How to Sign Up for the Portfolio Project
- Register to the NVPS Gallery and set your Gallery “Username” and “Password”. Register here: http://nvps.org/gallery/ by clicking on the word “register” (upper right-hand corner). Remember your username and password. You can also navigate to the Gallery on the NVPS homepage under “All Things NVPS”. (Note: If you are already a registered gallery user then skip to step 2.)
- Send your name, email address and gallery username (not your password) to firstname.lastname@example.org and request Portfolio Project participation.
- You will receive an email confirming creation of your personal Portfolio Project album at which point you will be able to upload pictures as well as view and comment on other member’s pictures.
NOTE: YOUR PORTFOLIO PROJECT ALBUM CAN ONLY BE ACCESSED (adding, deleting or editing images) BY PARTICIPANTS DURING THE CLUB YEAR.
Maximum Image Size and File Naming Convention
- Image Size – Sizes are the same as for digital competition. That is, no larger than 1400 x 1050 pixels (WxH) for horizontal images and no taller than 1050 pixels for vertical images.
- Please follow this convention for naming your image filenames: use the “first last name_image number from 01 to total”. Example: ScottMusson_01.jpg, ScottMusson_02.jpg, etc. (Your Artist Statement should be slide #1).
