Selected artists will be required to send or bring their work to the judging venue between Tuesday 2nd and Saturday 6th July.
Those artists who are selected for the second round of judging will be notified if their work has then been selected for exhibition by Monday 15th July, those who have not been selected should make arrangements for the collection of their work on or by Saturday 20th July.
It is the artist’s responsibility to contact the gallery if s/he has not received notification by that date.
The exhibition at the gallery will be open to the public from the 20th of July until the 1st of September. There will be a Private View to which all entering and selected artists will be invited on the 19th of July from 6 until 9pm. Those notified as shortlisted for prizes must attend the Private View.
Artists selected for the final show will be asked, at their convenience, to enter into a program of discussions, talks and workshops during the show’s lifetime.
Works selected for exhibition cannot be removed before the end of the show and will be available for collection from the day after it ends.
The copyright for all works exhibited will remain the property of the artist, but it is a condition of entry that the artist or their representatives agree unconditionally that the gallery may reproduce any exhibited works, free of charge, for the purposes of marketing, promotion, merchandise, discussion and education in direct connection with Guggleton, including the exhibition catalogue and subsequent publications, posters, prints and postcards. The gallery also reserves the right to reproduce selected images free of charge for core non-commercial purposes, for example in the Past Exhibitions page of the gallery website, indefinitely, as a public record.
It is also a condition on entering the competition that the artist agrees that visitors to the gallery are permitted to take photographs without flash of their work for personal, non-commercial use during the run of the exhibition. The gallery will install notices indicating that photography without flash is permitted provided it is for personal, non-commercial use but will not be liable if any images of the work, taken by visitors, are exploited commercially.
The responsibility for damage or loss, however caused, is the responsibility of the artist. Artists are therefore advised to arrange adequate insurance cover against such risks. The gallery shall not be liable for any loss or damage, whether or not caused by their negligence.
