The Online Submission Process
- STEP 1: REGISTRATION
The following information is required of every applicant
your date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy)
your email address
your telephone number
your mailing address
Applicants for only the Dexter Jones Award, check the appropriate box when registering.
Applicants for the Figure Modeling Competition may request to be considered for a travel assistance award, in which case indicate your estimated travel expenses.
STEP 2: SUBMITTING YOUR SCULPTURAL IMAGES INFORMATION
The second step of the online submission process is submitting your sculptural images information.
The following information is required for each sculptural image submitted.
*by filename we mean the name of the image file associated with the sculpture. If the image file of your first sculpture image is saved as 'sculpture1.jpg', then the filename is sculpture1. Filenames should not contain spaces or special characters. The filename does not have to reflect the name of the sculpture. However, it must match the name of the image file associated with the sculpture. You must submit the information for every sculpture before proceeding to Step 3.
STEP 3: UPLOADING YOUR IMAGE FILES
The image upload form allows uploading three image files at a time. You can return to the form as many times as needed to upload your image files. All the files must be uploaded before proceeding to STEP 4.
all image files must be in JPEG format with the .jpg file extension.
all image files must have a resolution of 72dpi.
each image file should be 500px on its longest side. If your image is vertically oriented, it should be 500px tall. If it is horizontally or landscape oriented, it should be 500px wide.
the filenames should not contain spaces or special characters.
there are no restrictions other than the above in naming your files. The names do not have to correspond to the title of the piece. But whatever you name your file, you must enter that name correctly (without the .jpg) in the filename field when you are submitting your sculpture.
STEP 4 :: UPLOADING YOUR BIOGRAPHY
You are required to submit a brief bio/resume.
Simply copy and paste your bio into the form.
Unless you have formatted your bio in html, no fancy formatting will translate to the internet
