  1. Click on Recycle to register. (It’s under the heading AVAILABLE SHOWS). You will be taken to a secure site where you can pay your application fee.

Click on the Choose File button to browse for the file you want to upload. The actual file name is the image file title you see in a directory / folder. File names cannot have special characters as they present security risks or are not compatible with programming. When you browse your folder to select your file and then it inserts into the SmarterEntry system, you may see something like this: c:\my_harddrive\filename.jpg. The c:\my_harddrive\ is the computer’s path to the file. It can/will have special characters, and that is ok. It is only the filename.jpg part that cannot have special characters.


  1. Upload your image as directed. Please note that all fields marked with an asterisk are required. Selling price and year created will not be a factor in the juror’s selection. Use the Additional Notes box for information you would like the juror to consider, particularly explaining what material is “recycled”, if it’s not obvious. Sculptors: Please indicate in the notes field how your work will be presented, i.e., floor, wall mount, pedestals and size. These notes may be used as part of the exhibition.
