Do not neglect your images! The jurors reviewing your artwork are looking for originality, quality and consistency in your ideas, execution, and design. They make much of their decision based on what they see in your support material.
If you do not have experience making digital images, we recommend hiring a professional photographer to document your work. If this is not an option, here are a few tips for shooting good images.
1. Photograph your work in a room with soft, even light, not direct hard lighting
2. Take test shots and review them on your computer prior to upload. The jurors will be viewing your images on a monitor or from a projector in a dark room.
3. Upload with the image in the proper direction (horizontal/vertical)
4. If your work is framed or has a glossy finish, do not use direct flash on your camera. Put the work flat against a wall at a 45-degree angle to a window with indirect light. Shoot with a polarizer filter.
5. Choose the correct white balance.
6. Shoot high-resolution photos.
Jury & Selection Process
The Latin Arts Festival Juried Art Show is a juried exhibition. A panel of jurors from the Tacoma Art Museum, Washington State Arts Commission and Tacoma Art Commission will review all submissions. The juror panel will select the strongest work based on originality, quality of support materials, consistency of ideas and design.
All artists will receive a notification of status electronically two to three days after application submission. The final date for application submission is: August 1, 2017.
