Artist Registration // 17th Annual UFC Chalk Art Festival

Friday, June 14 @ 11 am to Saturday June 15th at 6pm!

Artist registration is open for Utah Foster Care’s 17th Annual Chalk Art Festival at The Gateway June 14-15. 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:

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 https://utahfostercare.org/chalkartfestival/artists/adult_registration/ . 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 $10
  • 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 prize categories and 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.

How to Register

Students may register at any time before May 10th as long as space is available. Adults will officially register after they have been notified that they have been selected to participate.

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

  1. 1. Team captains do not need to have teams in place before registering.
  2. 2. Team captains register their teams here, on Eventbrite, and pay the registration fees. You will receive an email requesting team information and a deadline.
  3. 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. 4. Every team must provide preview art of their murals. Look for an email with further details!

Registration closes when we reach capacity.

Deadline for team details is May 10th.

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 information.

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 cannot accommodate 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.
