All potential exhibitors are required to read the “General Rules and Regulations” in addition to the rules in the department they are entering. Check individual departments for deadlines.

Our office hours are 8:30 AM– 4:30 PM Monday – Friday. Please email any questions you may have about the Georgia Living Programs to contests@gnfa.com.

Receiving of entries will be on Saturdays only from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To allow for better management of traffic flow and avoid long wait times, we ask that if you are bringing entries for a group, or bringing 20 or more entries, please contact us at contests@gnfa.com or call 478-988-6555 to make an appointment.

Fine Art notifications have been emailed to the address used to register. You should receive a separate email for each entry from contests@gnfa.com. Accepted works emails will also include a printable entry tag to be placed on the back of your artwork and instructions. The Fine Art Accepted Works list is now available in the information section below.

Online Entries

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

  • 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.

  • 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 19, 2022. 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.

  • 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.

Registration is now open for the juried FINE ART SHOW. Other departments will be added as they are updated.
