Step 1: Image Capture.
Before beginning registration, you will need a high quality digital image for each painting.
  • Do not include mat or frame in your submitted image.
  • Set your digital camera or personal device to a high-quality setting to take the photo. If using a newer model personal device or cell phone, recommend transferring a LARGE image to a computer for adjustment, as overall image size cannot exceed 4MB.
  • Open, level, crop and adjust your image as appropriate. You may need to adjust the longest side of your image to between 1920 pixels (smallest) and 4600px (largest).
  • Save your image(s) for later retrieval.
  • Image sizing assistance is available before March 13, 2018.
 
Step 2: Create User Account.
User accounts from previous UWS exhibitions do carry over. New users will need to create a user account.
To create your unique user account, go to http://uws2018springexhibition.artcall.org/.
  • Select “Register” in the upper right of your screen.
  • All Entrants must have a valid email address to enter.
  • Fill in all appropriate fields; then create your user account.
  • You may optionally add a short biography statement in your user account.
 
Step 3: Payment.
Log in to the account you just created. ArtCall requires payment before submitting entry details and uploading images.
  • You can pay using a credit card on this same secure site.
  • You may pay for three entries at once, or submit one at a time.
  • Contact the Exhibition Coordinators, barbarakidd@comcast.net or galtann@ymail.com if payment by check is your only option (March 13th is the deadline for receiving check payments).
  • No entry fee refunds will be issued once payment is received.
 
 
Step 4: Input Entry Specifics.
After paying, follow the prompts to input your entry information for title, category, media, size, price, and artist’s statement. The artist’s statement is optional.
  • If you are entering multiple works for consideration, enter painting details for all entries.
 
Step 5: Image Upload.
Upload your high-quality image(s) from your computer, smart phone, or other personal device.
  • Size criteria will be displayed. If your image does not meet the required specifications (i.e. too large or too small), you will receive a notice to make adjustments.
  • Once your image upload finishes, select the blue View Final Submission button at the bottom left of the screen, to verify your entry.
 
Step 6: Verify Entry.
After selecting View Final Submission, you will be taken back to your main account page.
  • If all is well, you will see a small icon-sized view of your painting image with your entry submission.
  • If your image upload was not successful, you will see a warning that no image is attached to your entry.
  • To review your entry details, select the blue icon that looks like a bulleted list.
  • If you need to make any changes, click on the orange Edit icon at the far right column of the entry.
 
Repeat Steps 2-5 for additional entries, as appropriate.
 
You will be able to access and make changes to your submissions up until the entry deadline.
  • Once finished, you can verify your entry from your main login page.
  • To later edit your entry or entries, go back to the same website and click the blue Login button.
    • Enter your email and password to open your user account.
    • If you wish to change an entry, select the Edit option to change entry details.
    • If you want to change the image, select the red trashcan option under the image. Then upload a new image. Do NOT delete the entire entry (trashcan on the far right).
    • If you inadvertently click the wrong trashcan button, you will be given a warning and asked if you wish to continue. Select Cancel.
      • To re-enter a deleted submission, you will need to contact the Exhibition Coordinator to avoid being charged another entry fee.

 
Note: If you think you may struggle with either the online entry process and/or need image preparation assistance, we have a team ready to help! However, your deadline comes a week early. Please be courteous and plan ahead. Contact the UWS Exhibition Coordinators, barbarakidd@comcast.net or Ann Galt, galtann@ymail.com before March 13, 2018.
