ArtFields 2020 Call for Submissions

ArtFields is now officially accepting applications for their 2020 competition. Now in its eighth year, the competition will offer selected artists exposure to the thousands of art lovers, collectors, and curators who come to see Lake City, SC transform into a town-wide gallery each spring and the opportunity to compete for over $145,000 in prizes.

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.

    I clicked on “here” and put in my email but didn’t know my password and you didn’t send me a reset.
    I was in your very first Artfields Exhibit so I should be in your files. Don’t know what else to do so I guess I won’t apply.

      Becky – you’ll want to contact ArtFields directly. They likely won’t read the comments on my website
