Online Entries

Be sure to read your department’s information in the competition section; print to use as a reference during registration.

  • For Youth Art entries, teachers (or parents of students entering as individuals) must obtain a password by contacting contests@gnfa.com. Deadline to obtain password is September 20, 2021. Note: It may take up to two (2) business days to process passwords, so please do not wait until deadline date to request your password. When you get to the online registration site, choose “club” from the drop down menu. Choose your club name, and enter your password to proceed. We advise using the same password for all entries. You may review previous entries and reprint confirmation receipts on the online registration site.

  • The Standard Flower Show and Camellia Show are processed differently than the other departments. To pre-register online, exhibitors follow the same process as for other departments, but make only one entry in the “Pre-registered (Standard Flower or Camellia) Entry” class for their particular show. To pre-register by mail, exhibitors may print the General Entry Form, fill in the contact information at the top, then mail to: Georgia National Fair, Georgia Living Department, 401 Larry Walker Pkwy., Perry, GA 31069. There is no need to fill in Division and Class numbers, as entries are processed from the actual exhibit tags after the show is judged.

  • Fine Art images will be submitted along with your online entry. Please make sure the images are labeled with their title. If uploading multiple images for an entry, upload the front view first. You may review previous entries and reprint confirmation receipts from the online registration site.

  • Passwords: For all departments except Youth Art, you will choose your own password when you register. Please be sure to write down your password. The Georgia Living Department does not have access to individual passwords.
