Elta, I'm unable to replicate the sound issue. Please check your system's settings to make sure you don't have your sound low or on mute.

Still cannot hear you

Also, you may need to do an "Allow" on your Zoom settings to join the computer audio. Sometimes the fastest way to do that is to drop off and re-join the meeting.

Are these photo numbers somewhere besides the application?
Leah Sturgis
32:13
Photo size details I meant
Leslie Mounaime
36:51
Hi Leah, to clarify you are asking specifically about size limitations to the application that can be uploaded on Submittable
Leslie Mounaime
37:02
Correct?
Leslie Mounaime
38:48
Submittable has a file upload of 400mb per upload and 800 mb for complete submission. A standard high resolution 300 DPI image is about 8.6mb for context
Leslie Mounaime
39:15
So its highly unlikely you will exceed that but its something to keep in mind.
Leslie Mounaime
40:45
Videos do take larger sizes but for solo exhibitions we allow for 25 images/videos and I’ve had people submit with mostly video. It’s slow to upload but usually isn’t a size issue.
Rashad Ali Muhammad
42:09
Can you give examples of public interaction? Is that like having open studio hours? Or more like doing workshops?
Alyssa Ross
45:08
Rashad, public interaction looks different for different artists and what their media allows. Doing workshops is a good example, but engagement takes many forms.The building is open to the public and visitors are encouraged to interact with artists in their studios. This is meant to get an idea of how this dynamic would fit into your practice, based on how you've engaged the public in your past experiences.
Rashad Ali Muhammad
46:34
Gotcha gotcha , thanks Alyssa!
Leslie Mounaime
47:02
I recommend if you are concerned about size, to try uploading in advance to allow yourself time to troubleshoot or reach out with questions. Most cameras will default to 72 DPI which is fine for a virtual application but best practice is to set your camera at 300 DPI which will need to be done in the camera settings. In the application resources we have offered several options for best practice of taking pictures of your work
Leslie Mounaime
48:02
300 DPI is the minimum requirement for print images which is why that is set as the standard there.
Judy Heiser
48:27
how many participants on the call? interesting to understand poll. thank you
Leah Sturgis
48:35
If applying as a group does just one artist set up an account?
Leslie Mounaime
49:00
You will have the option to add collaborators
Alyssa Ross
49:10
Brett's about to answer your question in a few moments.
Alyssa Ross
49:32
There are 28 participants
Susanne Tabet
01:04:48
Should a brief artist bio be included in the Resume?
Cassandra Syfrett
01:05:04
What sizes in square feet do the studios range?
Leah Sturgis
01:05:31
If we apply as a group and one person doesn’t score high enough, do the other two qualify for pro temp?
Alyssa Ross
01:07:30
Studios open for consideration: https://torpedofactory.org/2022studios/
Cynthia Ray
01:12:24
What if art has a signature? It is readable.
Andrea Kleid
01:13:43
Are 300 DPI scans of images acceptable or should they be photos of physical artwork?
Dana Ragghianti
01:13:51
Would you repeat the unit of measure of the 300 dpi is roughly equivalent to the 8.6 or 8.7 (what was this unit of measure)? Thank you.
Leslie Mounaime
01:14:15
Megabytes
Dana Ragghianti
01:14:30
Thank you.
Cynthia Ray
01:15:07
Thank you
Alyssa Ross
01:15:16
Andrea, however you capture the image, photography or scanning is fine. Different artists like different methods.
Leslie Mounaime
01:15:20
Andrea, scans should be fine, you just want to make sure they are good quality.
Andrea Kleid
01:15:32
