- Entrants must be current PCA members, affiliates or family members, and must be 2014 Porsche Parade registrants.
- All art work must have express Porsche content, otherwise it will be disqualified. Each artist may enter up to two (2) pieces in each category. If you have multiple entries, you must submit separate entry forms for each artwork entered.
- Artists must correctly classify themselves as amateur or professional. If you have sold your art in the past three years, if you have an education preparing you for producing art, or if you have a career in an art capacity or if you have art related items for sale in the Parade Goodie Store, you belong in the Professional Group.
- Entrants work must be handcrafted (no kits), properly framed, mounted or otherwise prepared for display and signed by the artist named on the entry. Model cars can only be entered in the crafts category and only as a minor part of a larger artwork such as a diorama. Dioramas will compete in the crafts categories.

- Entries will be hand delivered to the Art Show and picked up by the entrant at the close of the show during the designated pick up period.
- We strongly suggest that entries in the Art Show remain on display the entire period of the show. If you don’t intend to remain at the Parade until the end of the Art Show please arrange with the Art Show staff to allow you to designate another Parade entrant to pick up your art work at the end of the Art show.
- Security will be provided during the show, but the Parade Committee and PCA accept no responsibility for loss or damage and no insurance is provided.

- Submit the 2-Page entry application for each piece of art work by mailto the address shown on the application. Applications are due to be in the mail by May 7, 2014. This will allow us to provision for awards. If your application will be late, contact the Art Show Chairman well before the start of the Parade. Failure to do so may disqualify you for awards.
Submitting Digital Picture files Your Art Work
Traditionally we have presented the Art Show Awards at the Artist’s Reception. For the last two years we have added a slide show presentation of the major Art Show awards shown at one of scheduled Parade banquets. We have had some photographic challenges obtaining quality photographs of the artwork at the Parade due to less than great lighting available and reflections on many framed art items. In addition to using these photographs at banquets we also use them in follow-up stories and promotions for the Art Show.
To improve the quality of the images related to the Art Show we are requesting that entrants in the art show provide digital files for each entry as follows:
- Provide one digital file for each item of art entered.
- Provide as good a photo as you can manage. Good exposures taken outdoors in shade with good lighting should do fine. Usually setting your digital camera on its highest resolution works best. Don’t exceed a file size of 9MB as larger files may have trouble getting past many internet servers (1 to 2 MB is high enough resolution. Take the digital picture before framing for show. Try to fill the viewfinder of your camera with the picture of your art work.
- Send the digital files to Burt Misevic via email, or on a CD via mail. The address information is on Page 2 of the Art Show Application.
- Due Date: Send the digital files by June 4, 2014. If you cannot meet the due date or have questions, contact Burt Misevic to work out the details.
Amateur or Professional
In PCA we are fortunate to have many Parade attendees who are professionals either by virtue of training and/or occupation or those who are able to find a market for their art. It is a long established policy of PCA to provide as great an opportunity as possible for Parade entrants to have a place to compete in the Art Show. For this reason, we provide a competitive group for both professional as well as amateur artists.
Criteria for Selecting the Professional Group – If you have sold your art in the past three years, if you have an education preparing you for producing art, if you have a career in an art capacity or if you have art related items for sale in the Parade Goodie Store, you belong in the Professional Group.
The Parade Art Show provides three categories including photography or computer art competition. Each of these categories is described below to help an entrant correctly place their art in the proper category.
Classic Photography – This category includes original camera exposures on film and digital media. Scanned film media into digital files can be used. This category allows basic image manipulation such as cropping, contrast adjustment, brightness adjustment and spotting as well as selection of image printing paper. No major elements of the original exposure can be removed and elements cannot be added to the image. Creative filters available in image manipulation software cannot be used. The produced image must represent camera generated photographic art.
Enhanced Photography – This category includes original exposures on file and digital media. Scanned film media into digital files can be used. This category allows the use of the manipulation tools of the Classic Photographic category. In addition, photographers can use the creative techniques available in common image software programs for adding elements, removing elements of the original exposure and making major changes to lighting, colors and other software generated effects. The image entered in this category must represent camera generated photographic art.
Entries in the above two categories will be reviewed by the Art Show staff for compliance to the category requirements based on the art submitted. An entrant has the option to bring along to the Parade their original camera exposure to show the staff should a question arise.
Computer Generated Art
This category may include any of the techniques of the two photography categories without limits and may include any digital or art techniques. Entrants are not required to use original camera exposures or photographic images.
