How to enter 2021

  HORNSEA ANNUAL EXHIBITION 2021

The annual exhibition will be online again this year, 1-31 August, and is open only to members of Hornsea Art Society.

Each member can submit two entries. Work submitted must not have been shown at a previous HAS exhibition. Ideally, members are encouraged to produce new work for the exhibition, but if that’s not possible, work submitted for the HAS online challenges will be acceptable.

There will be a winner and two runners-up, selected by our judge, Glynn Macey. The Singleton Rose Bowl will be awarded for most votes from the public. Voting is open to HAS members and non-members alike, but is LIMITED TO ONE VOTE PER PERSON. Choose your favourite exhibit and Send details of favourite exhibit (artist and title) by email to Phil Hargreaves at hengate@aol.com. CLOSING DATE for voting is 31 AUGUST 2021.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ENTRIES TO THE EXHIBITION is 23 July 2021, but please send your images at any time before that date if you can, to help spread the workload.

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

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. TWO images for each entry may be submitted for 3D artwork

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 and may reflect a flash. 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 cms (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  website@hornseaartsociety.co.uk (which directs emails to me) and I will pass on your details to any potential buyer. Buyers tend to be from the Hornsea area and delivery of artwork is often by hand, but if the buyer is not local, it’s worth considering postage and packaging costs. Sending your artwork by post can cause problems, e.g. if your work is framed and under glass, you might think to use perspex instead.
