Entry Guidelines for Gallery Submissions
The Ultimate Journal, by Suzanne J. E. Tourtillott

* Entries must be postmarked no later than July 24, 2000.

* If you, as the book artist, submit slides of a journal with
artwork/writing made by another person, we will send a release form to you,
and their contribution will be acknowledged within the book.

* All visuals must be of work that is original in design. Recent work is

* A maximum of three entries per artist is allowed. An "entry" may consist
of no more than two visuals (an overall shot and a detail shot of the
piece, for example.) All three entries must be mailed in the same packet.

* Each visual must be clearly labeled (please see the Gallery Entry Form &
Artist's Agreement for details).

* Each visual must be accompanied by a copy of the Gallery Entry Form &
Artist's Agreement.

* Artists whose work is selected for the book will receive full
acknowledgment within the book, a complimentary copy of the book, and
discounts on the purchase of books. Lark Books will use the selected images
only in this book. Artists retain all copyrights to their work.

Image Specs

* Submit only the highest-quality color transparencies (the larger, the
better), or 35 mm slides. Originals (or "masters") are always preferable,
but duplicates are acceptable. (Note that we will be keeping selected
visuals for several months.)
* Do not send snapshots, instant prints, over- or under-exposed visuals, or
color-print negatives. We cannot accept them.
* Do not crop visuals with tape or scissors.
* All visuals must be clean, sharp images with good contrast. Avoid sending
visuals shot at awkward angles or with harsh shadows.
* Clear, simple backgrounds are always preferable to ones that are
distracting or confusing.
