Submissions: Represent

Deadline For Entries: March 15, 2017, Midnight

 

What if you had a chance to be Represented by a gallery? Would you send your portfolio?  Represent is an opportunity to receive maximum publicity and exposure for your work in a unique gallery setting.  It will not only be open to an art loving public but to a unique audience that would never think of setting foot in a gallery or a museum.

Artists who are accepted will receive 8 images on display, maximized for viewing and Search Engines, an Artist Statement, Résumé and a link to their website.  Both the Artist Statement and Résumé will receive free editing. On our Pinterest profile artists will receive a board and be invited to post to that board regularly.  There will be first mention in press releases, where applicable, and dedicated publicity for their work.  Artists will also receive a one hour consultation and planning session so that they can maximize their use of the internet for both publicity and sales.

 

ELIGIBILITY
Artists over the age of 21 are eligible to submit work to this exhibition.
All work must be original, created by the artist who is submitting the work.

Labeling your Images
The way you label your images can make all the difference in whether you are accepted for representation or not. 

Please label your images as follows

or

lastname_titleofimage.gif

Please make sure you use all lowercase letters and only use dots ( . ) for extensions (such as .jpg or .gif)
We are asking for this because it helps us keep track of your work.

REMINDER: YOUR IMAGES AND VIDEOS ARE WHAT VIEWERS SEE

Your images and videos ARE what the viewers will see.  It IS the art.  Poor Quality Images and Videos will be disqualified.  Please remember that the submission fee is non-refundable and once you submit an image or video it cannot be changed.  Your submission is final. 

 

IMAGE TIPS
• Make sure that the lighting on your images is even. (Turn Off The Flash On Your Camera.)

• Make sure your work is perfectly cropped.  (Don't even leave a sliver on the side).

• Make sure the color is 100% correct.

• Make sure there is no blurring anywhere in your image.

• Do not include the frame in your image (unless it is part of your concept).

• Make sure your image isn't even slightly skewed.
