As was the case last year, the Brauer Museum of Art prefers that all submissions be made in a digital file format. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis should the Brauer Museum be contacted PRIOR to the entry deadline. Digital image files should be titled with the following information: school code number, student name, title (example: “14, davis, self-portrait”). Digital image files must be saved at no larger than 6 inches in either dimension and at 300 dpi. They must be saved in a jpeg format. Please make sure that the information on the entry sheet you submit with your digital images matches the information on the individual student entry forms. Too often names and titles are different on these sheets. We want to make sure all information is clearly written and complete for the labels and the brochure. We look forward to seeing all of you and your students at the Secondary School Showcase opening on Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 6:00pm.
