ELIGIBILITY
The competition is open to artists anywhere in the world. Only original artwork, conceived and created by the entrant, will be considered. “Original” means that if a painting is based on reference photos, the photos were taken by the artist or were used with permission of the photographer. Work done in photography, including any use of photographs or photocopies other than as minor elements of a collage, will not be considered. Digital or computer-generated artwork will not be considered. Sculpture will not be considered. Employees of F+W Media, Inc., and their immediate families, are not eligible.

PREPARING YOUR ENTRY
You may enter work in any and all categories; there is no limit to the number of images you may enter. 

Enter online or mail all your entries in on one CD. If entering by mail, please include a separate sheet that gives the title, medium (oil, watercolor, etc.) and dimensions of each image. The titles of the images on the CD must match the titles on the sheet. All entries should be accompanied by an entry form. Incomplete entry forms and information sheets, and improperly named image files will be disqualified.

Image files cannot exceed 2MB. The file must be saved as a JPEG in RGB color mode (not CMYK)

Fees and Payment: All entries in the Student/Beginner Division (for artists age 16 and over who (1) have been enrolled in a post-high school art program for no more than four years OR (2) have pursued art on their own or in workshops/lessons for no more than four years) are $15 per image. All others are $25 per  image. A credit card number and signature or a check or money order for the required jury fee (in U.S. funds, drawn on a U.S. bank) must accompany your submission. Please keep in mind that you can use a check or money order to pay your jury fees when entering online. There will be a $10 charge for all returned checks or declined credit cards. Credit cards will be charged within 90 days of contest deadline. Charges will appear as “F+W contests.”

With all the beautiful illustrations I have seen, I know someone out there could submit and win some kudos and money.

Talk tomorrow,

Kathy
