Submit your images early to any juried situation!
After my experince with CaFE, this opinion is stronger than ever.
On CaFE, the images were reviewed in sequential order - no option. The order appeared to be the order that people submitted their images.
Every time that I looked at the images, I had to start from the beginning of ALL THE IMAGES and look through EVERY image, no skipping ahead, no fast forward.
What this means is that the jurors will be “fresh” when they begin the review process. They may be looking at early arrivals first and be more open to the work shown. After a few hours and a few hundred images, the jurors will have seen a tremendous amount of work including a lot of very good choices suitable for the situation.
In a different situation (not using CaFE), the sequence is likely the same. If the exhibition sponsor has been organizing the images as they arrive in an effort to keep them neat and organized, the early submissions will be closer to the beginning and last minute arrivals will be at the end.
This principle of submitting your work early to any juried situation is TIP #9. PLAN CAREFULLY TO MEET ALL DEADLINES from the TOP TEN TIPS for Getting Into a Juried Exhibition, Craft Show, Book or Magazine.
