2024 Competition & Festival Voting Guide

Visitors to ArtFields 2024 get to put on their art critic hat and help determine two winners of $12,500 each! During the event, attendees can vote on their favorite artworks to win the coveted People’s Choice Awards. One 2D and one 3D artwork will be awarded on finale night on May 4th.



Online: Visit the homepage of the ArtFields website and click on the orange button in the center. Enter your information and click ‘submit.’ Your email is required to create a unique voting account and will not be used for marketing purposes unless you check the box. Similarly, your mobile number is only used to verify the text-to-vote option and you will not receive messages outside of those associated with the voting process. We strongly recommend adding your mobile number so you can conveniently vote from your mobile device!

This pop up will appear for you to enter information and opt in. 

In-Person: Head to the Welcome Center at 132 N Acline Street in Lake City during the event to have a volunteer register you to vote.

After you have registered, you will receive an email with confirmation and a personal voter ID.



All voters must be activated to verify that they were at the event in Lake City. The People’s Choice Awards are based on actual attendees, so it’s very important to activate your vote when you arrive in town. Activation stations are located at the Welcome Center at 132 N Acline Street, Jones-Carter Gallery at 105 Henry Street, TRAX Visual Art Center at 122 Sauls Street, and the ROB at 245 S Church Street.


You can vote during the event after activation on any desktop computer (in Lake City or elsewhere). Simply log in at the upper right hand corner of the ArtFields website with the personal voter ID.

The easiest way to vote is via our text-to-vote system. Simply text the 6-digit voting code associated with each artwork to 843-647-6780. This code is on every artwork label, in the Field Guide, and online so you can easily find it.

You can vote for multiple artworks, but each artwork only one time.


Need help? Email [email protected] or visit our Welcome Center during the event at 132 N Acline Street. Happy voting!
