Judges will be available during the festival to offer critiques to the artists who enter the competitions.

All pieces may be offered for sale as indicated when they are registered. Sales are exclusively through the artist. Artists are welcome to include their business cards and/or contact information by their piece AFTER the judging has been completed. Sold items must remain on display until the show closes.

Competitions are open to the Novice, Intermediate and Open Levels.
When entering the competition artists would enter:
    Event # - Division - Class - Level


This competition includes artists of all ability levels. More experienced artists should compete at the Intermediate or Open level. This will ensure that the Novice levels of competition are reserved for beginning artists only. 

NOVICE: This level is designed to encourage those artists who are just at the beginning of their artistic endeavours. Artists who have not won 6 first place awards or Best of Show for their work may compete at this level. 

INTERMEDIATE: For artists who have progressed beyond the Novice level. Artists who have previously won 6 first place awards or Best of Show at the Novice level may compete at this level. 

OPEN: Open is open to all artists. Artists who have previously won 6 first place awards or Best of Show honours at the Intermediate level must compete at the Open level. 

NOTE: An artist entering more than one Event (Carving - Sculpture - Drawing - Photography) may compete at whichever level is most appropriate for their ability in that Event. However al entries within a single Event must be entered at the same level.

For example: A Novice Carver can also be an Open Painter and an Intermediate Photographer. 

The artist would also indicate if the item is for sale and the sale price.

Artists are permitted to display their business cards AFTER the judging is complete.

All artists are encouraged to donate additional pieces to the live and silent auctions Saturday evening with the option of splitting the proceeds 50/50.  Artists will receive 50% of the purchase price. The other 50% will help offset the show costs. This is an "artist friendly auction" - artists can stipulate a minimum bid to ensure that their work is sold at a fair price.
