We are now accepting artist applications for our 2016 festival.
Whether you are a professional artist or a novice, we welcome your application and thank you for continuing to help us make our festival a growing success! Those who wish to do a drawing as a team or group are also welcome to apply!
Our First Nation’s theme for 2016 is “Adventure in the Forest World; a Celebration of Nature’s Spirits”.
Please note that in order to help us balance expenses, we have instituted a $25 registration fee which extends you an artist t-shirt, a 48 pack of Koss soft pastels as well as snacks and beverages over the festival weekend. There is no fee when it comes to applying for the festival. If your application is subsequently approved by our selection committee, the fee is not due until you pick up your materials in September.
*All artwork must be appropriate for public viewing of all ages. No words or symbols intended as advertising may appear in the images unless directed. Only chalk pastels may be used. We request that you sign your artwork at the bottom of the image area. The Victoria International Chalk Art Festival Society reserves the right to take and use photographs for use in advertising and promotions. Please consider bringing some clothes that protect you from the sun. Chalking spaces provided are typically 8’ X 10’ and take up to two days to complete. The Victoria International Chalk Art Festival Society shall assume no liability for damage to property belonging to participant(s). The participant(s) further grant the Victoria International Chalk Festival Society use of the participant’s name, biographical description and likeness in any media. (Note: Children welcome at all times with free chalk provided at our new Kid Chalkers’ Zone).
