Issues we encountered from November AMS CFE you need to be aware of and more clarifying information:
You will need an artist statement - 200 Word limit in first person in order to enter the shows.
1. You do not have to create a portfolio site to enter the show.
2. The way you fill out the form is how it will be shown on the labels, excel spread sheets, awards and publicity.
a. Use a capital Letter for your First and Last Name
b. Make sure Prices are correct - we encountered folks not having enough 0000s.
c. Vertical Measurements should be first then Width then depth
d. If art is to be framed for display, we need images and measurements of the art in the frame. If we do not have the measurements framed or the image framed, your piece will not be considered to jury. (We had many folks give us the wrong measurements because they waited to frame the piece if it got accepted. DO NOT DO THIS!! Give us the correct measurements DO NOT GUESS.)
e. Statement regarding the piece of art - The character limit is 300!! This is used for all publicity online and inhouse. Spell check it as well as word count it!
f. FYI - you do not have to add all the information at once. You can go back in and add images and edit until the call ends.
g. Please double check all information.
You can leave this video on your call site's homepage (or embed it on any page) for a quick tutorial your users can watch to help them with the submission process.
