LAKE CITY, S.C. (AP) - The ArtFields arts festival in the old tobacco town of Lake City has opened the submission period for its third festival with a record amount of prize money.

Next season, the event, which organizers call the largest arts competition in the Southeast, is offering $110,000 in prizes.

During the festival held each spring, hundreds of works by artists from across the Southeast are on display in stores, restaurants, businesses and galleries.

Artists from 12 states in the region are being invited to submit works to be considered for display at next spring’s festival, which runs from April 24 through May 2.

A jury of artists selects the works that go on display during Artfields. The deadline for submitting an entry is midnight, Nov. 14.
