Submissions are easy, but please read all guidelines before submitting. Here’s what you will need to submit:

  1. Up to 10 digital images of your work (if you would prefer to submit fewer, that’s fine too):
    • Resolution: low (72 dpi)
    • Format: .jpg, .gif or .png only. Please be aware that your files will be viewed by the jurors on the web, and if you submit files in .tif, .psd or other non-web-viewable formats, they will not be visible and you will be disqualified.
    • Size: 700 pixels on the longest side, and a file size NO larger than 500 kb.
    • The caption/title, medium and dimensions for each image you intend to submit, including English translations if the captions are not in English. These do not need to be directly attached to the image file in any way — the image upload form provides fields for filling this information in.
    • Please choose the images that you submit from a concise body of work which you feel best represents the style you work within.
  2. An artist’s statement regarding your work.
  3. A brief one-paragraph bio suitable for use in a book or exhibition catalogue.
  4. A complete CV (curriculum vitae) focussing on your artistic career.
