Word & Image Book FAQ
Q Do I have to submit my image/word entry when I pay?
A No. Pay for your entry now to reserve your page(s).
Then you can put in your entry before March 15. The reason to get your image in early ( even in low resolution) is so someone may want to pair with your piece.
Q I want to enter now to reserve my spot but my image / word entry is not ready. What should I put in the upload image section?
A Put FirstName-TBE1, up to max TBE3
For image medium put TBE1, etc
Q How can I pay?
A You can pay online via PayPal at the bottom of the submission page OR by mailing a cheque payable to Sooke Community Arts Council C/O
3001 Manzer Rd
Sooke BC V9Z-0C9
Q Will I get a refund if I am not chosen for the book?
A If you are not chosen, you get a full refund.
If you do not get your entry in by Mar15 you forfeit the entry and do not get a refund.
Q Why is the image minimum 10 inches?
A We need it at min 10 inches at a resolution of 300 dpi for good printing.
If you have a choice make the original image in a ratio of 8/10.
That is 8×10, 16X24, 24×36 etc.
The reason for this is we will be marketing the books as images suitable for matting and framing. Most stock mats that will fit are 8×10.
Other ratio images will also be accepted. Also round, rectangle and any shape!
Q Does this have to be something I created recently?
A No. You may have done it at any time.
Q Do I have to have it available for sale?
A No. It would be nice if you have it for sale at our shows, but is not required.
