  • Works must have been completed within the past 3 years and must be identical to accepted entry image.

Image Specifications

All images must be high quality jpeg (jpg) image files. Set your camera to the highest possible quality image, use good lighting on your painting without any glass in front of it, and use a tripod for your camera. Once the photo is taken, you must crop out all parts of the photo that are not the actual painting; do not show mat, frame, etc, only the painting itself. Please save at 300 dpi resolution, with a size of 900 pixels on the longer side of the image (i.e. for a horizontal format, the width should be 900 pixels; for vertical format, the height will be 900 pixels; for a square format both dimensions are 900 pixels.). The upload system will not accept very large files, so you must reduce the native image size to these specifications.

Please consult the prospectus and the information provided on the CPS website if you need guidance with your image preparation. The CPS website contains tutorials on the "Member Resources" page under the Members menu.

Prepare your images using these specifications BEFORE you start the entry process!
