To submit artwork, please email email@example.com and include a high-quality image(s) or video(s) of a piece of artwork that you produced
this semester. There is no limit on the number of submissions per student as long
as each submission adheres to the guidelines listed below. Artwork does not need to
be professionally photographed, documenting it with your smart phone is fine. However,
please reference the recommendations below when photographing your artwork.
For 2-D artwork...
- The camera lens should be parallel to the artwork surface to avoid any distortion.
- Fill the frame of the camera with the artwork, making sure that there is no cropping
of the image.
- Experiment with a variety of lighting to see what works best. Avoid camera flash back
and images that are too dark. Photograph works unframed to avoid glare from glass
- If 2D artwork will fit on a bed of a digital scanner, scan the image at 300dpi.
- Rotate your image so it is in proper orientation.
For 3-D artwork...
- Submit several images from different views of your three-dimensional artwork.
- Photograph in front of a blank background, preferable a black or white surface, to
avoid any unnecessary visual disturbance behind the artwork.
- Leave some space around your piece to ensure that no portion of your work is cropped
- If your work has a kinetic element, also include a short video to illustrate this
The following information will also need to be included in the body of your email...
- Artist name
- Instagram handle, if you would like to be tagged.
- Title of work
- Course name/number and instructor
- A brief description of the artwork and/or class assignment
- (optional) A few additional sentences about your experiences of learning remotely
and how it has affected your art practice.
Artwork may not be accepted if the above submission guidelines are not followed. If
you have any questions or concerns, please reach out anytime to Alex DeCosta, firstname.lastname@example.org.
