Online contests do not have an entry fee. All work must be completed 80 percent en plein air during the specified contest period and NOT painted under the guidance of an instructor . Work is submitted into an album on this website.
Participants will be allowed one submission for any contest. Members vote for their favorite painting. The painting with the highest number of votes wins an award and is featured on the PAPNM homepage as well as in PAPNM Facebook postings.
To upload your painting's jpeg image, please follow the instructions here (printable version: 2017 Online Contest Image Upload Instructions V2.pdf )
First, prepare the image on your computer: 72 pixels per inch and at least 1920 pixels on longest side with file size on disk no larger than 5 mb.
The appearance of the image on the Album page is acknowledgement that it is in the system.
The image will be reviewed for sizing and quality. IF it is unacceptable the Coordinator reserves the right to remove it and will inform you that you should resubmit.
