    Questions regarding Spectrum submission

    Hi, I've always wanted to submit something to Spectrum but I‘m unsure of some of the submission guidelines and would appreciate any help.

    It says," Submit proofs, tearsheets, color photographic prints, clear photo copies, Iris prints, or slides only."

    Does that mean all that I need to submit are prints only?
    In that case, is the Iris print meant to be the final artwork that will be used for judging?
    Are the clear photo copies black and white print?

    Thanks for the help,
    Shawn

    R_M, I downloaded the Spectrum11 pdf entry forms from this website http://www.spectrumfantasticart.com/entry.html
    Is there something wrong? How do you do it?
    I tried to email them but I never recieve any reply so I thought I could post my questions here, hopefully someone can help me out. I tried asking people I know but none of them seems certain about it. If you can help me out that would be great.

    Whatever you submit is the artwork that will be used in the judging. Submit whatever format you feel shows the work to its best advantage. If a piece is selected for the book you will be contacted about providing a transparency or digital file for publication.

    Oh I see, so is it necessary to submit all this for the entry? Proofs, tearsheets, color photographic prints, clear photo copies, Iris prints. I heard doing proofs can be quite expensive which needs the proper equipments?

    i think what elwell meant was to just submit one of those formats, which ever will work best for you. if it's a digital piece and you have access to an awesome color printer, then just send in really nice print out of the piece. make sense?

    Exactly, just one, whichever you prefer. Proofs in this case would be for published pieces. For digital work something done on a good home printer will be fine if you can't or don't want to bother with an iris print. Photocopies are good for black and white line art. Slides would be best for unpublished traditonal paintings or dimentional work. Essentially what they're saying is they won't take original art or digital files.

    Trust me, the judges are overwhelmed enough, they don't need to see the same piece in six different formats to tell whether it's any good or not .

    Shawn, you should definitely submit the tiger warrior painting on your site. I think it's got a really good chance.

    That makes so much sense now. Thanks. I saw they have a rule which says only to submit any work done during that year. Does that mean any older work can't enter?

    Elwell, one of my friends told me to practice off another few more years before I send off anything there and save up my money for now. I guess his right but I still want to submit something even if it means not getting anything back. Thanks for the encouragment.

    Strictly speaking yes, although for unpublished work how's anyone really going to know? What you can't do, of course, is submit the same pieces year after year.
