Preparing Your Digital Files

For our exhibits


In the old days of preparing images for entering a juried art show, you had to have a 35mm camera and slide film! It was a tedious job. However, those days are gone.

Today it’s all about digital entries and uploading files. You save the tasks of developing film, postage and mailing, but it has it’s own quirks.

In this video tutorial you’ll be guided on how to edit your digital photos, and get them ready for show entry.

More information can be found on our Juried Show Entry page. See the image specifications tab.

A Little Education

When the American Plains Artists first went to a National Juried Show format in 1999, it took some time to educate our members about what subjects relate to the Great Plains or for that matter just what are the American Plains? Sometimes it was comical to see a seascape submitted for entry. We knew we had some work to do on our part to get the message across.

So what states comprise the American Plains? Well, here’s a map!

But, maybe you would like to know a little more about the Land, Life, People and Wildlife of the plains? We’ve got you covered in our new Education and Inspiration page! We know you’ll enjoy exploring the links.

We also have a compilation video showing a little more about the Plains and our organization’s activities. Enjoy the 5½ minute video below. It’s also included on our Education page.
