Posters and Pamphlets Salon
Exhibition of paper media (posters, pamphlets, postcards, brochures, etc.) related to caves or caving.
DESCRIPTION: The Posters and Pamphlets Salon is a judged exhibition of paper media (posters, pamphlets, postcards, brochures, etc.) related to caves or caving. All designs must be representative of a caving-related or karst-related organization (such as a caving club, grotto, section, or conservancy) or of a caving-related or karst-related event (such as a caving club event, grotto event, section gathering, meeting, conference, or convention), or have a caving theme. The Salon Chair will decide if a proposed entry fits the description of a paper media and is accepted for judging. Items that will be accepted in the Posters and Pamphlets category include posters, postcards, brochures and other paper media. Items that the Salon Chair determines to not meet the criteria for this category will not be judged, but may be accepted for display in a nearby area. If in doubt, please contact the Salon Chair in advance to discuss your proposed entry. The art work submitted must be entirely that of the artist, or, if a collaborative effort, permission must be received from all artists and/or organizations involved.
HOW TO SUBMIT ENTRIES:All entries must be mailed to Blake Jordan (6109 Concordia Road NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111, USA) on or before, May 1, 2016. This is to allow time for presentation set up and documentation. Items that arrive after that date, or are delivered at convention will not be accepted for the current year’s competition, but will be automatically entered in the following year’s competition. For each entry, complete and print the entry form or contact Blake to obtain entry forms via post or email. Entry forms will be available for completion in the display area for items submitted for the following year’s competition. Entries will be considered to have been donated to the NSS unless otherwise specified when submitted.
ENTRY FEES: The entry fee is $3.00 for the entrant's first entry and $1.00 for each additional entry. Cash is preferred; checks should be payable to “National Speleological Society.” Posters and Pamphlets Salon entry fees are now separate from the Symbolic Emblem and T-Shirt Salon entry fees.
JUDGING: A panel of judges will judge all entries prior to the Convention. I am looking for new and additional judges for the Posters and Pamphlets Salon. If you are able to become part of the new pool of judges, do not hesitate to contact me! If you have questions, e-mail Blake at the address below.
