We are gearing up for the 2013 North Park Festival of Arts and will be giving out details about how to apply for a spot soon.

But until then, may this whet the appetites of all you budding artists: the Festival of Arts is currently hosting a "featured artist contest."

What does that mean?  Each year the Festival searches for a new featured artist to represent the spirit of the Festival through one visual piece of original art. The chosen artist will receive a booth at the 2013 Festival of Arts. Art to be used in all marketing material from local San Diego publications, printed marketing material to web, social media and possible editorial features and media appearances (If comfortable), inclusion in all press and calendar releases. Artist profile featured on the North Park Festival of Arts website with a link to artist website or social media site of choice.

Exciting?  Heck yeah!
