Here's the official answer from the tech help at submittable.com regarding Dropbox issues: "Yes, with smartphones and tablets, users are required to upload their documents from Dropbox. They will be prompted to create a Dropbox account if they don't already have one that they are logged into. The account is free and is the smartphone/tablet alternative since these devices cannot be browsed to attach files."
If you are selling your work directly to customers (for example, in a booth space at a festival), you must have your own NYS Sales Tax ID #. Learn more at: http://www.tax.ny.gov/pubs_and_bulls/tg_bulletins/st/how_to_register_for_nys_sales_tax.htm. If you are selling your work through a Gallery Show with SLC Arts, we handle sales and sales tax on purchases.

Fine Art Up North is an annual calendar published by SLC Arts showcasing the work of North Country artists. Artists are invited to submit up to three images for consideration by a panel of jurors for inclusion in the calendar; a maximum of one image per artist will be published in the calendar. Submissions may include high quality images of 3-dimensional artwork. Artists must be current SLC Arts members or join at the time of submission (purchase a $25 basic membership here).
Our local customers frequently purchase our calendar to give as gifts
to relatives and friends who live outside the North Country region. When
selecting landscapes and other scenes depicting outdoor life, we will
give preference to images which evoke the spirit of life in this region.

- Submissions may include images of 3-dimensional artwork which meet all the same criteria.

- Strong computer skills are very important to the work we do. On a daily basis, our employees use Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, DonorSnap, WordPress, HootSuite & other social media platforms, submittable.com, and QuickBooks.
- We are a small, close-knit team and everyone is expected to pitch in. This means that sometimes the Director sweeps the Dance Studio floor after an event, the Graphic Designer picks up the office supply order, the Program Coordinator sets up chairs for a meeting, and so on.
- How you behave in the community reflects on the organization as a whole. The strong relationship we have with individuals and organizations in our community is our greatest asset, and as an employee your image impacts our image.
- We have a sense of humor. It's how we stay sane in a fast-paced office while multi-tasking and trying to meet deadlines.
