Selection Criteria

Technical skills

Work/art is showcased as the products that would be on sale at Tracon – finished. You don’t have to have the final product yet but separate drafts or first try outs may not be enough to show what the finished products would be. You can however showcase the work at different phases.


The work/art shows the artist’s own craftsmanship and style. The products do not copy or imitate licensed products. We expect you to have new products to sell.

Tracon’s target group

Our target group consist of many series, topics and interests. The Artisan area cannot consist only of few topics, and this is why we try to select a wide range of interests. If there are two artists with same kind of products, we will compare them with the criteria above.

Theme emphasis of the year: Light & Shadow, fantasy, The Lord of the Rings, dragons. We hope that the theme of the event will also be visible in the sales area, but this is not a limiting factor in the selections.

Instructions for portfolio

  • Write shortly of who you are, what do you do, what materials you use, what products would be found on your table and how you make them. Original arts and crafts can be described in detail.
  • The Portfolio should have 8 – 20 pictures of different pieces to show. Pick pieces that you would sell during the event. There can be a few pictures about the process of making the products.
  • Please do not use social media platforms as the base of your portfolio (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.) or an art site that consists all of your production.
  • Make sure all the links work.
  • The pictures must be sized reasonably (not too small), and all the text must be readable.
  • The portfolio can have your personal touch to it.


We respect the amount of work artists put into their art and we forbid selling art made with AI on the Artisan area. The ban includes partly or completely AI generated pictures that are based on other parties’ pictures.

Showcasing Age Limited Art

Tracon is for people of all ages. Please note this in how you showcase your art. Be aware that gore and sexually suggestive art must be showcased in a way that the people visiting the vendor area are not exposed to it without their consent. A good way to limit the exposure of the art is the use folders, boxes and other covering techniques in critical places. Folders and boxes must have clear signs of content. You as the artist must be aware of who browses your art and if needed steer the visitor to other products. Selling age limited art to underaged visitors is not allowed.

All art can be showcased in the portfolio.

Changes, cancellations and attendance

After the apply period ends it is not possible to make changes for the table statistics. Cancellations must be made known as soon as possible. To not show up without any announcement is written down as information for the next Tracon. If you are late on the day of Tracon without announcement or if you do not show up, the table will be given forward to other artists.

We expect that during the Artisan area opening hours the artists are at their tables. The estimated opening hours of the area are shown at the time of applying period. Please note them when applying.


Waitlist will not be published or announced. In the application form, please make known if you are willing to fill in a table even on short notice as the event draws near.
