Artist application

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 theme for 2017 is “Celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday”.

In our first year at Uptown, we have decided to wave the $25 registration fee for all submissions. All artists will still receive the free T-shirt, 48 pack of Koss Artists’ Soft pastels as well as snacks and beverages throughout the festival weekend. There is no fee for applying for the festival whether your submission is selected or not.











*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 Uptown Chalk Art Festival organizers reserve 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 Uptown Chalk Art Festival shall assume no liability for damage to property belonging to participant(s). The participant(s) further grant the Uptown Chalk Festival use of the participant’s name, biographical description and likeness in any media.
