FIXING JURY IMAGES

JURY SLIDE PHOTOGRAPHY

IMPROVE YOUR JURY IMAGES - SERVICES AND PRICING

As artists, we feel that the most important part of jurying is about the images and how they look to the jury, not the actual application process. That holds true for submitting slides or digital images. But what was once taken for granted (35mm slide projection) is now an unknown to thousands of artists who are required to apply to art shows with digital images of their work. I've tried to become a resource for the artists who are attempting to understand how to fit into the art show system which has changed from the system that's supported them through their artistic careers. Besides working on images for over 3000 artists I consult with, and am exclusively recommended by both ZAPP and Juried Art Services, the two established digital jury systems.
