Frequently Asked Questions







2013  FAQs for Annual Photography Exhibition


Jan. 4 to February 16, 2013



            Adults 18 years of age and older are eligible to enter.  Our Youth Division is for those 17 years and younger by the Open House date Jan. 4, 2013.  Youth Division has its own awards. There is no geographical limit in either division.

            No names on the front of the photo/mat – a tape will be applied over the name. Photos previously hung at ArtSpace for any reason will not be accepted.


Framing and Size Requirement

             United Inches = this is a way to measure your photograph.  Add one long edge with one short edge to equal the United Inches.  Therefore an 8 X 12 photograph equals 20 United Inches {UI}.  This applies to the visible photograph.

The minimum size of the visible photograph is 16 UI.  The maximum size of the frame is 62 UI.


Hanging Hardware

           D-Rings = These are round, semi-round, D-shaped or Triangle shaped metal attachments at the back of the frame to allow for hanging from a wall.  You cannot submit these frames with a wire attached between them.  They come apart and can let the photo fall from the wall.  Only screw eyes or mirror attachments that are attached to the wooden or metal frame itself will be allowed. No sawtooth hangers, one hole hangers or clip style frames will be accepted. Please use either glass or Plexiglas.

            Unstable frames will be excluded. If you have any questions, please ask at Registration before you submit your photos.  We will not have hardware to fix frames.



            Inclement weather:  If Registration has to be cancelled on one of the weekend days, arrangements will be made for Registration to continue until Monday Dec.10, 2012 from 9 am to 2 pm.  In extreme conditions, alternate dates will be announced on the website [and facebook page] or call the emergency phone numbers 419 -234-6642 or 419-224-4414 for more information. Please call before coming into town. Judging and final date of acceptance may also be adjusted. 


Notification of Exhibit results

            All notifications will go out to you by mail via the self-addressed stamped envelope 2-3 days after judging is complete.  Please do not call ArtSpace.



         We do not keep your e-mail address, nor do we give it to anyone else.  We only use it to notify you should we need to.


Category Notes


Special Effects

           Manipulating an image/s by adding and/or changing item/s, or creating imaginary effect/s which produce a new image will constitute a ‘Special Effect’. As an examplekeeping a tree green while all around is a black and white image should be entered into the ‘Special Effect’ Category. So you may submit a Black and White, Sepia, Infra-red, etc. image into any category as long as no other manipulation has produced an imaginary effect/new image.


Miscellaneous Category

            This category is for any subject not addressed in the other category definitions. You cannot submit a third subject if you have already entered two into another category.  EX: A third ‘Still Life’ will not be accepted if two ‘Still Life’ photos have been entered into the ‘Still Life’ category.  A single ‘Still Life’ will not be accepted into this category when it should be in the ‘Still Life’ category.


Claiming Photographs

            Entries not accepted can be claimed at ArtSpace/Lima during normal business hours. Entries that are accepted can be claimed at the end of the Exhibit starting February 19, 2013 during normal business hours.
