Upload quality images of your art

Do I need to frame my art?
It is mandatory for all 2D work to have suitable wire and screws for hanging.(Wire must be heavy enough to support the art.) Drawings must be mounted onto poster board or foam core 1" bigger on all sides. This is so the drawing can be hung for display without damaging the work.
