Entry fee $45 (4 images) with a $5.00 fee for each additional JPG. NOTE: Maximize your chances with a judge. Minimun suggested application 10 images (total Paypal fee $70). There are several things that artists can do to maximize their chances with competition judges; to draw more attention to an entry, an artwork should have strong composition, and use strong values with sharp, high contrasts to catch the eye. “Enter the works that have the strongest compositions.” “Irreversible look for the best work that shows a mastery of drawing, composition, color and technique.” If you want the best chance of getting an award, we think you have a better chance with a series of larger works than a very small, few images or tiny work.”
