Digital Seminars

Learn How to Do It/See What they Look Like

  • “I knew ZIP about ZAPP, but this seminar changed all of that. Great job of explaining the jury process, the equipment, the process to prepare art and upload to the site.”
  • “Excellent!”
  • “Covered ZAPP process well!

We are pleased to announce a continuing series of seminars and workshops sponsored by NAIA to help artists learn about the process of creating digital images of your artwork for submission to festivals that are, or soon may be, switching from accepting slides.

Seminars are presented by leading authorities on preparing ZAPP images. With a particular focus on the ZAPPlication? requirements, this seminar will give instructions and answer questions about digitizing your own images for optimal effect, as well as tips for hiring others to prepare your images for you. Additionally, artists will have the opportunity to view their own images projected through the same ROKU and LCD system used by ZAPP?.*

Don’t miss these opportunities to learn more about ZAPP?! Space is limited, so register now!

For more information on preparing digital images, visit Larry Berman’s Preparing Images for Zapp? page.
