Submitting Via Email:

Please attach a .doc or PDF with the following information: Name, name of your art piece, address, and phone number, the reason you entered your art, your relationship to A.S, and a description of your art.
Original Art Work:
By submitting art to us, you are acknowledging that your art is original and created by yourself. Although art can be inspired by many sources, it is imperative that your artwork is original and not copied from another source.
Ownership of Your Art:
By submitting to this calendar, you are agreeing the non-profit Walk AS One has assumed the rights of your work and can use it in the 2018 calendar and for other promotional avenues. You will receive credit in the calendar for your work.
Format of work:
All images must be submitted in digital format. Submit a non-returnable representation of your work. Take a digital photo or scan your art via a copier or scanner.
Return of Images:
Walk AS One reserves the right to destroy all images submitted on digital media upon distribution of the year 2018 calendars and other products.
Quality of images:
Submit high quality images. File resolution should be 300dpi to reproduce well in the printing world.
What does that mean? Here are some examples of pixel dimensions & file sizes and how they translate to an 8×10 print (the size of the calendar page).
– Best Quality: File size 19MB (19,000KB) // Pixel dimensions: approx 7,300 x 5414. Images this size are usually taken from cameras with 10 megapixels & higher resolution. It’s more than we need to reproduce well. Bigger is better!
– Good: File size 1MG-3MB, 1,000-3,000KB) // Pixel dimensions: approx 2000 x 1500. Images this size will reproduce at 8×10 with good quality detail. Usually around 2 megapixels.
– Barely Acceptable: File size 600KB // Pixel dimensions: approx 1014 x 768. Images this size will show pixilation (the photo will have a “blocky” look especially when viewed up close. Depending on the subject matter, it may be very noticeable.) Photos submitted at this size are borderline, and many of them will not reproduce well. (Generally, these photos are either taken from a social media program such as Facebook or Instagram, or taken from a phone on a low resolution setting.) Sending a photo as a text message drastically reduces the resolution. These files are almost always too small to print.
