Call for Submissions: October 30 - December 13, 2013

ArtFields is a uniquely Epic Southern Artfest Competition and Celebration to be held in the historic community of Lake City, South Carolina. Emerging and professional artists have until Friday, December 13, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EST to submit ONE piece of 2-D (no larger than 72″ x 72″) or 3-D artwork. Selected artists will be invited to exhibit their work in one of the historic downtown Lake City venues, from a former mercantile to a barbershop for ten days.

Art competition winners will be determined by popular choice and juried panel votes. Voters will have to be present in Lake City, SC to cast their votes during ArtFields. Cash prizes totaling $100,000 will be awarded to winning artists, including the $50,000 Top Prize, the $25,000 Juried Panel prize, the $12,500 People’s Choice 2-D, and the $12,500 People’s Choice 3-D.

Rules & Eligibility

Eligible artists must be 18 years of age on or before the submission deadline of Friday, December 13, 2013.

Artists must reside in one of the 12 Southeastern states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia) for 6 consecutive months prior to the submission date.

Each entry must be original to the artist in concept, design, and execution, does not infringe upon any third party’s proprietary rights, and must not violate any state, federal, or international intellectual property laws. An entry that has been copied from an existing photo (not the artist’s own), painting, graphic, advertisement, or any other work produced by another person is a violation of these Rules and will not be accepted and, further, may be disqualified at any time before, during, or after the competition, in LCPC’s absolute and exclusive discretion. Work entered must be in the original medium (that is, not a scanned reproduction or digitization of a painting, drawing, or other work).

FAQs

Does the entry have to be for sale?
No, but we do need to know the value of your piece for our records. We will list the work as NFS (not for sale) on your entry’s label and in the competition artwork gallery on ArtFieldsSC.org. *In the event your entry is the Top Prize or the Juried Panel Prize, the artist agrees that the winning work and reproduction rights will be the sole property of Lake City Partnership Council and ArtFields.

Is the artist responsible for insuring the entry?
Yes. Neither Lake City Partnership Council (the sponsor of ArtFields) nor the venue will assume responsibility for insuring the entry. The artist is responsible for insuring the entry for transporting to and from the venue and for the duration the entry is in the venue location.

Do I have to be present in Lake City, SC during ArtFields?
No. Except for installation artists, the Artist is not required to travel to Lake City, SC; the Arts and Cultural Relations Director plus a team of art-handling professionals will be installing the Entry at each venue.

Does the artist choose the venue?
No, the artist, once eligible, will be invited by an official ArtFields venue to exhibit his/her work.
