5. There is no restriction on age of print or when the original exposure was made, however, images may not have been shown in any previous SPS show

6. This is a public exhibition in a commercial event space; while there are no specific restrictions on images, we ask that only“family friendly” images be submitted (“No Nudes”)

7. This is a juried show; not all images submitted may be included in the show; all decisions of the juror and the SPS Executive Committee will be final. A maximum of two (2) images per member may be included in the show.

Image Preparation:
1. All varieties of photographic papers, including fine art papers and canvas gallery wrap, are acceptable

2. The minimum size of the print, not including matting and framing, is 320 square inches, calculated by multiplying the height of the print by the width of the print
Height of 16" X Width of 20" = 320 square inches
Height of 18" X Width of 18" = 324 square inches
Height of 12" X Width of 30" = 360 square inches

3. The maximum outside framed dimension on any side of completed work may not exceed 48". Note that frames are often specified by their internal dimensions; however, the maximum size for framed images in this show is measured against outside dimensions of the frame.

4. Except for gallery wrap canvas prints, all images must be framed, in a black frame (minimum of 1 inch width) under glass. Images must be matted with white, off-white or cream colored mats, with a minimum width of 2 ½ inches.

5. Mats may have a black core. Mat core colors other than black are NOT acceptable. Multiple mats, such as double- or triple-mats, are acceptable but must be white, off white, or cream colored. An accent mat under the top mat is acceptable. If used, an accent mat must be black (only black) and must not exceed 1/4" in width.

6. Images must have eye hooks or flat hooks (“D-rings”) of at least 3/8" on each side of the back of the frame. Images at Tudor Square will be hung on vertical wires to the hooks rather than a hanging wire on the frame; best results are achieved with hooks approximately 4" down from the top of the frame.Ready to hang images must be delivered to Tudor Square between 8am and noon, Saturday September 13.

7. Each framed or stretched canvas photo must have the following information on the back:
• Photographer’s name and contact information (phone # and email address)
• image title
• selling price

8. Images must be picked up at Tudor Square between 10am and 4pm on Sunday, November 9.

Members can offer their images for sale. Tudor Square (or their agent) will process sales transactions and take a 30% commission. Purchased images must remain in the show until November 9.
