You must be the owner of the submitted artworks and the work(s) submitted are of your own origination. You must hold all moral and intellectual property rights in the submitted artworks.

There is no entry fee.

The Organisers cannot guarantee the Judging Panel members in any way, even if specified by the Artist in the submission form, but will endeavour to notify The Artist of any changes within 30 days. The Artist accepts that their submission is not dependent on the Judging Panel members.

By submitting the digital entry form, you accept that if successful in stage 1 the selected artwork(s) must be available in order to proceed to stage 2 and be delivered for physical exhibition and display as part of the shortlist exhibition. Dates for the delivery window will be given to you before the shortlist has been selected and confirmed.

The Artist agrees to allow The Organisers to share details from the entry form with our partners, supporters and sponsors. This includes submitted personal data limited to full name, website, social media profiles, email and phone number.

The Artist, upon submitted their entry and payment, is not restricted in selling or exhibiting the artwork themselves until they are invited to be Shortlisted in stage 1 onwards, and The Artist will be contacted by The Organisers specifically to check this. 

For any artworks submitted to the competition, you are not restricted in selling it, exhibiting it or any similar activity. But we ask you that you notify us if it is sold or changes ownership, or changes in any way. The entry fee is non-refundable, but you may notify us if you wish to remove the artwork or application from consideration by The Organisers and Judging Panel.

Once The Artist has submitted their entry form, no changes or additions will be allowed. 

The Organisers endeavour to take care of your work, but will not be liable for any loss or damage to any artworks physically submitted at any point, however caused, whether in transit to and from the exhibition, or during any period of storage, packing or unpacking, exhibition or in any period in which the work is in their or the Sponsor's keeping.

The Organisers recommend that you take out insurance to cover the artwork, especially for while in transit and while at the Sponsor's premises. Having insurance is not, however, obligatory for entry into the competition.

If you are being considered for the Shortlist, you will be required to read carefully and sign a Prize Participation Agreement detailing The Organiser’s and your obligations for being Shortlisted, exhibited and promoted. This will be sent in advance of being Shortlisted, and acceptance is required within 7 days of receiving it in order to be confirmed as Shortlisted.

Once registered for this competition, all Artists agree that we, The Organisers and The Sponsors, may all reproduce the Artists' work for purposes of marketing, promotion, discussion and education, in media including catalogues and publications, posters, postcards, websites and social media and on television, and may license, under these conditions to others only for the same purposes.

Artists agree to be placed on The Organiser's mailing lists for our email newsletters and any other information that we may send you and grant full permission in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation. The Artist reserves the right to opt-out of this at any time.
