Frequently Asked Questions
What is Entry Thingy?
Entry Thingy is used across the country by art fairs, galleries, museums, colleges, and cities to manage art shows - from entry to jury, Entry Thingy handles the entire process in a secure environment. Entry Thingy allows artists to reuse their images for entries to multiple shows that use this entry system, and allows for online jurying of the exhibition.
Why do I have to create a login?
Entry Thingy is a secure system. Your images are stored safely on a server that is backed up nightly - no lost entries. This service will also allow for more image formats to be explored, and for emails to be easily sent to exhibition entrants about the status of the exhibition and your entries.
How do I enter?
Below is a tutorial video from Entry Thingy that will guide you through the process, from registration through entering your pieces. Also, every Wednesday at 1pm Pacific time there is a webinar for introducing artists to the system (sign up on the Entry Thingy site.)
How do I know the status of my entry?
Please click over to the Review your Entries page where you can login with your EntryThingy email and password and view the status of all of your entries submitted through EntryThingy.
My entry didn't upload correctly, what do I do?
If you are experiencing stalling, or failing uploads, please follow the steps below to improve your chances of success. If your upload completes and your JPG image does not display properly, please make sure you have set the color space to RGB / sRGB.
- The most reliable way to upload to EntryThingy is by using a browser equipped with the most up-to-date technology. Please make sure you have the newest version of your browser installed on your computer.
- You should use a Chrome incognito window or Firefox Private Browse. This will temporarily exclude the use of browser extensions, which may interfere with communication between your computer and EntryThingy. Ad blocking extensions, for instance, are commonly responsible for these problems.
- You should temporarily disable anti-spyware, anti-virus, or similar software. These programs are also known to interfere with communication.
- Reboot your computer (yes, this really does help)
- You may also benefit from plugging your computer directly into your modem with an ethernet cable, rather than connecting wirelessly through a router. This can improve the stability of your connection.
If you continue to experience issues with your upload, contact us and we may be able to help.
I need to edit the entry I have submitted.
Please contact Megan Mercier to ask for your entry to be set back to "Not submitted". You will then be able to edit your entry.
