You are now on the submission page. Please take the time to read the Rules and Conditions before continuing. By entering any of our competitions you are granting us a non-exclusive license to publish your image on our website, our newsletter and any other promotional material. You nonetheless retain the copyright of your image.
Also take the time to prepare your images before you fill out the submission form. We will walk you through how to go about doing that below.
Preparing your Images
The first thing you need to do is photograph your work so that it looks awesome. Read the guide we put together on How to Photograph Your Art to avoid wasting your time and money potentially uploading images of poor quality that we will be forced to reject.
Poor quality images are images with any of the following problems: flash glare, out of focus, poorly cropped or not cropped (i.e we see the wall or frame), uneven lighting, underexposed or overexposed images, reflective glare and motion blur. If your images have any of these problems we will be forced to reject them. Of course, we don’t want to do that so we’ll say it again: if you’re new to taking pictures of your art read the guide.
Once you’re confident that you have great photos of your artwork, be sure that each image is:
- Saved as a JPEG file
- Does not exceed 150 dpi and 2MB in size
- Is no more than 800 pixels on its widest or longest side
You must name your file by following this format:
Example: if Jackson Pollock was an up and coming artist today submitting “Lavender Mist: Number 1” to an Exhibeo art contest, he would send us his work as a JPEG file and the file name would look like this:
It is very important that you respect this format when naming your files. It allows us to keep your identity and your art work together at all times.
To modify your images you can use the following programs: Photoshop, Illustrator and Picasa. Picasa can be downloaded for free and Photoshop or Illustrator can be purchased or downloaded as a free 30 day trial version. Basic cropping and contrast adjustments are very easy to use on all these platforms.
Once you’ve got the photos of your art set up according to these specs, you are ready to fill out the submission form* by clicking on one of the three image submission packages below:
