Top 5 reasons why artists are disqualified from a call




Time after time, you submit to so many artist calls, and time after time, you are rejected. We are going to give you a secret with the top five reasons why artists are disqualified.

5. Ego.  You are an established artist and now you do not submit your best work. You assume because of your name that the jurors will just accept whatever you choose to submit. 

4. Quality of images. Do not submit images that are shot with an iPad, iPhone or by you if you are not a professional photographer. Hire someone who specializes in photography that will show the quality of your art.

3. Poorly written artist statements and/or CVs. Often times the imagery is beautiful but either your CVs are not up to date or your artist statement does not reflect the body of work. Hire someone who specializes in this area.

2. Missed the deadline. You must meet the deadline. Period. If the coordinators extend the deadline or you were invited to submit after the deadline, that is different.  Otherwise, no questions asked. 

1. You do not follow directions. This by far is the number one reason why artists are not selected for calls for exhibition. Read the entire call before anxiously submitting your work. This makes the difference. You take the risk of being disqualified because you might not have read one line that made the difference between you being in an exhibition or not. Do not take the risk of losing your fee because you assume you did the call correctly but chose not to read the directions. Take your time.

      bismillahirrahamaninrahim... senang sekali saya bisa menulis
      dan berbagi kepada teman2 melalui tempat ini,
      sebelumnya dulu saya adalah seorang pengusaha dibidang property rumah tangga
      dan mencapai kesuksesan yang luar biasa, mobil rumah dan fasilitas lain sudah saya miliki,
      namun namanya cobaan saya sangat percaya kepada semua orang,
      hingga suaatu saat saya ditipu dengan teman saya sendiri dan membawa semua yang saya punya,
      akhirnya saya menanggung hutang ke pelanggan-pelanggan saya totalnya 470 juta dan di bank totalnya 600 juta ,
      saya sudah stress dan hampir bunuh diri anak saya 3 orang masih sekolah di smp / sma dan juga anak sememtarah kuliah,tapi suami saya pergi entah kemana dan meninggalkan saya dan anaka-naknya ditengah tagihan hutang yang menumpuk,
      demi makan sehari hari saya terpaksa jual nasi bungkus keliling dan kue,
      ditengah himpitan ekonomi seperti ini saya bertemu dengan seorang teman
      dan bercerita kepadanya, alhamdulilah beliau memberikan saran kepada saya.
      dulu katanya dia juga seperti saya setelah bergabung dengan KH. Ahmad Danan hidupnya kembali sukses,
      awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama satu minggu saya berpikir
      dan melihat langsung hasilnya, `
      saya akhirnya bergabung dan mengunjung websiteNya http://pondok-allaqsha.logdown.com Call/Wa. 62822-9128-6336
      semua petunjuk K.H. Ahmad Danan saya ikuti dan hanya 1 hari astagfirullahallazim,
      alhamdulilah demi allah dan anak saya,
      akhirnya 5m yang saya minta benar benar ada di tangan saya,
      semua utang saya lunas dan sisanya buat modal usaha,
      kini saya kembali sukses terimaksih Kh. Ahmad Danan saya tidak akan melupakan jasa aki.
