    Entry Advice

    Photograph your work straight on in a clear, well and naturally lit space. Wait for a nice sunny day and photograph your work in a bright room or outside. Make sure the camera is exactly parallel to your work, there is no glare or shine on the paint and you can't see your shadow.

    Crop the image of your work down to JUST the artwork. This means crop out the mount and frame round your work (unless its intrinsic to the piece e.g. the painting flows onto the frame), the wall/surface your work is displayed on, your sofa etc. The image you submit should be the kind of image you could make a reproduction print from. 

    Images of artwork must be at least 1000px wide (with a resolution of at least 72px per inch). The maximum jpeg file size is 3MB. Artwork with a copyright stamp or watermark on it will not be accepted.

    If your submission does not meet the above standards (e.g. the image is dark or blurry, it is not cropped correctly or the file is too small), it will be disqualified from the competition.
