Artists, both amateur and professional, are invited to submit an application for consideration.

SELECTION CRITERIA

Our selection committee is looking for unique original artwork of their own design and execution. The selection committee reviews artwork based on specific artistic criteria emphasizing high levels of creativity and technical competence. The DP ArtFest strives to ensure that visitors have access to the best fine art experience possible. If you have been a participant in the Dana Point Lantern District ART WALK in the past, this does not guarantee you a spot every time. First, all applicants must present samples of their work by photo or website. Please submit up to 3 JPEG digital images of artwork that are a strong representation of your work to dpartfest@gmail.com (*PLEASE INCLUDE WEBSITE, ANY SOCIAL MEDIA SITES AND ARTISTIC MEDIUM*). Artists will be notified of their acceptance within a few weeks after applying.

Second, upon acceptance, all accepted artists will receive a personal email from dpartfest with a link to the online application and waiver. Space is restricted and will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Artists’ space will be $25 per space. The selection committee determines artist space locations. Requests can be made but we cannot guarantee requests will be fulfilled. Reservations and assignments will be confirmed approximately two weeks prior to the event.
