1. Rules of Entry

Read the Terms and Conditions carefully and ensure you understand them fully. You may wish to download and/or print this document.

Full Rules of Entry >>>   

2. Images of Your Work

Have the image files of your artwork ready to be uploaded to the entry form.

JPG or PNG files only; resolution 300dpi, min. size 1MB, max. size 5MB.

All images should be marked with your first name_surname, dash/hyphen, then the title of the work with underscore instead of spaces, e.g. John_Smith-View_of_Venice.

Each entry will be judged on your submitted image(s) alone and will be used for the online exhibition. It is therefore very important to represent your work as best you can. Poorly presented images, especially those that are out of focus, badly lit, pixelated or include distractions and imagery unassociated with the artwork such as reflections, frame or surroundings may be rejected. 

If photographing your work, it should be unframed and upright - make sure it is not at an angle. There is plenty of advice available on the internet.

You must not use filters or edit your image using software such as Photoshop beyond the basic resizing of your image for online submission. 

3. Title of Your Work

State the correct title of your artwork - this information will be used in the catalogue and on gallery labels.

4. Price of Your Work

State the price of your artwork - this will be shown in the catalogue and on gallery labels. Any works not for sale, state NFS on the entry form.
