Acceptable Entry Formats
Entrants must ensure that interactive media is Windows XP compatible and is packaged so as to be viewed directly from the medium it is saved to, without special provisions, controllers, scripts, installations or downloads. No proprietary programs can be used.
Entrants must be ready to provide entries in a different medium or format if requested for judging or promotional purposes. Entries not submitted in the formats outlined above will be disqualified. All submission materials must be in English. Text descriptions should be no longer than 300 words total.
Still images (photographs, illustrations, informational graphics):
- Should be one of the following in non-compressed form: jpg, png, pdf, gif, bmp, tif
- No proprietary formats will be accepted (e.g. PowerPoint .ppt, Adobe Illustrator .ai, Photoshop .psd, Flash .fla, etc.).
- Still images must be print-ready.
- Images should be under 20MB in size.
Rules of Thumb:
- Generally, images should be between 1000 and 4000 pixels wide. If your image is exceptionally wide or tall, this rule of thumb doesn't always work. In these cases it might be best to calculate the area in pixels and make sure it's between 750,000 and 12 million pixels.
- If your artwork is in a vector format (.ai, .svg, .eps, etc.) please export as either a PDF or rasterize into a more widely available format (.jpg or .png).
- 150 DPI or better (or, if you don't know what DPI means, see first rule of thumb regarding pixels)
Interactive and Non-interactive Media:
- Video files must be in in either Windows Quicktime or AVI format.
- Videos must be less than 20MB in size
- An accompanying still image representing the video is required.
Entrants should provide up to two digital images of three-dimensional entries to include in the virtual gallery. The actual three-dimensional entries may be included in the physical exhibit prior to judging by delivering them to the following address by the deadline:
Ms. Karen DiMaina
Department of Engineering and Science Education
M9 Holtzendorff Hall
Clemson University, Clemson, SC 29634
- Science as Art organizers cannot be held responsible for loss or damage during shipping or delivery. Three-dimensional entries will be displayed as received, unless other instructions are provided. Size limitations apply; entries should be no larger or heavier than can be transported by one person. Entrants will be responsible for transporting entries that exceed these limits. Please submit an inquiry through our contact form if an entry exceeds reasonable weight and/or size limits.
- Prints and original works will be moved from the Meet the Artist Reception venue to the exhibit in the Cooper Library at Clemson University, and from the exhibit to Holtzendorff Hall at the conclusion of the exhibit, by the event organizers. Entrants may choose to transport their own works providing that they make a prior written agreement with the organizers to do so.
- Three-dimensional entries must be picked up by entrants by the pick-up deadline. Entries not picked up by the pick-up deadline become the property of Clemson University, unless a prior written agreement has been made with the event organizers.
