A $500 cash prize awaits the artist who wins Best in Show at the Market Street Festival Juried Arts Competition this spring, but the deadline for entering is fast approaching.
All artists 18 and older are invited to submit artwork in three categories: painting/drawing; 3D art (including fiber arts); and photography. Applications, which can be downloaded from columbus-arts.com or marketstreetfestival.com, should be postmarked by March 8. Artists may enter up to three works per medium for an entry fee of $40 by that date. Entry fee for late applications received between March 8 and March 15 is $50.
Printouts with the image and title, size, medium and completion date must accompany the application form. Artwork must be delivered to the gallery by April 27. See the application form for other entry specifications. Juried artwork will be displayed in the Columbus Arts Council's Rosenzweig Arts Center during the festival May 3-4 and throughout the month of May.
First place in each of the three categories will take home $200; second place in each category wins $100. The recipient of the People's Choice Award will receive a refund of entry fees and a People's Choice ribbon.
