Art Submission

We are already gearing up for our 37th Annual California Strawberry Festival celebration May 16 & 17, 2020, and we’d love for you to be a part of the tradition. Get those creative “strawberry” juices flowing and submit your strawberry artwork to the annual California Strawberry Festival Artwork Contest for a chance to win $2,000 and VIP passes.

Please read the official rules before submitting your entry.

Entry Deadline:
Friday, January 7, 2020. Entries must be submitted before 11:59 PM January 7, 2020.

Design Guidelines
Strawberry design must be 16 ½ inches wide by 17 inches high.

Upload Guidelines
First round judging will be judged in the digital format you upload. If your artwork was not created digitally, please make sure that the photo or scan that you upload represents your original artwork in the best possible light, in high resolution. We will accept a JPG or PDF of your art for uploading, up to 10MB in size. If you are notified that you are selected as a finalist, you must physically drop your artwork, if its native medium is not digital, to the Festival Office in Oxnard during the last week of January for final judging!

For review of previous years’ winning designs, visit the Festival’s gallery of posters.
