Contribute Your Exhibit to the RVG
Submitting exhibits to the Rossica Virtual Gallery
The Rossica Society is pleased to offer our visitors digital copies of philatelic exhibits on our website. We accept digital copies of
Russia and related exhibits for display on the RVG. If you choose to contribute your exhibit to the RVG, your exhibit will be viewable on the
website, and will also be available as a pdf download. You can display an exhibit anonymously or under a pseudonym, if you wish.
If you have questions on the process of converting an exhibit for use on the RVG, please contact the Rossica Society Webmaster,
Jeff Radcliffe for assistance.
How to Convert Your Exhibit and Submit the Exhibit for Use on the RVG
- Scan your exhibit at 600dpi or better, ensuring the the exhibit is in the correct order (Title page through last page). For example, if
your exhibit has 10 frames, you should submit all 160 pages of the exhibit. Scan each page and save as separate image files (*.jpg, *.gif,
or *.png) or single pdf files. If you save your scanned exhibit as a pdf, it is a good practice to save each frame as a single file to ensure that files are not
too large. We only need your exhibit in one format! If you send the exhibit in pdf format, we will convert the files that are
needed as image files. We will also convert image files to pdf as required.
- Write two summaries for your exhibit: (a) a long summary to be used on the web page dedicated to the exhibit, and (b) a short summary
that will be used to describe the exhibit on the main page of the RVG. The summaries should explain the significance of the topic,
its relevance, and anything else you feel is important to add, especially any bibliography of sources that you used to compile your exhibit.
In short, an in-depth synopsis of the sort that is routinely given to judges prior to a regular show. The Society can summarize the
exhibit for you, if you prefer.
- If you would like to have a specific image(s) used to illustrate your exhibit, provide two copies of the image (or images) that are sized at 310px x 448px, and
100px x 153px. The images can be saved in most formats, but the prefered format is *.png. The Society can select images for you, if
- Contact the Webmaster, Jeff Radcliffe, to determine the best method to submit your exhibit. Smaller exhibits can be sent by email, but other electornic means (like ftp, Dropbox,
Onedrive, etc.) can also be used. You can also copy your exhibit on to a DVD or CD ROM and mail the files through regular mail.
