The Annual Small Format Exhibit is a small format show (all 4" x 6" postcard sized collages). This exhibit gives each participating member a guaranteed opportunity to display the one collage that they select for entry. There is NO JURY and one Awards Judge. The main annual national exhibit in the Fall has become so large in scope that many artists cannot be accepted. The jury selects only an average of 30%-50% from the total entries. For this NCS members Small Format Exhibit, 100% are accepted. This is a member show, anyone who is a member and enters will be in the show. This exhibition does NOT count toward your Signature Member status. CASH AWARDS and merit certificates will be selected by the awards judge.
