Survival Guide Info

We hope that the "Member Resources" section will grow to include much of interest to our members. We encourage our members to share their resources that may benefit other artists. Whenever you have a good resource, please contact us. We hope to have an editor for this section, maybe even one for each of the four subsections. To volunteer go to our contact page. For now, please contribute through the "TipsBoards" in each section. Read about the sections below to see where your tip would fit best! Thanks.

What with all the talk of digital jurying, we have a "Digital Resources" page where we will be gathering information for the new digital jurying processes. NAIA and Larry Berman and/or Randall Smith are also conducting seminars on "Preparing Your Images for ZAPPlication? and other Digital Jury Systems". There are also links to Larry Berman's tutorials on preparing images for the ZAPPlication online application process and preparing digital images for conversion to slides.
