How the work is judged: The Naughti Gras Show tries to be edgier, and
more fun than what one might expect from an erotic art exhibition.
Other than legal age requirements, nothing is censored, nothing too
filthy or too subtle. All art is considered, from the high, to the
low, from the biggest names, to the first timers. We have seen erotic
work from expressionists, abstracts, commercial artists,
photographers, and more. Comic and pin-up art has as much chance as a
realistically rendered fine-art piece. We want to be amazed, excited,
astounded, humored or aghast, we love it all.

The Naughti Gras Show is juried by the organizers along with a few
experts we respect. Art ranges from classic museum quality
craftsmanship, to crude at-tempts at expressionism. The decision all
boils down to, do we like it? Our main criteria are, "Is it erotic?"
closely followed by "Is it good?" This covers a huge spectrum, as
"erotic" can cover many areas. We'll admit, some art goes way over the
edge, if you can shock us; you will most likely end up on the wall.

Alright then, Let's Get Naughti!

Please view the attached. Is something like that okay? I do lots of this kind of work. This one would not be used, for it was a practice sketch from a photo. I have lots more and lots naughtier well suited.... :)
I think you should submit your image to the exhibt. What have you got to loose? It doesn't cost anything to enter. It's a very well done drawing. (I am not the juror by the way).

I have a quick question, and felt it would be best asked here instead of emailed to the jury. I was looking at old emails today, and stumbled across the application I had sent in for this show. I realized that because I was emailing multiple pictures, AOL sent them in a zipped folder. Should I go back and email my pieces again, under another email provider who won't compress them? Or will no one really care?

I'm curious because I don't want something that small to ruin my chances!

Thank you!
I would re-send your images. Send each one seperately in an unzipped file.

Good luck!
