The competition is open to anyone residing in McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, Polk, and Bradley counties, regardless of artistic experience or expertise, and all are encouraged to participate.
There will be a first, second, and third place cash prize awarded in each division as well as a Best in Show award and a People’s Choice Award. A new award this year is sponsored by the Community Artists League. Called the “Looking to the Future” award, it will go to a promising high school student who shows a high quality of work and creativity in their approach to the subject.
