Guidelines for Digital Submission

Only digital photographs/images taken of the artwork are eligible for this contest.

Each submission must include the following

  • Online entry form filled completely
  • Digital photograph of the artwork in the appropriate format outlined below

Format for the digital photograph of the artwork

  • While taking the photograph, the camera lens should be parallel to the artwork surface. Do not angle the lens as this distorts the image. Experiment with a variety of lighting to see what works best. Avoid camera flash back or images that are too dark. Fill the frame of the camera with the artwork.
  • For artwork that will fit on a bed of a digital scanner, scan the image at 100%.
  • Sargent Art requests that images are ONLY altered in the following ways

  • Orientation: Work should be rotated properly so that a work is not laying on its side while viewing. Re-orientation during adjudication may not be possible, or may distort the dimensions of the image.
  • Cropping: Crop background other than the artwork

JPG Files

  • JPG should be captured by a 2+ mega pixel camera. Set camera for “fine” or “extra fine” resolution and not “web” or “normal”
  • Image Print size: Each JPG file must be at least 1500 x 2100 pixels
