Atelier Progressif Creative Space Call for Artists The Second Catskill Digital Art Competition Rules, Guidelines, and Instructions for Submissions All submissions must represent the actual artwork as closely as possible. If your work is misrepresented in anyway, we reserve the right to refuse to hang the artwork if it should be chosen for a live show. Submissions must be made online via our submission form. Your upload must accompany online payment or it will not be recognized. Submission images are the means by which the Gallery will determine which artworks will be accepted for competition. We are not asking for the originals at this time. Due to inconsistencies, we ask that you do not watermark your images but please note that our primary use of the image will always be alongside text which credits the artist. JPG Images Your submission images should be smaller than 1 MB each. A good rule of thumb is to set the image resolution to 72 ppi and keep the long dimension of the image under 1024 pixels. Your files must be labeled: First name, Last name, Title of the piece, Medium, Height x Width in inches.jpg. Make sure to place underscores between your name and the name of the piece (i.e. your name_art title_medium_HxW.JPG). Video Requirements For video submissions, upload your videos to YouTube or Vimeo and submit their URLs via email. The first minute of each video will be reviewed. Selection Criteria: Artists’ submissions will be selected based on skill, technique, and originality. Submissions should be cohesive and reflect a discernible creative sensibility. There will be a number of opportunities for solo exhibitions and also some group shows. If your work is being considered for a solo show, more jpgs may be requested. Processing fee is $45.00 via Pay Pal If your submission is accepted, we will ask you to send your images to our office for gallery exhibition. Return postage must be included with winning entries. Please take care to ship your artwork carefully with padding and we will return it to you in the same box with the same padding. The return postage can be a label or a bill of lading from UPS, FedEx or USPS included with your artwork; local artists may deliver in person, by appointment. For gallery exhibitions all artwork must be labeled on the back with the artist’s name, price, and name of piece. All artwork must be delivered by at least 5 days before the art reception. Artists will be notified of their status via e-mail. Publicity: Entry into this exhibition constitutes artist’s permission for Atelier Progressif to reproduce work for publicity purposes, both in print and digital form.
