Photographing Your Project
Remember, your item’s image is all that the jurors see in evaluating your entry, so the quality of the image is extremely important.
1. Submitting images of your project
You may not make modifications (this includes color correction). You may crop the background, but be sure not to crop too closely to the edges.
2. Required images
3. Taking images of your project
4. Suggestions for good photography
If your project is selected for the 2012 International Quilt Festival Special Exhibit, additional information will be required. These will include a Label and a Standard Loan Agreement with Quilts Inc.
An example of the Label:
by Mary Fisher
Techniques: Machine quilted, hand and machine embellished
Design Source: Working in my new studio in Sedona and beginning a new chapter in my life.
Worst is the middle of the night. Almost awake, ghosts of death crawl under the sheets with me. It's 1995 again. Everywhere I turn, new friends wasting into skeletons. It's 1993, Brian, once my laughing husband, is holding my hands as his fingers turn blue and cold. It's 2006, African children are unable to laugh, to breathe, to nurse. I've loved them all and saved not one of them. Not one. Not one. Then comes early light and coffee. My soul has been shaken again. It is quiet, pensive.
In keeping with GS guidelines only the girl's first name and last initial will be displayed.
The Design Source information can be basic information or share a story as the example above.

The 2012 Project Fabric Art Special Exhibit will be located across from the Girl Scout booth located in the Service Program Area. As always we are looking for volunteers to man the booth, Girl Scout volunteers, girls & adults who can serve a 2 hour shift. Two girls and one adult may volunteer for each shift. Thurs, Fri & Sat - 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., and two hour increments thereafter until the final shift @ 5:30 p.m.; Sunday shifts on the hour from 11 a.m.- 1, 1-3 p.m. and 3-5 p.m.. This is a great opportunity for the girls who have their entries displayed to talk to visitors from around the world and show off their entries. Last year we had a Brazilian Magazine interview us at the GS booth!
