Artist Application Process

Everything you need to know about applying to become an artist on KnownOrigin

What will I need to apply?


For starters you'll need a KnownOrigin profile - this profile should be fully complete with profile/cover images and links to your social media.

You'll also need a portfolio with no more than 5 works (please make sure you give permission for it to be seen by us if it is a Google Drive or Dropbox attachment).

Additionally, you'll need a brief summary about your work and why you think you'll be a good addition to the KO family.

How to apply?

The application window opens once the last batch of applications has been processed. Keep an eye on our socials to find out when the next window opens!

The application process itself is simple: go to the application page ( and from there follow the flow to upload your portfolio and add the additional required information.

Google Drive and Dropbox are the best way to add your portfolio - we will not consider WeTransfer links.

Please be aware that we are unlikely to open or download files we cannot preview, bear this in mind when presenting work for consideration.

Double check that you’ve correctly filled out all the relevant sections and have provided all the required information.

Also make sure that you have verified your social media accounts on the KnownOrigin site.

That’s it! You can sit back and relax whilst we review your application.

How long does it take to receive a response?

We endeavour to process all applications within 1 calendar month. This may not always be possible but we do our utmost to respond within this timeframe. You will be informed of the result of your application via email. Once approved and verified, successful applicants will be enabled as KnownOrigin creators in weekly batches.

Can I re-apply?

Yes, absolutely! We actively encourage creators to reapply if initially unsuccessful. Just make sure you’ve reviewed your profile and your portfolio to ensure it’s the best it can be.
