Work doesn’t have to be new, and can be something 97116 showed before
Any medium welcome, no specific orientation required

Must submit 3648 x 3648 pixel or larger high quality image to be considered for the cover contest
Deadline to submit: November 12, 2021

Three categories, are you in the right one?
  • Nifty (general audience art, odd as it may be) [You Are Here]
  • Naughty (the stuff we would have had in the back room, not suitable for prudes or kids)
  • Naive (kids and self-described amateurs only)
Professionally practicing and hobby artists may enter twice, one photo each in the Nifty and Naughty categories.
Naive artists (kids and self-described amateurs only) limited to one entry.

What are we selling?

Square calendar(s) that can accommodate any image orientation to include all entering artists. Also, 25-pack 5 x 7 greeting cards for each individual image. If your work isn't 5 x 7, we'll crop to an aesthetically pleasing portion. All sales will be pre-orders taken November 15-26. -This all assumes we get at least 12 usable images for at least one category 🙂

The commission will be as follows:
1.  All artists in the calendar share 50% of the profit after calendar printing costs, and we’ll keep 50% in the fund for next year’s big event.
2.  Greeting cards sales will be an 80/20 split, with artists receiving 80% after the cost of printing.

Tech Assistance

  • If you've uploaded to 97116ArtShow before, login above using the same email and password you received then and return to this tab to upload. If needed, email for a password reset.

Be patient! WordPress should send you an email after you upload your first image, it will contain your username and auto-generated password. Don't see it? Search your inbox for WordPress as it sometimes delivers to Spam and Junk. This login information will be yours for the duration of using the 97116 Art Show site, even if we call for artists in the future. (Assuming we stay with WordPress forever)

Once you're logged in, you will see a navigation tab that says, "YOUR IMAGES" from which you can edit your descriptions and titles, or delete the image in case of duplication, or desire to use a better quality image, etc. Again, be patient. Large images often take a while to show up in the gallery.

If you later see weird coding language, leave that part alone since Emily or I may have added a sales weblink. Submit any questions or correction requests outside of your control to 97116artshow@gmail.com.

UPLOAD / PLUGIN QUIRKS

  • If you've uploaded to 97116ArtShow before, login above using the same email and password you received then and return to this tab to upload. If needed, email for a password reset.

Then, with login tab still open to WordPress dashboard, return to this tab and choose UPLOAD PHOTO to submit.

Close tabs, or switch tabs to log out when finished

  • If you submit the form with a required field left blank, you may have to reattach the image and re-verify you're not a robot
  • Your image may not show up in the gallery for several minutes, please wait before attempting to upload again.
  • It could take several minutes for your confirmation email to arrive from wordpress@97116artshow.com, and it may filter to your SPAM
  • If you happen to have the exact same name as someone else, you may get a duplicate name error. Just add a -x (dash x) or middle initial. (not to your email, though!)
  • If you get a duplicate email address message, you already have a login and need to choose forgot password if you can't find the original
