Art Competition Registration Form

This competition is open to visual artists whom currently reside in Monmouth County, New Jersey, that are at least 18 years old. Valid identification that clearly indicates the artist’s full name, complete home address, and date of birth must be provided upon submission. Failure to provide valid identification indicating this information may result in disqualification.

There are two (2) categories: Professional and Non-Professional. Artists must indicate which category they are submitting for.

Professional:  Person who meets 2 or more of the following criteria:

  • Sells or has sold artwork through commercial channels (galleries, online galleries, craft shows, etc.).
  • Exhibited in a professional gallery and/or in professional shows for 2+ years*.
  • Had artwork selected in 2 or more juried art or craft shows*.
  • Has received 2 or more awards for artwork*.
  • Holds (or has held) professional membership in art guilds or associations.

* Exception: These criteria do not apply to artists who only enter their county show and never exhibit artwork in any other show—unless they have won first place in their category three or more times. In that case, the artist should identify themselves as a professional.

Non-Professional:  Person who does NOT meet the above professional criteria.
