Absolute Minimum

7.5 in x 2.75 in at 300 ppi
31.25 in x 11.46 in at 72 ppi
2250 pix x 825 pix at 300 ppi

450 pix x 450 pix at 300 ppi
1875 x 1875 pix at 72 ppi

These may be used on the Newsletter, Facebook page website, postcards and correspondence.  So, keeping the same ratios, if they could be large enough in original format and large enough computer files for printing and the web it would be helpful.  We can always size them down, but not up.

We will accept both drawn and digital works for this.
Please make digital (.jpg, .psd, I can open most file types) submissions of your work to GKCAAemail@gmail.com prior to the October meeting, originals/prints are to be submitted at the October meeting.  Remember, these need to look good in digital format (please don't submit things on buckled paper, etc, it will show, photographing/scanning and putting something online is the quickest way to see its faults).  For small pieces, 8x10 or smaller I find scanning at 300 ppi works best.  Please label your email with a subject line of GKCAA logo contest so I can spot them easily.  If you absolutely can not get your work photographed or scanned, let us know, we can try to work something out prior to the October meeting. 

All submissions will be available for viewing on the Website, Facebook page, Newsletter. Voting will begin at the October meeting, final votes will be taken October 31st,  email online votes to GKCAAemail@gmail.com (if you use submit on the website it goes there).  Facebook shows who voted for what item with their voting system, so by emailing it will keep things private.  You may message the group page as well.  The winner will be announced at the November meeting, in the Newsletter, and online.  One vote per member.

Greater Kansas City Art Association

The Greater Kansas City Art Association is a non-profit organization that has actively promoted the appreciation of visual arts in the Kansas City area by providing art exhibits and services to the public. It was founded in 1956 by a group of  local artists with the idea of bringing together as many of those local artists as possible to promote an exchange of thoughts and techniques and to be able to approach the public as a unified group of professionals. 
     The association meets every second Monday of the month at The Old Mission Church, 5519 State Park Road, (SE Corner Shawnee Mission Parkway One Block East of Mission Road) Fairway, Kansas 66205. Meetings are informative and fun. We usually have a guest speaker who lectures with a slide presentation or demonstration.  There are fine artists in the Association who work in all media such as watercolor, oil, acrylic, colored pencil, pastel, inks, mixed media, sculpture, and more. Many of the members are known nationally and compete in national shows throughout the country winning awards while doing so.
     GKCAA wants to share with the public the enjoyment and excitement of the visual arts in this region. The services and activities of GKCAA are available to all persons regardless of race, color, creed, ethnic background or religious affiliation.
