This show is open to all photographers residing in northern California, north of Sacramento -- and southern Oregon, south of Medford. All forms of photographic expression are encouraged: film and digital capture, both traditional and digital darkroom, along with photo manipulation. All entries must be the entrant’s original work, i.e. the capture of the image as well as dark room and digital processing. This does not preclude the use of professional labs for printing, resizing, and film development. Images previously accepted into a NVAL Juried Photography Show are not eligible.

Our purpose is to professionally exhibit your unique artwork in our gallery for patrons to view, appreciate and purchase. Approximately 70 images will be exhibited at our spacious Carter House Gallery and also on the NVAL website. The gallery is located in
Caldwell Park, 48 Quartz Hill Road, Redding, CA 96003.

North Valley Art League is a non-profit, all volunteer organization. Your entry fees cover the prize money and other expenses of running the photography show. Any remaining monies help fund the operating expenses of the NVAL Carter House Gallery so that we can continue our goal of furthering the visual arts in the Northern California region.

• $30 to enter three entries
• $8 for each additional entry
• No limit on the number of submittals per entrant
• Images will be juried in electronic format as submitted, with final jurying for awards based on the framed prints presented for the Carter House Gallery exhibit.

ACCEPTANCE NOTICE: Everyone who enters will receive an email notification regarding acceptance or non-acceptance by November 20, 2013. Detailed instructions for delivery, shipping, and artwork identification will be detailed in the acceptance notice.
EXHIBIT PRINTS: All accepted images submitted for exhibition must be printed and framed either professionally or in a professional manner. Simple dark framing with white or off-white matting is recommended. Works must be delivered ready to hang. Maximum frame dimension is 40” and maximum weight is 12 pounds. NVAL hangs with cable hooks, so please use only frame hangers, D-rings or split rings for your hanging hardware.
If framed work does not substantially meet the appearance of the JPEG entry, or if the print quality, matting or framing are not suitable quality for gallery presentation, the NVAL may ask the artist to replace whichever element is not suitable. If the artist is unwilling to meet these standards, the NVAL reserves the right to replace the entry with another work selected by the juror.
SALE OF ARTWORK: There will be a 20 percent commission charged by the gallery on any piece that is sold. California sales tax will be collected.
COPYRIGHT: Entrants retain copyright of all their submitted images, subject to the NVAL Use Rights listed below.
USE RIGHTS: By submission for jurying, artists whose submissions are chosen for the exhibition grant the North Valley Art League the right to use their images for the purpose of marketing the exhibition, marketing the North Valley Art League’s programs and subsequent display on the NVAL website gallery exhibits. Artists grant the use of their image(s) as stated without further contact or compensation from NVAL. Artist’s recognition is provided with any use.
NVAL/GALLERY LIABILITY and INSURANCE: Artists are solely responsible for the cost, care, protection, and insurance of their work during shipment to and from the Carter House Gallery. For exhibited work, the North Valley Art League’s responsibility and liability for any damage or loss for whatever reason will be limited to the cost of printing and framing of the particular piece. Every care will be taken to secure the safety of all exhibited works of art.
• JPEG format
• File size no larger than 2 MB
• SRGB color space is recommended for the most accurate web version of your images.
• Ideally the longest side should be 1,280 pixels or GREATER. If your image is LESS than 800 pixels on the longest side, you may want to resize it using the original, larger file. If you do not have the original larger file, do not try to upsize your image. You are better off submitting an image as small as 600 pixels on the longest side than to distort the quality of the image by trying to increase the pixel dimension.
Please do not use your name in the title or filename. Make sure that your file name (not the title) does not include special characters: ‘ “ ; : { } \ / or any of the characters found above the numbers (@, #, *, etc.) except the underscore and dash.
• Our online entry service has recently launched a new enhanced version. Returning entrants will need to create a new account, if they have not already done so for another organization using the same service. With this new version entrants will only need one account for all competitions/organizations using the service.
• Once you set up your account, you will be asked to select the 2014 Regional Juried Photography Show. Then use your credit card to pay the entry fee and proceed to enter your images.
• To view your images at full size double click on the thumbnail.
• You may edit your entries or add additional images at any time up until the entry deadline.
