Artist Selection

The Space Coast Art Festival uses both Jurors and a Judge. All artistic entrants in our annual show submit four images of their work plus one of their booth. In August of each year, the Jurors come together to view the work of all entrants to determine if the entries are original works of fine art and that they fit in with the quality of our show. The Jurors vote in private and then the scores are tabulated. Not every entrant makes the cut and those that do are truly outstanding.

To be considered as a SCAF Judge, candidates must have an MFA (Master of Fine Arts) plus an incredible amount of life experience, have received numerous awards for their work, and have experience in judging art shows. We look for Judges who are knowledgeable in many different art disciplines and can give our artists a positive experience.
