Upcoming Member Exhibition at New England School of Photography (NESOP)

Exhibition Dates: early November 2018 - January 2019
Opening Reception: TBD
Where: NESOP in Waltham, Red Brick Gallery (more details to come)

The BCC will hold an exhibit at NESOP inaugurating their new Red Brick Gallery space — an intimate, casual gallery space at the school in which they will host small, rotating exhibitions.

The exhibition theme is — "Light and Shadow."
The exhibition will display only 15 images — 8 horizontal and 7 vertical. The number and orientation of images is limited by the space and framing requirements set forth from NESOP.

EXHIBITION GUIDELINES/FAQ

How many images can I submit?
You may submit up to 4 .JPG images related to the "Light and Shadow" theme. These images are for the selection process only. From these images, the Exhibition Committee will select the final 15 images — 8 horizontal and 7 vertical. Therefore, please consider submitting both horizontal and vertical images. We are limited in the number and orientation of images by NESOP: gallery space and who will be supplying the frames for uniformity.

Members who have their image(s) selected are then responsible for "printing" their image to meet the print specifications and print delivery deadline indicated below.

Submission Deadline: Sunday, October 7, 11:30 pm

THE LINKS TO SUBMIT AND UPLOAD YOUR IMAGES ARE AT THE END OF THIS PAGE.

***These images are for selection only — do not upload full size images. Please size your uploaded images to meet BCC competition file submissions: ie. .JPGs sized up to 1400px x 1050 px.***

When will I find out if my image is selected?
The BCC will notify you by Thursday, October 11 whether or not your image is selected. Images selected will be based on how well the image fits the exhibition theme "Light and Shadow," and on the need for horizontal and vertical images.

What is the Submission 2-Step Process?
STEP 1: COMPLETE SUBMISSION FORM
GO TO SUBMISSION FORM: https://goo.gl/forms/yZLhKqgZtTTBm3OD2


STEP 2: UPLOAD YOUR IMAGES (See process description below)
GO TO SUBMIT/UPLOAD YOUR IMAGES: /MyAccount/GalleryEdit.aspx?GalleryId=d9a7ff2b-b707-4522-b84f-c645a84345f7#no-back-button

When you complete the Submission Form, you will receive a confirmation email. This email will contain a link to "edit" your submission form entries.

PROCESS FOR HOW TO UPLOAD YOUR IMAGES TO THE GALLERY
Once you click the link (above) to submit your images, the gallery page displays.

You now have TWO CHOICES of buttons to use:
— Upload Images into this Gallery
— Add Images from my Image Library

Read the following description of each button to determine which button(s) you need to use. You may have to use both upload processes depending on the images you want to upload.

I. Upload Images into this Gallery
Use this button IF the image(s) you want to upload has NEVER been uploaded for a club competition since the start of using this new club web site (since ~ Jan 2015) —
ie .the images do not already exist in your Image Library).

  1. When you use this button, the upload process is similar to the process for uploading your images to a competition.
  2. During the image “Select” process, you can indicate multiple images to be uploaded with a single upload (similar to the upload process for club competitions).
  3. If the system displays a message indicating the image already exists in your Image Library, then stop this upload process and use the other upload process — 'Add Images from my Image Library.'

II. Add Images from my Image Library
Use this button IF the image(s) .JPG you want to upload HAS been used in a club competition since the start of using this new club web site (since ~ Jan 2015) — ie. the images already exist in your Image Library.

  1. When you use this button, and the upload page displays, simply scroll to the bottom of the screen and select “DISPLAY ALL IMAGES.”
  2. Now all the images in your Image Library are displayed. If needed, scroll to the bottom of the page and set the images to display at 50 — so you can see more of your images on the page.
  3. Add a check mark next to the image(s) you want to upload to the gallery — you can add check marks to images on multiple pages.
  4. When all the images you want to upload are checked, press the button: ‘FINISHED MARKING SELECTED IMAGES.’
  5. The gallery page will then display with your uploaded image(s).
  6. No need to select any other buttons to save your images to the Gallery.
