Prints Due for January 2013 Salon

Print Salon Topic: “Thought” – An image that brings to mind another similar situation. Imagining what it would be like to be personally part of the image. An idea or image produced by thinking or suddenly occurring in the mind.

Due Date: January 8, 2013

Prints must be submitted to the Edina Art Center (EAC) CCC drop off area by 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, the week prior to the Salon.

How to Prepare Your Prints for Salon:

  • All prints shall be the results of an initial exposure by the member. All other processing may be commercially done, if desired.
  • Matting is encouraged but not required. No frames are allowed.
  • A TITLE, CATEGORY (Topic or Open), member’s NUMBER, and DIVISION entered (Monochrome or Color) must appear on the back top left side of the matte board. Entries with a member’s name will be disqualified.
  • Prints may be entered in either of the Topic or Open divisions but to a maximum of three prints TOTAL per member per salon.
  • Prints shall be no smaller than 15 square inches (3″ x 5″) and no larger than 320 square inches (16″ x 20″). Prints must be mounted on matte board no smaller than 80 square inches (8″ x 10″) and no larger than 320 square inches (16″ x 20″).

The following four pieces of information are required for entry and should appear in the top left corner on the back side of the matte board:

  1. NUMBER: your CCC Member Number (not your name). This number can be found on your Membership Card.
  2. TITLE: a descriptive title for the photograph
  3. TOPIC: indicating a Topic category entry. OPEN: indicating an Open category entry.

Additional Notes:

  • Mounting your print on still board or foam board is recommended. You can use spray adhesive, double-coated tape, Scotch Mounting Adhesive or heat mounting.
  • Titles are for identification – for yourself, and for those who keep club records. Judges don’t always pay much attention to them. Use description instead of commentary (e.g. “Mike on a Bike” instead of “Will He Make It”). Calling a photograph “Untitled” risks confusion in club records and later, in your own memory.
  • If you are able, please also send a digital copy of your print (conforming to digital salon rules) to If your image is awarded an acceptance during judging, it will be displayed on the Crosstown website and used in the end-of-year presentation.

The Print Committee will interpret and apply these rules at each club salon and have the right to reject any entry not properly presented or labeled.
