Method to the Madness

Hey, just wondering about the entry methods people are using to enter these contests; i.e. slides, photos, color copies etc. What are some of the better, cheaper, higher quality ways to accomplish this? I really want to enter that CMYK contest but not sure how I'm going to send my work given the limited amount of time. By the way, this is Rick Muschiana, and I'm now a part of the Illustrationado Ultimado Blog Force. Look out world!

If you can scan your work and get it to print in a good way at school, I think those would be high quality enough...otherwise, you may try kinkos..which isnt all that cheap. I think you can get transparencies done at copymax within office max.But Im not sure. These are some things to look into. Also, if you want to meet the March 10 deadline, that is pretty intense, but there is a student competition in every issue, so if you pick up the more recent issue...due out any time now, there will m=be a more managable timeline.

hmm...I was under the impression from reading the form (it's the pink and turquoise one that talks about #34: summer 2006 right?) that it might be like a seasonal type thing. But if it's every issue than that's cool.

One more thing Candace; those pieces on your personal blog are really nice, are those scanned at the school??

Yeah, I scan at school. Usually the smaller scanner on the 7th floor works better. The printouts are "iffy" on the color printer though. It never prints cobalt blue well.

CMYK comes out quarterly, so you can enter in 3 months.

You can print on the 4th floor for (sometimes) better quality prints, especially if you have some higher quality paper to feed the printer, or if you print it yourself at Kinko's it costs about $3/print.
