For this Festival...
A Professional Artist is considered someone who earns 30% or more of their income from creating and teaching art. An Amateur Artist is considered someone who does not rely on their income as an artist or teacher as a means of financial support. A Youth Artist is an artist who will be under the age of 18 as of October 17, 2021.
Whether an artist is listed as Professional, Amateur, or Youth Artist does not mean their artwork is of any less quality or skill. This designation is up to the artist to disclose upon registration. Each Artist may only enter pieces under ONE of these designations.
