Make sure you can check these requirements off before submitting:
- _____ Image is sized correctly: the longest side is 1000 pixels
- _____ Image is titled correctly: Ex: dtabisz_transportation_1
All participating images need to be framed in a 1-2” wooden black frame with a single
white mat. Please do not double mat. Note that frames are measured by the size of the opening in the back not by the outside of the frame. Mats should be a minimum of 2”.
Metal or plastic frames will not be accepted.
Hanging hardware must be fixed to the back (D-rings and wire). Wire should be 2½”
from top of frame and attached to the frame itself.
There are many ways to sign your image. If the mat is going to come up to the edge of the image the artist should sign the back or front of the image. The mat may also be
signed. If your image is going to be offset from mat (see above) it should be signed
on the front of the image, not the mat. Whichever you choose, remember that the mat can at some point become separated from the image so it is important to have the image signed.
