ENTRY BY WEBSITE UPLOAD
Entry is done through Smarter Entry a web-based service that allows artists to upload images of their artwork for submissions to exhibits. To apply for a call, you must leave our website and go to the Smarter Entry  website at https://client.smarterentry.com/CulturalCenterofCapeCod where you can create a FREE artist account. You will add your details and upload your images to Smarter Entry where your work will be submitted to UPLIFTING ART 2019.

FORMATTING
All images must be in JPEG format using Smarter Entry guidelines. Maximum file size per image is 8mb. 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. Please submit work in portrait orientation only, landscape cannot translate to these dimensions. 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.
