Work Eligible

Open to all artists, members and non-members. Traditional soft pastels only – NO OIL PASTELS.
  • Original artwork only. All paintings done in a school, school-monitored studio or workshop, or under instructor supervision or copied from published photographs or photographs made by someone other than the artist or painted over a mechanical reproduction are ineligible and will be rejected.
  • All subjects and styles are eligible, from traditional to contemporary.
  • Artwork must be predominantly (80%) pastel.
  • Size limit including frame: 48” in either direction. Oversized work will not be juried. If a framed painting arrives that exceeds size limitations, it will not be hung. Work must be firmly framed with screw eyes and strong wire, ready to hang.
  • Work must be for sale – no NFS or POR. A 25% donation to the Pastel Society of America, Inc. will be accepted on all sales.

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 1200 pixels on the longer side of the image (i.e. for a horizontal format, the width should be 1200 pixels; for vertical format, the height will be 1200 pixels; for a square format both dimensions are 1200 pixels.). The upload system will not accept very large files, so you must reduce the native image size to these specifications.

NOTE: Image size has been changed to 1200 pixels on the longer side!

Please consult the prospectus and the information provided on the PSA website if you need guidance with your image preparation.

See the PSA website for image preparation tutorials.

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

Filename Instructions

Name your image files

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.

On the entry form in the box for Title do enter the actual title of the piece as you would want it to appear in the show catalogue.

PRICING INFORMATION

The Collectors Purchase program is unique to the Pastel Society of America. Collectors agree in advance to donate $1,000 for each pastel of their choice among designated pastels in the exhibition.

If your painting is juried into the exhibition, you will receive a painting exhibition label. At that time you may indicate participation in the Collectors Purchase program by checking a box on the painting exhibition label. 

Paintings in the program must be priced at $1,000 or higher. The price you put on your painting at the time you enter through ShowSubmit is the record we will go by for catalog and sales purposes. Changes in price between the entry deadline, June 11, and receiving will not be honored. You may edit the price of your painting up until the entry deadline.

In all cases, the collector pays the artist a flat $1,000, no matter the printed price. The artist receives the entire amount if her/his painting is selected for purchase; PSA does not take a commission.
