ELIGIBILITY
The artwork pictured must be original to the artist. All mediums are acceptable, but sculptors and other artists whose images will include background material should consider how the background factors into the final image reproduced for display: i.e., the background should be aesthetically appropriate.

JURORS
Director’s choice. Please note, there is no personal feedback given by jurors.

NOTIFICATION
Notification will be done by email. If for any reason you do not receive your notification by the notification date, please check the filters in your email account.

ENTRY BY WEBSITE UPLOAD ONLY
Entry is done through Café, a web-based service that allows artists to upload images and organize their artwork for submissions to galleries. To apply for a call, you must leave our website and go to the Café website at www.callforentry.org  where you can create a FREE artist account. You will add your details and upload your images to Café and then you can submit work to UPLIFTING ART 2017.

FORMATTING
All images must be in JPEG format using Café guidelines. The image size must be no smaller than 1920 pixels on the longest side at 72 dpi. Maximum file size is 5 mb. Successful submissions must later be provided in large, 300 dpi TIFF files, so artists would be wise to create such files to archive, especially if the work in question is for sale.

Dimensions
The elevator doors measure 36” wide x 80” high, which translates into a 1:2.2 ratio. (Portrait orientation.) Images that are more than half as wide as they are high may be cropped to fit the available space.

SALES
All sales inquiries will be directed to the artist’s website.

REGULATIONS
The actual artwork will remain the property of the artist. The images, provided as high resolution digital files, will be reproduced on material to be affixed to the elevator doors for one year. The artists will grant copyright to the Cultural Center for this and promotional use.
