Bloomington Photography Club
2018 Juried Exhibit at the
Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center


GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING WORKS FOR JURYING

Eligibility
To submit images for this exhibit, you must be a current member of the Bloomington Photography Club. Membership application forms and payment can be completed during drop-off.

Images must be original work by the artist. Images that have appeared in any previous BPC exhibit, whether juried or not, may NOT be submitted. (Photoshares at club meetings do not count as exhibits.) If you are not sure whether an exhibit was sponsored by the club, please check with Tom Zoss, chair of the Exhibitions Committee at tzoss@zoss.com

Images that were submitted to a previous club jurying but were not accepted may be resubmitted.


Drop-off of Images and Jurying Procedure
Drop-off of digital images will take place on the evening of Thursday, May 3, in the club’s regular meeting room at the First Presbyterian Church. Entries should be dropped off between 5:30 and 7:00 p.m. Unlike recent years when drop-off, jurying, and pick-up were scheduled for the same evening, jurying for the 2018 exhibit will be held a few days later. Notification of accepted images will be communicated via email within a week or so after drop-off evening.


Number of submissions and cost
You may submit up to three works, with an entry fee of $2.00 each, payable by cash or check. A registration form will need to be completed for each image. Registration forms will be available on drop-off evening.  You may also download, print, and complete the registration form from this website to simplify the drop-off procedure for when an agent brings someone’s images.


Preparation of images
This year all images submitted for jurying must be two-dimensional photographic images in digital form. Images should be resized to: Longest side should be 2000 pixels. If your images are not in this format assistance will be available to resize images at the drop-off site. Print resolution of 300 ppi requested, and Jpeg files are preferred.

Image files will be renamed to hide photographer names, digital signatures removed, and then randomly sorted before jurying. Please take care that no name, signature, or watermark is part of the image submitted to the jury so that the jurying process can be fully fair and anonymous.

May 3 (Thursday), Drop-off of digital images Jurying 5:30 to 7:00 at First Presbyterian Church
