  • The Standard Flower ShowCamellia Show, and Dahlia Show are processed differently than the other departments. To pre-register online, exhibitors follow the same process as for other departments, but make only one entry in the “Pre-registered (Standard Flower, Camellia or Dahlia) Entry” class for their particular show. To pre-register by mail, exhibitors may print the General Entry Form, fill in the contact information at the top, then mail to: Georgia National Fair, Georgia Living Department, 401 Larry Walker Pkwy., Perry, GA 31069. There is no need to fill in Division and Class numbers, as entries are processed from the actual exhibit tags after the show is judged.
  • Fine Art images will be submitted along with your online entry. Please make sure the images are labeled with their title. You may review previous entries and reprint confirmation receipts from the online registration site.

Registration for Fine Art will open on July 3. Registration for all other available departments will be open mid-July.
