ELIGIBILITY

This is a national/international competition open to all artists 21 years of age and over.  Artwork that has been exhibited at the BFAC Juried Show in the past is not eligible to be entered into this year’s Juried Show.  Original artwork must not be older than 3 years, except for bronze sculptures.


FORMAT

Original 2 and 3-dimensional art only.  No photography, prints, or computer-generated artwork will be accepted.


SIZE

Boundary measurement of framed art shall not exceed 200 inches.  Boundary measurement is determined by adding the length and width measurements together and multiplying by 2.  Round any measurements up to the next whole number.
For example:  24″ x 30″ framed painting would equal a 108-inch boundary (24 + 30 = 54 x 2= 108)

Oil, watercolor, scratchboard, acrylic, gouache, alkyd, tempera, mixed media, pastel, pencil, pen and ink, aquatint, fiber, bronze, wood, glass and ceramic will be accepted.  If you have a question regarding your media, please email us.

NO EMAILED ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.


DIGITAL IMAGE SUBMISSION

Using our online form, submit one .jpg/.jpeg image that is either 5 megabytes in file size or 8 megapixels in resolution (image needs to meet only one of those two requirements).  This requirement will allow your artwork to be large enough to appear clearly in our catalog.  No images with frames showing will be accepted.
