Tips for images of your artworks

The images you submit to enter the Stanthorpe Art Prize are a crucial part of your application. Our judges will shortlist for the exhibition based on the images you submit alone. This means that you should submit the best possible images of your artwork to have the best chance of being selected.

2D artworks should have two images submitted – one that shows the whole of the work, and one showing a section or detail of the work so that the judges can see your technique.

3D artworks should have three images submitted – one showing the work from the front, one from the back or side, and one close up or detail so that the judges can see your technique.

2D Artwork – first image showing entire artwork
2D Artwork – Second image showing detail of part of the work
3D Artwork – first image showing entire artwork
3D Artwork – second image showing entire artwork from a different angle
Third image showing detail of part of the 3D work

Note: the images above are just to demonstrate the types of images you need for 2D or 3D artworks. These ones don’t have the best lighting.

We hope this helps you with preparing your artwork for submission.
