>>International Folk Art Competition


Sons of Norway is pleased to invite all members to participate in the 2018 International Folk Art Exhibition & Competition. All members, both amateurs and professionals, are encouraged to display their skills at Sons of Norway’s largest folk art event as part of the International Convention in Bloomington, Minnesota, August 16 through 18.

Members can choose to compete, exhibit or both. Everyone who enters will receive a certificate of participation. Members who enter the competition can win ribbons for First, Second and Third places in a variety of categories, a People’s Choice award and the Best In Show award for the judges’ overall favorite item.

Preregistration materials for the Folk Art Exhibition & Competition will be available on this website in March, 2018. Participants will need to download the required materials packet containing the step-by-step procedures and rules for entering your work. Because space is limited, preregistration is the only way to guarantee that your item will be included in the event. Preregistration forms must be received at Sons of Norway Headquarters by Friday, July 27, 2018.

Please note that it is not possible to send your folk art through the mail to the convention site. If you cannot bring the item yourself, please contact your local delegate and ask them to bring your item to the convention. To find out who your local delegate is, contact your lodge or district president.

If you have any questions about the Folk Art Exhibition & Competition, please contact Sons of Norway by calling (800) 945-8851 ext. 4640 or by sending an email to [email protected].
