Eligible Work

The show is open to active members of the First Coast Pastel Society. Members may submit up to three paintings for the juried FCPS Members' Show. Any outstanding fines for materials checked out and books overdue more than six months must be returned or replaced in order to be eligible to participate in this show.

Eligible Work: Only original dry pastels completed in the last two years are eligible. Work may not have been shown in previous FCPS Juried Member Shows. Work must be original and not copied from other artists or published materials. Work done under supervision (such as in a workshop) is not eligible. Mixed media must be 80% dry pastel. Paintings must be framed, under glass or Plexiglas, ready for hanging (with picture wire, no saw tooth hangers) and can be no larger than 40" including frame, in either direction. If matted, the mat should be white or a light neutral color (colored liners are acceptable). Nudes may be submitted; however, the gallery may reject any work it deems inappropriate.

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
