Dear Gourd Crafters/Artists,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for participating in the 2017 SMGS Gourd Art Festival competition. We so appreciate each and every entry to our show. As fellow gourd artists, we understand the hours of work and the time spent developing new ideas that go into each and every piece. It is so exciting each year to look at the hundreds of entries and enjoy the variety of ideas and creative abilities we see.
As judges we take our responsibility seriously and are committed to doing the best job possible. In judging, we follow:
Late registration (received after March 20, 2017) and unregistered “walk-in” entries on the day of the show will incur a late fee of $5.00 for each item entered into the show. If an exhibitor that pre-registered their entries brings to the show additional entries, each non-pre-registered entry will incur a late fee of $5.00.
We want every participant to have the best experience possible. In order for that to happen you should pay close attention to the following suggestions to help make that happen.
If you have any questions, contact the Competition Chair: Nancy Amburgey - firstname.lastname@example.org, please include SMGS Competition in the Subject Line.
