If you are planning on hanging prints at the PCP please note the following :

*  All prints must be framed with the following exceptions: canvas on stretcher boards with professionally finished edges, acrylic bonded prints, and prints on rigid metal surfaces.

*  All prints must have hanging wires attached to back. Single point hanging brackets will not be accepted.

*  All prints and frames must be clean and be professional in appearance.

*  We reserve the right to reject any print because of image quality, framing quality, or content.

*   Prints over 22 x 28 must be pre-approved to ensure adequate room for other participants.

The Pennsylvania Center for Photography is NOT responsible for any loss of any kind for any reason to photographs, frames, and/or any type of equipment brought into the Center. We strongly advise that each artist insurance his or her6 own work and equipment.

Matted and Unmatted Prints

*   All unframed photographs will be placed in a “bin” with other photographs.

Digital Submission Guidelines

*    All digital submission must be saved as JPG files using sRGB as the color space option. No TIF or PSD files will be accepted.

*    All digital submissions should be saved at 2000px on the longest side. 

*    Digital signatures are not required but a good idea so people will know whose picture it is. They should be placed in the lower right corner.

*    Images with centrally placed watermarks will be rejected.

Following the simple guidelines above is necessary to ensure a quality digital presentation. Images that do not conform to these standards will be rejected. This is not to be cold and heartless, but when dealing with group shows we simply don’t have time to fix other people’s mistakes.
