No oil pastels. Compositions taken from published material will not be considered original. Work produced under supervision is ineligible. Work previously exhibited in any CPP Exhibition or The Art Center Highland Park is not eligible. CPP reserves the right to refuse any painting that does not meet these professional standards. Return of such paintings will occur at the artistís expense. All accepted work must remain on exhibit for the duration of the show. All work must be for sale. Once prices are submitted and the entry deadline is past, they are final.

Image Specifications

Please follow the instructions carefully regarding the preparation of your images.
  1. Set your camera for a very high quality image that is not less than 300 dpi. This will be a large file size. Make sure your camera is square with the painting when you shoot, so that the image is not skewed or distorted. Use of a tripod is suggested. You may make adjustments, but only as needed to make the image look more like your painting.
  2. Crop the image. No mat, frame, or extraneous material should appear other than the painting. Now make a copy of this image (SAVE AS). Keep the original for your own records.
  3. See the image preparation tutorials linked on this page.
  4. Resize the copy image with a resolution of 300 dpi to a length of 900 pixels on the longest side.
  5. Save this copy now with a new filename, as follows: Lastname_firstinitial_paintingtitle. You may have to alter the title as it appears in the filename of the image file only. For example if your name is Jane Doe and your painting is titled Early Sunday Morning, the filename you would give to the digital image is: Doe_J_EarlySundayMorning.jpg. But during the entry process, you would type in the actual Title of the painting as Early Sunday Morning when asked for the Title, Price, Size, etc.
  6. Save the image as a high quality jpg. (Use the "Save As" function to select jpg and the highest quality.) The image title will now end with .jpg For example: Doe_J_EarlySundayMorning.jpg
  7. Images not meeting the requirements may be disqualified. If your software does not give you the necessary options to prepare your images as specified, consider buying Adobe Photoshop Elements (under $100) or get someone who has the proper software to help you.
Prepare your images using these specifications BEFORE you start the entry process!

Filename Instructions

Name your image files BEFORE you start the entry process!

The Title of each painting you submit appears in two places:

(1) you type in the title of the painting in the space provided for the information about the piece; this will be just as you would wish the title to appear in the show catalog (e.g. My Uncle's Lonely Road), and

(2) the title appears also as part of the filename you give to the digital image you will upload, and for this purpose you should remove any spaces, quotation marks, etc. (e.g. MyUnclesLonelyRoad)

Use the following protocol for giving your image file a name for submission: Start with your last name, followed by an underscore, followed by your first initial, followed by another underscore, then the title of the image without spaces, then make sure it has the extension ".jpg".

For example: Carson_R_SilentSpring.jpg.

Shorten long titles in the filename, please, and remove all spaces and quotation marks.

Fee Structure

$35 for current CPP members for up to 3 images. For Non-members, $45 for up to 3 images. Payment will be made through Show Submit by credit/debit card or PayPal. No refund of entry fees.
