There is no entry fee and ALL artists are welcome to submit as many designs as they see fit.
We are not in the business of wasting anyone’s time. We know your time and creative energy, as an artist, is valuable. As such we want to reward your efforts behind this offering.

Selection Process:
Upon receiving all material from artists, each submission will be evaluated by a selection committee at Montana Silversmiths. Montana Silversmiths will select the top 24 designs for final review.
The Sales & Marketing Department at Montana Silversmiths will select the final 12 designs.
Each of the selected 12 finalists will be paid $100 per design and Montana Silversmiths will create a buckle. As part of the compensation package all top final designs will be produced. Montana Silversmiths will pay for all CAD CAM and production charges; and will provide 50 buckles to each artist selected as a finalist. Each buckle will be valued at MSRP $35-$49.
Additionally, MegaFauna will be provided with a selection of the finalists buckles to promote, sell and market in collaboration of producing this campaign to support local Colorado creativity.
In the event any of these items go to print (production and or catalog) MS will offer a royalty to the artist or artists involved. This will be negotiated once items are selected however, typically between 2-4% of sales for a season or for as long as the item is in the catalog.

*IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING YOUR CREATIVE SUBMISSIONS: ALL the other submitted art, not selected, will be send back to the artist or in the case of digital media, deleted and not used for any further development.
These finer points of course will be spelled out with a document provided to each submitting artist.
(submit initial application to receive contest details and submission procedure and contact information for MegaFauna as the point on the project)

Saturday Social is an opportunity for new and emerging businesses to set up a one day pop-up store at MegaFauna to tout their brand and sell merchandise.

This opportunity allows new and existing businesses a chance to focus on a one day promotion at an well known and established store front. Each event is tailored to the structure and concepts as unique as the products being offered.

“Businesses who set up booths at large scale events are oftentimes lost in the shuffle, so we wanted to provide a more focused campaign for these groups to highlight their full product offerings.” John McCaskill, owner MegaFauna

If you or someone you know might find interested or benefit from hosting or attending one of these progressive promotions please forward along this information.
