The State Foundation on Culture and the Arts urges visual artists to register with CaFÉ (callforentry.org), a website developed by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) to facilitate calls for artists and artwork. The CaFÉ registration is free, secure, and offers access to visual arts opportunities nationwide. There is no charge to artists registering on CaFÉ. If you are a first time user of CaFÉ, please allow adequate time to learn and use this system. We believe that there are many advantages to this digital submission system in terms of artists' accessibility, cost and environmental issues.Artists will have access to other competition calls for entry, which are being posted on CaFÉ. We encourage you to visitwww.callforentry.orgto register and respond to current and/or upcoming SFCA calls.
