Jr. Arts and Crafts Competition Guide Rules and Regulations

Jr. Arts and Crafts Department Regulations

The Oklahoma State Fair reserves the right to reject any exhibit offered if it is objectionable in any September 13-23 way, if it requires an excessive amount of space, or if the capacity of the department has been reached. Any contest may be cancelled for lack of entries. Your items will be handled with care; however, Oklahoma State Fair, Inc. is not responsible for items that get damaged while on display during the Fair. “Juniors” are welcome to enter other Creative Arts Open Divisions,unless an age specification is mentioned in the contest rules. Exhibitors may compete in an older age group, provided that they confine all their exhibits to that age group. Please read the rules carefully! Exhibitor and Exhibit Information

Who may enter? Exhibitors are limited to Oklahoma residents who have not had their 19th birthday by 09/01/12. How many exhibits can be entered? Exhibitors may make only one entry in each class unless otherwise stated. Exhibitors may enter as many classes as they wish. What is the cost to enter? Creative Arts contests are free to enter unless the entry is late. What if I am not sure which class to enter my exhibit? Should an exhibit be entered in the wrong class, the superintendent may make the proper correction for the exhibit. Can I mail in my exhibit? No. Do I need to register for live contests? Yes, but not for “On The Spot” contests. How do I get into the Fair if I am entered in a live contest? Parking passes will be mailed out to all exhibitors prior to the Fair who are entered in a live contest. The exhibitor will need to check in with the ticket taker at the designated gate to be allowed to enter State Fair Park. Only the exhibitor and one chaperone will receive free entry. Exhibits must be the work of the exhibitor except in the classes for Antiques and Collections. Antiques and Collections must be the bona fide property of exhibitor. Exhibits that have been entered at a previous Oklahoma State Fair are not eligible for re-entry, except as noted. Exhibits need to have been completed after September 1, 2011, except as noted. Each exhibit will be evaluated by professionals and the decision of the judge(s) is final. All cash prizes will be paid from the awards as marked by the judges and not from ribbons that may be attached to the exhibits. Judges are instructed not to award cash prizes or ribbons unless the exhibit is deemed worthy of the placing awarded. BEST OF SHOW payouts for the Creative Arts Department will be mailed to exhibitor after the close of the Fair. Within 90 days from the last day of the 2012 Oklahoma State Fair, it is the responsibility of the Payee to file, in writing, a claim for lost or incorrect awards. If it is ascertained that an exhibitor has made any false statement in regard to any article or exhibit, or, if any exhibitor attempts to harass or interfere with the judge or judges in the performance of their duties, the exhibitor shall be excluded from competition and forfeit all premiums. Any protest must be made in writing and accompanied by a deposit of $50, which will be forfeited if protest is not sustained. Said protest must state plainly the cause of complaint or appeal and must be filed with the Manager by Noon on Thursday, opening day of the Fair. Every effort will be made to display entries in an attractive arrangement; however, items entered for competition will be displayed only through 3rd place. Other entries will be displayed only as space is available and at the discretion of the superintendents. When

appropriate, we will display all items from one division together but this is not guaranteed.
