Call for Eastern Repousse Images

My latest DVD, Metal Tehcniques of Bronze Age Masters: Eastern Repousse will be released this fall, and I'm looking for images of Eastern repousse work to include in the gallery section.

If you have taken one of my repousse classes or do this specific style of repousse, you are encouraged to submit images. The artwork can be all Eastern repousse or combined with other techniques and in any non ferrous metal (silver, gold, copper, argentium, brass, mokume gane, bi-metal, etc.)

Artwork will be selected on the basis of technique, artistry, uniqueness, and the quality of the photographic image of the work. Please adhere to the image requirements and photography hints below.

There is no entry fee. Artists, whose work(s) are accepted, will be given full credit with their images and will be given one free copy of the DVD when it becomes available.

Deadline to submit images: August 10, 2009
Notification of acceptance: October 1, 2009

Email images to victoria@victorialansford.com with no more than 2 images in each email.
Please include "artwork #1" (or #2 or #3) in the subject line of the email.

Include your name as you would like it listed, the title of the piece, the materials used, and the height, width, and depth of the piece in inches, and the photographer (if not the artist) with each artwork sent

Limit 3 repousse works of art for a total of 6 images: (1 full image of each artwork + 1 optional detail image of each artwork) Artwork that is part of a set, such as a necklace and earrings, or necklace and bracelet, may be photographed together and counted as one work of art.

Image requirements: digital images at least 8" x 10" at 300dpi in .jpg or .tff format

Please do not crop the images too closely. All images will be fitted into the appropriate resolution for television and may require more background than you would ordinarily leave for print or web use.

Work should be shot on a smooth, solid, contrasting background. Black or other dark foam core is encouraged. (Medium gray gets really boring on a big screen.) Artwork photographed on professional models will be considered, but please include a detail shot as well.

If you are photographing your own work, hints and tips may be found at
