Before Filling Out Online Form
Have you carefully read and understood the Prospectus?
This is a juried show. You may enter up to three artworks, but only artworks juried into the show will be displayed at the Auxiliary Gallery.
Are you a member of PAL or intend to be one by April 1?
Membership is required for images to be juried. If not a member, become a member HERE.
Are your images in format .jpeg or .jpg and only of the artwork itself (and not artwork and frame)? Are they the right size?
Your image will have a better chance in the jurying if it is 1200 pixels on the longest side (see examples below). Entered images greater than 1200 px on the longest side will be resized to 1200 px on the longest side. You will not be allowed to upload images greater than 2 MB. By resizing correctly before uploading, you save on committee time, email size and server space.
Longest side vs image size: Click on a thumbnail to view image. The captions below the images are the number of pixels of the longest side. Would you want the judge to view your artwork at 300 px, 400 px, or even 800 px when other artworks will be 1200 px? Unfortunately, you cannot resize up. If you only have a small image of your artwork, you will need to take another photograph or take a chance that the judge will be able to see beyond its smaller size.
Have you renamed images to lastname_title (for example: Smith_Fog.jpg)?
You can abbreviate the title if necessary, but it is important we can identify your images as yours.
Can you easily locate your images for uploading?
Can you fill in the framed size (height x width in inches) of your artwork?
Minimum framed size: 16” x 20” (no smaller size can be accepted)/ Maximum framed size: 30” x 40” – no rococo frames – no glass accepted/ Maximum weight: 8 pounds.
