ARTWORK SUBMISSION CRITERIA AND CONTENT

CAL is dedicated to exhibiting excellent works of fine art which promote the artist’s artistic ability, vision, and creativity. In this respect, all artwork should be original and created from conception to completion by the artist within the last three years, and not previously shown in any CAL Juried Show. Artists are permitted to use their own photos as reference materials in the creation of their artwork, but not photos from other sources. No artwork copied from other artists work, copyrighted work, published photos, or created under the direct guidance of an instructor, are eligible.  The only exception is collage work which may include small portions of other artists work.


ARTWORK MEDIA, ENTRIES and FEES

Artwork submissions can be in any of the following media: drawing, painting, photography, digital art, mixed media, collage, and sculpture. Choosing the 3D art option will allow you to submit multiple jpgs for the same piece of art, which is useful for sculptures and highlighting details of your artwork (if needed).

Entries will be made online and juried using digital images, (jpegs), through Online Juried ShowsEntries may be made in more than one medium. Artwork submissions are limited to five original artworks per artist.   

Fees are:  One or two entries: $35.00 for CAL members in good standing and $55.00 for non-CAL members. The $20.00 surcharge is a one-time offer that gives the new artist membership into CAL at a discount, which is good for the rest of the year. All entrants may enter additional artwork for $5.00 per piece fee up to a total of 5 entries. Payment is made through OJS via credit card or PayPal. Fees are non-refundable. There is no guarantee of acceptance into the show. New members whose work is juried in to this show will be considered “exhibiting members”, and will be eligible to submit work as an exhibiting member for acceptance in all future CAL shows.


FORMAT FOR DIGITAL IMAGES (jpegs) AND HOW TO SEND THEM

All entries must be submitted in digital JPEG format. Photograph your art with a digital camera on a black background, (if cropping is not possible), without a mat or frame, and not through glass. Image quality is critical! Poor photography and presentation will affect acceptance by the juror. The digital image must represent the painting.
