For composite images, no elements to be produced by others).
Artwork previously shown at the Guild will not be accepted.
The Guild has the right to reject objectionable and non-conforming images.
Entry Procedure: All entries must be submitted on line as digital jpg image files. The judges will review the digital jpg images to select those suitable for conditional acceptance to exhibit in the show. The final award judging will be based on the actual artwork on display in the exhibit. Up to 3 works may be submitted. Based on the judges’ decision and subject to exhibit space availability, all of your entries may be accepted.
Each entry uploaded must be in the JPG format with no less than 2000 pixels on the longest side.
Your JPG files must be named as follows:
Category (painting, photography, or sculpture)_your last name_your first name__title of artwork
For example: painting_Davis_John_The Tree on the Hill.jpg
Note the placement of the underscores. Do not include underscores in the title of the JPG nor in the Title section of the entry form.
If you’re not sure how to size and name your JPG you are urged to have someone help you.

Acceptance: Initial judging will be based on the JPG images submitted. On September 10 a list of artists and artwork conditionally accepted into the exhibit by the judge will be posted on the Guild’s website at www.guildofcreativeart.org. An email will be sent to registrants when the list has been posted.
