Central Mass Pastel Society
1st Annual Members Show

April 30, 2019 - midnight EDT - deadline for online submission of entries

May 15, 2019 - Notice of awards emailed

May 15, 2019 - Show opens on CMPS website

June 15, 2019 - Show closes

Eligible Work

This is a non-juried show.

Submission of entries is open to all pastelists who are CMPS Members in good standing. Paintings must be entirely the work of the submitting artist. Paintings done under supervision, such as a workshop or class, are eligible for this Member show.

    Other guidelines include that the painting:
  • is at least 80% soft pastels; no oil pastels
  • was created within the last two years.
  • may be listed as NFS

Image Specifications

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, 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. 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.

Please consult the prospectus and the information provided on the entry page in the Image Preparation Tutorials if you need guidance with your image preparation.

Prepare your images using these specifications BEFORE you start the entry process!

Filename Instructions

Adjust your filenames BEFORE you begin the entry process!

Image File Naming Protocol

Use your name and the title of your painting without any spaces, special characters or punctuation marks. Use this protocol: Lastname_FirstInitial_TitleOfPainting.jpg. Be sure the file name ends with .jpg

For example: Artist = Abraham Lincoln, Title "The White House's Paint" = Lincoln_A_TheWhiteHousesPaint.jpg

Shorten long titles in the filename, please, and remove all spaces, special characters and quotation marks.

Please Note: When completing the Entry Form, type in the actual painting title as you want it to appear in the show catalog.

For example: The White House's Paint
