deadline: 11/7/12
Show Dates: 4/26/13 – 4/28/13

View More Info– Apply to Show

Finding a particular show or shows in an area can be difficult, since there is no simple search feature. The Participating Shows can be sorted alphabetically by name, chronologically by application deadline or show start date, or geographically by region. The Texas shows describe themselves variously as “Central Region” or “South West Region” or even “South East Region”. Region is not selectable, but is an alphabetical sort, so it is somewhat crude.

To do a simple search, select one of the ways to sort, then use the Search feature of the browser you are using. The command is usually Ctrl-F (for find) on most browsers. Type in what you’re looking for: state name, city name, region, or event name.

Here is a listing of Texas shows on ZAPP® found by this search method:
