Photography, Calligraphy, Fine Art.
We know you can do it, but first you have to enter.
Where does artistic talent come from? Nobody is really sure. But we have 100% certainty that the Oregon State Fair is a great place to find an audience for your work, while you also vie for ribbon awards. Which of our three competitive arenas aligns with your talents?
The adult division (age 19 and older) contains competitions for the beginner, the novice, the intermediate and the advanced. And of course, there’s a division for students aged 18 and younger. First, second and third place ribbons will be awarded for each division.
Fine art entries are welcome from artists in divisions based on age and experience. The handbook contains specific details for entries from adult professional, adult non-professionals, teens age 13 to 17, and juniors age 12 and younger.
It begins with the click of the shutter. The image is yours, ready for whatever it is you have in mind for the next step. May we humbly suggest that the final step should be to enter your best in the Oregon State Fair photography competition?
