The Great Wall of Honesdale


The Great Wall of Honesdale is an annual event. Each year artists are provided with a specific theme for that particular year. Art is submitted from January to March. The installation runs from mid-June of the submission year to mid-June of the following year.

All art submissions are made through CaFÉ, an online portal. Portal registration is free for artists. There is a modest fee to submit art for The Wall. Information for 2024 submissions is below. Please see additional details on the CaFÉ Call For Art.


  1. SUBMISSION: All GWH entries MUST be submitted through the CaFÉ portal: Apply Here Entrants must create an account on CaFÉ at: Register Here
  2. ART: Entrants may submit up to three (3) jpeg images for consideration through CaFE. Images must be at least 1,200 pixels on the longest side. Each file can be up to 5MB. Do not submit more than 3 images. NOTE: Selected entrants will be required to submit a HIGH resolution TIFF image for printing (minimum 300 dpi and 5000 pixels on longest side), and must supply a digital file within two (2) weeks from notification. This will be done separately from the CaFÉ application (e.g. via Dropbox, Google Drive, thumb drive). Additional information will be provided.
  3. CRITERIA: Wall selections will be made based on artistic quality, graphic strength, and interpretation of the theme. GWH is most often viewed from a distance, so strong graphic interest is important to be effective. All submissions must be HORIZONTAL (wider than high) and able to accommodate minimal cropping, if needed during the reproduction process.
  4. ENTRY FEE(S)/CHARGES: The cost is $30 for up to 3 entries. Selected artists will NOT pay for art reproduction and display on GWH, or for online promotion of work. Upon completion of the exhibit, artists may purchase their own GWH panel for $100 (local pickup or pay applicable shipping). Unpurchased panels become the sole property of WCAA.
  5. STUDENT ENTRIES: In an effort to promote the visual arts and encourage future artists, one (1) of the twelve (12) panels on exhibit annually is reserved for a student entrant. Student entrants will be asked for additional information as a part of the CaFÉ submission process to identify educational level and institution. Student credentials may be validated as a part of the selection process.
  6. DEADLINE: deadline for entry is midnight (MT) on Sunday, March 31, 2024. Entrants selected will be notified by end of day (EST) on Monday, April 29, 2024.
  7. ELIGIBILITY: Entrants previously selected for GWH in 2021, 2022, or 2023 are not eligible for GWH 2024. Entrants who do not adhere to the above rules will not be considered and forfeit any associated entry fees.
