The Guild of Erotic Artists is an organisation that feels that good quality
standards of membership are extremely important to maintaining the integrity and standards of its membership. Any new membership
is controlled according to the guidelines detailed below.
Entry to the Guild is open to artists, photographers,
sculptors, bodypainters, and lifecasters who have a body of artistic work that can be classed as sensual or figurative in
nature. It must also show a good level of competence, technique and originality, although enthusiasm and attitude is equally
important to our membership. The medium utilised for the artwork can take many forms, and need not necessarily be limited
to conventional artistic media, and many forms of artistic work can be considered according to artistic expression.
· An application must be received with a selection of artwork via email for the randomly selected
panel to assess the membership application. Any application submitted without examples will be rejected. In most cases, a
Website will assist the application.
Applications are scrutinised by a panel consisting of
the founder members and 5 current Guild members and nominate on each individual application. Should the
panel find that the applicant does not completely fulfil the criteria, but does show an aptitude for improvement, they may
be offered to join as an Associate Member with an annual review.
A completed application is not necessarily a guarantee
of acceptance to the Guild. If an application is not accepted at that time the reasons for non-acceptance may be given to
the applicant at the discretion of the Founding Members. A non-acceptance does not exclude a re-submission of an application
after a suitable time period, usually a minimum of 6 months.
A membership can be revoked at the discretion of the
Guild if it is felt the member has not upheld the quality or ideology of the Guild rules and guidelines.
· The types of membership and fees are listed on page 2 of this application
· The Benefits of being a Guild Member are listed on pages 3-4 of this application.
If you feel that you have what it takes to become a Guild Member, decide on what type of membership you are applying
for and complete the application form on page 5 (and the standing order mandate on page 6 if you are applying for monthly
membership). Once completed, either scan and email the application along with 6 images of your current work and a short biography.
If accepted, these images and text can be used on your page on The Guild Website.

or use another name to trade are very welcome. Many members use a pseudonym and this is acceptable. In these cases, the real
names are never divulged to anyone.
