Work Eligible

Open to all artists working in the pastel medium. NO OIL PASTELS.
  • Traditional, contemporary and abstract works of all subjects and styles, not previously shown in a CPS show, are eligible. Works must be original; i.e. not copied from works or photographs by others and not done in any classroom or workshop, nor under the supervision of an instructor.

  • Works must have been completed within the past 3 years and must be identical to accepted entry image.

  • Artwork must be predominantly (80%) soft pastel and not painted over a mechanical reproduction or collage.

  • Size limit including frame: 40" in either direction. Artwork must be securely framed under glass or Plexiglas and ready to hang with adequate screw eyes and strong wire. No sawtooth hangers. Neutral mats please.

  • You will be subject to a two-year ban from entering the exhibition if you are accepted and the painting is not delivered.

  • Work must be for sale no NFS or POR. A 30% contribution will be taken on all work sold.

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 and transferred to 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. 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.

See the section "Filename Instructions" (below) for the protocol for naming your image files.

Please consult the prospectus and the information provided on the CPS website if you need guidance with your image preparation. The CPS website contains tutorials on the "Member Resources" page under the Members menu.

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: Redford_R_TheAcademyAwards.jpg.

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

However, 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: The Academy Awards
