Paint Creek Center for the Arts' strict jurying process ensures the caliber and integrity of the Festival's national assembly of artists. Jurying is done separately for each category by professional artists. Four images are required on CD-ROM; one of the artist’s fully stocked booth and three of the artist’s individual examples of work. Scores in each category are based upon originality, technique, design, and overall impact. Artists will be notified of their acceptance in mid-March.
The Art & Apples Festival features overnight security, artist care, drive-in set-up and cash awards among other on-site amenities provided throughout the Festival weekend.
