What happens if my work is sold?

We charge 20% commission on sold artwork. You will need to invoice for the balance

Is my work insured?

Does everything get to be included?

We do try and include all work submitted but we reserve the right to decide what is included and what cannot be included. For example, we will not include artwork presented using an unsuitable hanging method. We have limited space for 3D work so cannot accept large pieces.
