DEADLINE FOR ENTRY: 19 DECEMBER 2016, by 5PM (GMT)
The panel of judges will review all entries from the digital submission process. Approximately 200 artists will then be invited to deliver their actual works to the Federation of British Artists (FBA), 17 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5BD, for the final judging. Only works shortlisted from the initial digital submission will be received for final judging. These works will only be accepted at the submission point with fully completed entry forms and labels, which will be emailed to artists following the initial judging. Please note that notification of all results will be sent by email only.
Works on paper must be framed. Metal, plastic or clip frames will not be allowed. It is suggested that canvases in excess of 36 inches square should have adequate cross-bearers to avoid damage. There should be no projections from the back of the frames. Please tape down any wires or rings on the back of the frames.
All works shortlisted for the final selection must be labelled with the artist’s name, address, title of work and, if for sale, the price. Works submitted must be available for exhibition.
The risk of damage or loss, however caused, is the responsibility of the artist, who is therefore advised to arrange adequate insurance cover. The provisions of this call for entries may be waived or varied by the Prize Organisers in their sole discretion.
