Plus any postage costs for those who can’t get to the studio to assess their prints.

Additional test prints beyond 1 per file $5 each.

FILE SPECS: Our system is calibrated to the following PRINT standard D60: 6000k / Gamma 2.2 / 80 candela.

Colour space/profile: We can work with sRGB files but our Canon printer has a wider gamut than that, so to get the most from your work we can work with Adobe(1998)RGB files. If your monitor is limited to displaying sRGB (example iMac etc), stick with sRGB if you want predictable results.

File size: We accept files sized to output size at 300ppi. Minimum print size in 2019 is 26cm on the long edge. We can also work with files of native resolution, and do the downsizing to print size for you.

File type: Prefer .tif or .psd flattened… no layers thanks! 16Bit preferred. Don’t send jpegs.

Paper Choices: We can guide you on the best paper for your image if required.

For those outside Brisbane: If you are outside of Brisbane and require your tests and/or entries to be mailed we need your files by 1 July 2019. You will be charged $15 for test print express postage service.

*Tests from any files received on 2 July or later will ONLY be able to be assessed by the author at our print studio at Shop 5 357 Logan Rd, Stones Corner Qld 4120.

PLEASE NOTE: This Awards Printing Service is in no way associated with the AIPP, and supplying your files to Living Image Fine Art Print does not constitute an entry in itself. You must enter awards via the AIPP/APPA website.
