My students have created texts with a 500 character limit for the 'intention' not including the title, medium and size. My question is when I go to upload, will this then be over the limit? Sorry if I have asked what others have but I just want to be clear. Thank you so much, Aisling

Hi Aisling- i believe it cuts you off after 500 characters so try to put the important stuff first ;)

If I remember correctly, the information line for the student artwork (title, medium and size) are requested in separate fields/boxes for the upload, not in the same box as the 500 character 'intention'.

I think that is right Angela

For the upload- do we still need to submit title/ medium/ size? Ir has one of these been dropped for the 2018 upload? Thanks

Yes of course, include all of the info

Heather McReynolds 12 March 2018 - 20:02

Hi, Heather
I'd be grateful if you could confirm if there are separate boxes for images, dimensions etc and Intentions text.

Heather McReynolds 12 March 2018 - 20:02

separate boxes for each

Hi Heather,
Does the student attach the statements to their pieces when they are displayed?
like a card hanged beside the piece?

Hi Heba, this is a choice the student ( or teacher) can make re the exhibition display and does not impact the uploaded work. It can be nice for the viewer to read the students rationales at the exhibition.
