Eligible Work

Open to all Connecticut Pastel Society members in good standing with 2018 dues paid. Please send your best work. All works of any subject and style not previously shown in a CPS show are eligible. Work must be original, not copied from works or photography by others and not done in any classroom or workshop, nor under supervision of an instructor. Work must be predominately at least 80% pastel and not painted over a mechanical reproduction or collage. Works must have been completed within the past 3 years.

There is no size limitation.

Work may be designated NFS or POR.

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. 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 CPS website, Members/Member Resources, for image preparation tutorials.

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

Filename Instructions

Name your image files

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.

On the entry form in the box for Title do enter the actual title of the piece as you would want it to appear in the show catalogue.

For example: Silent Spring
