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 72 dpi resolution, with a size of 1200 to 1500 pixels on the longer side of the image. The upload system will not accept very large files, so you must reduce the native image size to these specifications.

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