I, too, wondered if this might be the reason juried shows still ask for slides. However, most of them state that they have the right to reject the work if the original is not as pictured. In addition to that, why couldn't they put a statement to be signed by the artist saying that the digital image has not been altered on the entry form?

Subject: slides and scholarship aps/AP Studio
The first thing I think about when people start talking about eliminating
slides in favor of digital, is when we go entirely to digital scholarship
applications and AP Studio submissions, they are not necessarily the "true"
image. It's too easy to clean up a piece of artwork, add contrast,
intensify colors, etc. in a digital submission. Do you think this will
become a problem??
