Please contact us if you need any help to submit your entry.


  • Take a good quality photograph of your work to upload with the application.

  • Please ensure the image of the work is well lit, clear and in focus, has plenty of clear space around the piece so nothing is cropped, and the background is removed or is very plain so it doesn't impact the appearance of the work. Any background shown will removed for judging and exhibiting.

  • Keep your painting upright — To avoid distortion (such as the bottom of your image being wider than the top) make sure your painting is upright — either by hanging it on a wall or propping it on an easel. If you can't achieve a perfect upright position, ensure your phone and painting are at the same angle.
