What is a Juried Show? - The annotation ‘juried’ means the exhibitor must submit slides or photographs which are reviewed by a jury (a knowledgeable committee) and the work will be accepted into the show, based on technical skill, creativity, the medium, and/or other requirements. Some juries are composed of just one or two people screening for quality. Craft or fine art shows are usually juried.
