Judges will be available during the festival to offer critiques to the artists who enter the competitions.
All pieces may be offered for sale as indicated when they are registered. Sales are exclusively through the artist. Artists are welcome to include their business cards and/or contact information by their piece AFTER the judging has been completed. Sold items must remain on display until the show closes.
Competitions are open to the Novice, Intermediate and Open Levels.
When entering the competition artists would enter:

NOVICE: This level is designed to encourage those artists who are just at the beginning of their artistic endeavours. Artists who have not won 6 first place awards or Best of Show for their work may compete at this level.
INTERMEDIATE: For artists who have progressed beyond the Novice level. Artists who have previously won 6 first place awards or Best of Show at the Novice level may compete at this level.
OPEN: Open is open to all artists. Artists who have previously won 6 first place awards or Best of Show honours at the Intermediate level must compete at the Open level.
NOTE: An artist entering more than one Event (Carving - Sculpture - Drawing - Photography) may compete at whichever level is most appropriate for their ability in that Event. However al entries within a single Event must be entered at the same level.
