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

Ah, brainstorming! A co-worker had a great idea about our empty galleries this month: Any Texas Artists Coalition member may enter up to 2 works for a $20 fee. All work will be hung. No jury, no worries. We have both the Front and the Back Galleries, so plenty of room for everyone, so there are no size limitations. The All-In TAC Show will open with a reception on November 9, 6 – 9PM. You must be a current, paid-up member of the TAC to participate, but you can renew or join on the spot. Bring your work in to the Fort Worth Community Arts Center on November 1st or 2nd between 8:30AM and 7:30PM. Let’s see some new stuff; let’s see some old stuff you’ve never put out there. Questions? Email Elaine Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 817.298.3021 or Rachel Ireland at Rachel@artscouncilfw.org or 817.298.3024. http://www.fwcac.com/?exhibitions/tac
