Directory Artist Profile Instructions 2017-03-02T15:30:35+00:00

Setting Up Your Directory Profile

Overview:

The Directory is available only to SSAC Members – your membership must be valid. You will first become a site user, by choosing a user name and password. Then you enter the site, input your Coupon Code and, access your Account Area where you will set up, or edit, your public Profile. Each time you create or change your profile it must be approved by the Site Admin before it goes live (this protects the site from unwanted content). Please keep in mind that you won’t see your live site instantaneously. 

Before you Begin:

Gather your digital materials:

  • Bio and/ or Artist Statement
  • Supporting materials: Images, videos or music files. Image files will show best if they are edited to the same height dimensions.
  • **Images: It’s highly recommended that you upload web-friendly images: between 100-700kb size files and no more than 1MB (smaller files load faster for the viewer). Consider editing your images to be no more than 600 – 1000 dpi in height.
  • You will need 5-10 minutes to create your profile.
