SUBMISSION CRITERIA AND CONTENT
Entries must be original and of the artist’s or photographer’s own execution.  DO NOT SUBMIT works which violate copyright laws.   Artwork created and completed under the direct supervision of an instructor is not eligible.  Please do not submit art which had been entered into any of the exhibits at the SFVACC. Once artwork is submitted, it may not be substituted or withdrawn by the artist.  All juried artwork must remain online until the end of the exhibit.

ARTWORK FORMAT, PRESENTATION & REQUIREMENTS 
Artwork submissions are limited to six (6) original artworks per artist as .JPGs in the following media: drawing, mixed media, collage, printmaking, fiber art, photography, painting, digital art, sculpture, and assemblage.  All artwork images should be submitted unframed unless the artist feels that a particular style of mounting, matting or framing is crucial to proper artistic presentation.  This should be stated in the art’s description. 

FORMAT FOR DIGITAL IMAGES (JPGS)
All entries must be submitted as a high resolution, digital JPEG or JPG, maximum size 5MB, either cropped to remove background or on a black background without a mat.  Photos of the artwork should not be taken through glass or Plexiglas. Image quality is critical: Poor photography and presentation may affect acceptance by the juror. The digital image (JPG) must represent the submitted art. NOTE: ONCE YOU CLICK SUMBIT YOU CANNOT ADD OR REVISE YOUR SUBMISSION. 

ENTRIES & FEES   
One entry is $35.  Artist may add up to 5 additional entries (identified as media) (for a total of 6) at $5 each.  Payment is made through CaFÉ via credit card.  Fees are non-refundable.  There is no guarantee of acceptance into the exhibit.

SALES
SFVACC will put a prospective buyer in touch with the artist via e-mail.  All sales will be handled directly between the artist and buyer.  Prices cannot be changed from those stated at submission.  SFVACC will receive NO commission on any and all sales of art from the exhibit or as a result of the exhibit.  If artwork is sold, the artist must notify the SFVACC so a red dot (signifying it’s been sold) and SOLD in the place of the price, can be added.  Any artwork without a sale price on the entry form will be considered “Not for Sale” (NFS.)
