Prizes range from Best in Show ($800) to Merit Awards (five at $150 each) and include Best Photo in Show ($500). Six $30 student prizes are also awarded to South Portland High School students whose art is exhibited in the Student Art Tent. Sponsors’ Choice selections are also announced at noon. The Judges’ Tent, with one submission by each artist in the show will not be open to the public so as to allow the artists to retrieve his/her artwork and allow it to be shown at their individual stands.
