Eligible Work

Submission of entries is open to all pastelists. Paintings must be entirely the work of the submitting artist. Paintings copied from others' work, from published material, or from photographs taken by another are not eligible. Paintings done under supervision, such as a workshop or class, are not eligible.

    Other guidelines include that the painting:
  • is at least 80% soft pastels; no oil pastels
  • was created within the last three years.
  • has not previously been shown in any PPSCC exhibition.
  • has not previously been shown at the Cultural Center
  • is not larger than 48" in any direction, framed size.
  • if mats are used, they must be clean.
  • uses no saw-tooth hangers

PPSCC reserves the right to refuse any painting that does not meet these professional standards. Return of such paintings will occur at the artist's expense.

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 entry page in the Image Preparation Tutorials if you need guidance with your image preparation.

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

Filename Instructions

Adjust your filenames BEFORE you begin the entry process!

Image File Naming Protocol

Use your name and the title of your painting without any spaces, special characters or punctuation marks. Use this protocol: Lastname_FirstInitial_TitleOfPainting.jpg. Be sure the file name ends with .jpg

For example: Artist = Abraham Lincoln, Title "The White House's Paint" = Lincoln_A_TheWhiteHousesPaint.jpg

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

Please Note: When completing the Entry Form, type in the actual painting title as you want it to appear in the show catalog.

For example: The White House's Paint
