GENERAL SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

The event is an excellent opportunity for the photographers who want to show their work in an unique context. We accept series of images accompanied by audio files or multimedia files. Follow the instructions here and send your work to Slideluck London, ON. 

– Slideluck shows generally consist of 20-25 artists, with each artist featuring up to five minutes of original work.

– In most cases, this is a slideshow of between 15 to 40 images. We recommend 20 – 30 images.

– Every image must be at least 1024×768 pixels. We strongly recommend that you submit images that are 1080 pixels in height for maintaining the highest standards of quality. The width will be determined by the aspect ratio of your images.

– Every slideshow is set to music or an audio recording that the artist has selected. You will need to upload a music file during the submissions process. On average, each slideshow image will be projected for four seconds, so check that your audio track is longer than that time period multiplied by the number of submission slides (for example, a slideshow containing 30 slides would last approximately 120 seconds or two minutes – four times thirty equals 120). In some instances, the audio requirement may be waived or altered on specific calls for specific events. Please double check the details of the call! For copyright purposes, all audio included in submissions must be open-sourced.  You can search for open-sourced music through resources such as the Free Music Archive or Creative Commons. Submissions containing copyrighted music may be subject to change by the Slideluck Team. Please contact us at submissions@slideluck.com with direct questions.

– We generally accept all types of submissions, as long as the work can be represented fairly in a slideshow format. Please adhere to the individual theme or other requirements detailed in the individual call for entries from the particular city and event you are submitting to. Details about all our open calls can be found HERE.

– Along with your images, you will need to supply three additional slides- one with your name and the title of the project (if applicable), a music credit slide, and a slide with your contact info or representation.

– Pre-produced multimedia submissions are also welcome, as long as they fit within our guidelines and format.
