How to enter 2020

HAS Annual Exhibition 2020 online

The annual exhibition this year will be online, showing for the whole of August, and open only to members of Hornsea Art Society.

Each paid-up member can submit two entries. Two images may be submitted for each 3D work, if appropriate. Entries are free.

There will be no categories and our judge this year, Patrick Smith, will select Best Exhibit and two runners-up.

Deadline for submissions is 24 July 2020.

Send your images to Pam Williams at website@hornseaartsociety.co.uk

Work submitted must not have been shown at a previous HAS annual exhibition or at either of the HAS online ‘challenges’ in April and May. Ideally members are encouraged to produce new work for the exhibition.

Submit your image as a jpeg file. I’d suggest no smaller than 200 KB and no larger than 5 MB with a resolution of 72 dpi. Try to submit as good a quality of image as possible. It’s probably better to use the high quality function on a camera but many people will find it easier to use their phones or ipads.

Try to SAVE your image with your name and title of artwork: Pam_Williams_Leven_Canal.jpeg for example. If you have trouble naming your image, be clear in your email to me about which title refers to which image.

Images should be cropped, if possible, with no background showing. Do not edit your image using software beyond basic resizing. It is advisable to set your 3D work against a plain background for clearer viewing.

Remember to take a photo of your work BEFORE you put it in a frame. Images of framed work under glass will probably not show the artwork accurately. It would be better to submit another artwork.

Information to be supplied with each image in your email is as follows:

  • NAME OF ARTIST as you want it to appear online
  • TITLE of artwork
  • MEDIUM 
  • Dimensions of 2D artwork in cms (height x width), dimensions of 3D artwork in cm (height x width x depth)
  • Price if for sale. If artwork is for sale and is framed, dimensions in cms (height x width) including the frame.
  • Contact details if artwork is for sale, email OR telephone. If you want to sell your work and you do not want your details to appear online, use the email above, website@hornseaartsociety.co.uk, and I will pass on your details to any potential buyer.
