How to Make Quality Sample Images for Art Submissions

November 21, 2011 in Video/Film

Grant applications, art completions, exhibitions, and graduate schools often require online applications that make it mandatory for individuals to submit 10 to 20 high-quality jpegs of their work. The application process can be overwhelming for the first time applicant. Luckily the NYFA now has an instructional video titled, “Work Sample Seminar” posted on their website. It’s pretty helpful to watch for emerging artists who have never submitted before.

Blogger Kleva4Eva23 states in response to watching this video: “this is the problem with visual art. Any bozo can submit jpgs and just because the photograph looks good then the work is considered good. Kinda not fair. And not everything is art. I hate so-kalled conceptual artists who say a shoe lace is a masterpiece but they didn’t even make the shoelace. It’s redic.”
