Prints Due for October 2014 Salon

Print Salon Topic: “Street Photography”

Due Date: October 7, 2014

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.
  • 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 3″ x 5″ and no larger than 16″ x 20″. Prints must be mounted on white matte board or foam core no smaller than 8″ x 10″ and no larger than 16″ x 20″. All prints must be mounted on a substrate of your choice but do not need to be matted. Judges will assign no extra value for a matted print. To matte or not is up to the maker. There will be no penalty for matting or not matting.

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 matte board or foam core is required.
  • 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.
