When you apply to a gallery or art show, make sure you follow the instructions on the prospectus.
Not doing so is disrespectful and may result in your submission being thrown out.
Pay attention to the following:
- How to apply (direct submission, Zapp etc)
- Eligibilty requirements such as residency/location, age, experience
- media/style accepted
- image requirements (number of images, file type and image size, labeling/file name)
- required jury/booth fees
- submission deadlines
Fill out your form completely and honestly. Don't leave any required fields blank (or heaven forbid lie) - and if you don't understand something, ask for clarification.
