Application Troubleshooting Tips

If you do not receive an email with instructions for uploading your application images immediately after submitting your payment, it may mean:

1. That your email provider has blocked the message or sent it to your spam/junk mail folder. Check your online banking to see if the transaction is shown. If it is, contact the Art in the Park Coordinator for further assistance.

2. Your transaction may have been declined. Please double check your credit/debit card information and your billing information for accuracy. As a reminder, only Visa, Mastercard, or Discover will be accepted by the system. Again, check your online banking. If the transaction is shown, contact the Art in the Park Coordinator for further assistance.

3. You may not have filled in every required section on the application. Required sections are marked with an asterisk if they have not been completed. Again, check your online banking. If the transaction didn’t take place, start over. If you still encounter issues, try using a different computer; we recommend that you use an updated internet browser program such as Internet Explorer or Google Chrome (some issues have been reported with Firefox). Also, you can try a different location that can access broadband Internet, e.g. a library or coffee shop.
