The guest juror will select the winners.

The entry fee is $5 per painting for members, $10 for non-members. Artists may enter up to 5 pieces. Payments will be accepted online, at BDAC, or by calling BDAC at 801.295.3618.


Bring completed pieces to BDAC between Sept 13 and Sept 17. Completed works must be delivered to BDAC no later than Sept 17.


Art must be ready to install, with all required hanging hardware. Excessively fragile or poorly-framed work (ex: unframed watercolor on paper with no instructions) may be rejected at the discretion of BDAC staff. Due to glare and handling concerns, BDAC does not recommend framing with glass, especially for fresh oil paintings.


Competition is open to any media, so long as it meets the requirements.
