The juror, Gregory Pai, will be completing his initial curation from your photos. Please make sure they are in focus, no glare, and large enough images. The preferred size is between 800 – 2000 pixels (no side should be smaller than 800, nor bigger than 2000 pixels). OR you can just assure you send something under 20 MB and we can help it get sized correctly. Most phones take acceptable photos with the right lighting.
MINI-TUTORIAL ON PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR ART
2D Artwork Photos:
Suggestion: Lean your artwork against a wall in bright but indirect lighting (in the shade outside, or in your house where it isn’t directly in the light of the window, but it is still very bright.) Try to watch the edges of the photo to make each edge of the art as parallel as you can to each of the edges of the phone screen or camera view finder. Take the photo. If needed, use a simple photo editor to square up the edges or correct the contrast. Try to make your photo represent the painting/drawing/photography accurately. Look at the prospectus for a link to a more detailed tutorial.
3D Artwork Photos:
Find a non-distracting background. This might be a table with a blank wall behind it, or you might drape a sheet over the back of a chair with a firm seat and place your sculpture on the seat to create an easy seamless background. Position the piece it so that the light it receives best shows its form – usually this means having a light that is directional to show lights and shadows on the piece. Take the photo. If needed, use a simple photo editor to correct any skew or correct the contrast. Try to make your photo represent the sculpture/ceramics/etc… accurately. Look at the prospectus for a link to a more detailed tutorial.
