Prepare your image using these specifications BEFORE you start the entry process!
- All images must be high quality jpeg (jpg) image files.
- Set your camera to the highest possible quality image, use good lighting on your painting without any glass in front of it, and use a tripod for your camera.
- Once the photo is taken and on your computer, you must crop out all parts of the photo that are not the actual painting; do not show mat, frame, etc, only the painting itself.
- If not experienced with digital images, please follow one of the step-by-step tutorials offered both on the CLWAC website and here on this ShowSubmit page.
- Please save at 300 dpi resolution, with a size of 900 pixels on the longer side of the image (i.e. for a horizontal format, the width should be 900 pixels; for vertical format, the height will be 900 pixels; for a square format both dimensions are 900 pixels.). The upload system will not accept very large files, so you must reduce the native image size to these specifications.
Name your image file
Use the following protocol for giving your image file a name for submission: Start with your last name, followed by an underscore, followed by your first initial, followed by another underscore, then the title of the image without spaces, then make sure it has the extension ".jpg".
For example: Carson_R_SilentSpring.jpg
Shorten long titles in the filename, please, and remove all spaces and quotation marks.
PLEASE NOTE: The Title of your piece appears in two places in your entry.
(1) When giving a filename to the digital image file you will upload, follow the above procedure, e.g. Carson_R_SilentSpring.jpg
(2) When filling out the entry field for the Title of the piece, on the same page where you will enter the medium, size and price, type the Title just as you want it to appear in the catalog, e.g. Silent Spring.
Limit: 2D work: 1 image entered per artist
3D work: 2 images of the same piece
