The festival—which also includes performance arts, heritage arts and a children’s festival—consistently receives high marks: GGAF is currently ranked #30 nationally by Sunshine Artist magazine and included in the 2017 ELITE 100 Fine Art Events by Art Fair SourceBook.
Painting (Oil, Acrylics and Watercolor)
Cash prizes totaling $25,000 will be awarded in these categories. Awards are not given based on medium categories; 2017 winners will be exempt from jurying for the 2018 show:
Wait List Policy
As part of the jurying process, approximately 50 artists will be selected as alternates by medium category and selected to participate if there are cancellations in that category. Artists who are not on the wait list may not participate in the festival.
The Selection Process
GGAF is a juried art show. To ensure impartiality, artists' names MUST NOT be visible during the selection process. GGAF's goal is to present a well-rounded show, but there is no predetermined number or percentage of "spaces" established for any medium category. The Art Show Committee reserves the right to determine "what is art" as it applies to this event and to make final judgment on all rules. Artists will be notified of their acceptance the week beginning July 17, 2017.
Art not eligible in this show: crocheting; knitting; novelty shell items; art supplies; picture frames; mailboxes; velvet paintings; decoupage; carpentry; commercial photography; coin jewelry; fork-spoon jewelry; manufactured belts, handbags and all other leather goods; mass-produced jewelry; ram-pressed pottery; decorated eggs; T-shirts; candles; art based on embellishing commercially produced items, such as painting, stitchery or appliques on commercially produced garments and decoration on commercially produced furniture; non-original; or kit work.
Scoring and Judging
GGAF has adopted a scoring system for judging. Artwork no longer leaves the artist’s booth for judging.
Misrepresentation, Including Buy-Sell
The committee will use the ZAPP images for verification at the festival. Committee members will circulate during the festival to review artwork within booths. If work shown at the festival is inconsistent with submitted images, the artist(s) will be asked to remove the work(s) and may be banned from future festival participation and reported to the National Association for Independent Artists.
This is an outdoor festival. Depending on your location in the park, you may need to bring a mat to cover the ground. Booth fees will not be refunded due to inclement weather or other circumstances beyond GGAF's control.
The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival is not responsible for loss or damage to displays, artwork or tents. Seville Square is patrolled by the City of Pensacola police throughout the night of setup and day and night during the three days of the festival. If inclement weather strikes Sunday and your booth is not removed, please note there will be no security provided that evening or overnight.
Jury fees are nonrefundable. No refunds of paid booth fees will be given after September 15, 2017.
If an artist’s work is juried into the festival or is an award winner, it may be displayed at the Artist Party, placed on the GGAF website, and used in other promotional materials for the festival.
