ArtFields started in 2013 with a goal to honor Southeastern artists with nearly two weeks worth of celebration and competition in the heart of Lake City - a small South Carolina town. To date, ArtFields has awarded nearly $800,000 in prize money, helped launch the careers of countless artists, and ultimately led to Lake City’s transformation into a burgeoning arts mecca.
Adult artists of all media, who live in the competition's 12 participating Southern states are welcome to apply. Submissions will be accepted through November 1, 2019, accepted artists will be notified in December, and winners will be announced at the close of ArtFields, set for April 24 - May 2, 2020. More information on submission guidelines can be found here.
