Artist Registration // 15th Annual UFC Chalk Art Festival

Friday, June 16 @ 2pm to Sunday June 18th at 6pm!

Artist registration is open for Utah Foster Care’s 15th Annual Chalk Art Festival at The Gateway June 16-18. This year, we have lowered registration prices to encourage more participation. There are two separate registration processes; one for adults and another for students. Please read the information below carefully and note the deadlines.

Adult Artists

This year, all adult artists (age 18+) must submit artwork upfront and go through a selection process.Registration fee per square:

  • Individual: $25

  • Team (up to 4 artists): $40

Step One: Fill out our short application form http://utahfostercare.org/caf-jury/. Your application MUST include an example of your past artwork, as well as an image of the artwork you are proposing for the festival. The application will have instructions on how to submit the artwork.

The deadline to apply is March 31st at 4:00pm.

Step Two: Once your application is reviewed, you will be notified by end of day April 8 and provided a link to complete the process and pay the registration fee. Fees are nonrefundable and a portion will go to support programs for children in foster care.

Student Artists

Participants ages 12–17 can register as an individual or team. Registration closes when all spots are filled. Teams are encouraged, especially if you are a first-year artist.

Registration fee per square:

  • Individual or team (up to 4 artists) - $20

Student artists are required to provide a copy of your proposed artwork but the process is first come, first served, as in past years. The registration is not complete until the artwork images are emailed to: camille.grimshaw@utahfostercare.org. There are a limited number of squares for the student section so please register early.

For up-to-the-minute details on this year’s big event, "like" our Chalk Art Festival fanpage on Facebook!

You can register before you even know who's on your team. Register and pay your team fee to save your place today—you will then receive an email, inviting you to submit details about team members (shirt size, etc) and to submit your artwork.

Contest & Prize Categories

Best in Theme

The theme this year is “Share Your Heart”.

Finding foster families to care for Utah children who have been abused and neglected is the whole reason Utah Foster Care holds the Chalk Art Festival. This year, we are offering prizes in the adult and youth categories for the mural that best illustrates why children of all ages in foster care (including teens) deserve loving and safe families.

Best in Show

All artists are automatically judged in this category, which considers best use of color, texture, medium, and execution.

People’s Choice

The people who view your artwork will vote by text for their favorite adult and student mural.

We are hoping to add other categories, details will be in forthcoming emails!

How to Register

Registering as a youth artist/team or as an adult artist/team is the same:

  1. Team captains do not need to have teams in place before registering.

  2. Team captains register their teams here, on Eventbrite, and pay the registration fees. You will receive an email requesting team info in April. The deadline for team details is May 1st.

  3. During registration, teams will be asked whether they’d like to participate in the Best in Theme contest (all participants are automatically in the running for Best in Show and People’s Choice).

  4. Every team must provide preview art of their murals. Look for an email with further details!

Registration closes when we reach 70 teams or April 15th—whichever comes first!

Deadline for team details is May 1st

Looking forward to seeing you at Chalk Art Festival 2017!



FAQs

Why are we being asked to register as teams?

We want to involve as many artists as possible, especially students! Some artists new to the medium underestimate the difficulty and time commitment in putting chalk to pavement.

How will you know I'm on a team?

Team captains register their teams here, on Eventbrite, and pay the registration fees. You will receive an email requesting team info in April. The deadline for team details is May 1st.

Can I have a different sized mural than the choices provided?

Having a limited number of mural sizes available makes the layout process for our volunteers go more smoothly. We ask you to keep your mural the size chosen or go smaller. We can not accomodate larger murals in most cases due to limited space.

I still have a question…

If you have questions, please read this registration page again to find your answer. If you still are unsure about the process, please e-mail camille.grimshaw@utahfostercare.org.
