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.
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.
Here are some other online guides to help you take the best photos of your artwork that you can:
