Preparing your printed pieces:

With exception to size, your final print must be an unmodified version of the juried digital submission.

Images printed on the following substrates are acceptable: Any quality photo, metallic or fine art paper. Canvas, aluminum, wood and acrylic are also acceptable.

Professional presentation is a must! Use industry accepted matting and framing techniques. It is understood that some nontraditional substrates, i.e., aluminum, wood, acrylic and gallery wrap canvas may be displayed without the addition of a finished frame assembly (matte, glass & frame). Non-gallery wrap canvas work requires a finished frame.

The minimum photo print size is 8” on the short side. Finished work must not exceed 20”x24” in height or width including frame size (glass/Plexiglas dimensions).

All entries must be wired for hanging using picture hanging wire. No saw tooth hangers are permitted.

Submitted juror-approved work that does not meet the above requirements will not be accepted – no exceptions.

Please affix an identification label to the rear top left corner of the finished juror-approved photograph. The visible label must include: Name, Address, Phone Number, Email Address, Title, and Valued Price (for insurance purposes), along with age of contestant if between the ages of 13-17. NOTE: photographs will not be for sale during the Exhibit at the Elliott Museum.  

 

IMPORTANT: The same information as contained on each label must be submitted by email to:
