All artists must read and acknowledge the Rules and Conditions of Entry before submitting work.

CARE OF WORKS AND INSURANCE

The utmost care will be taken of all work submitted for selection, however the ING Discerning Eye shall have no liability for any loss or damage caused to work during the selection process, whether such damage is caused by the organisers, their team of staff or otherwise.

The Discerning Eye makes no provision for individual insurance of works and all artists submitting work for exhibition are strongly advised to make their own arrangements in this regard.

FRAMES

All works on paper must be securely framed. Frames should be stout enough to accept a small screw or nail in the back for hanging purposes. Fixings are not required, if selected for exhibition mirror plates will be supplied and used by the organisers. There should be no projections of any kind whatsoever from the back of the frames to avoid damage to other works. Metal frames, glazed works with unprotected glass edges and non-reflective glass are all inadmissible. Frames and mounts of unusual colour, size or design may prejudice the selectors’ judgement.

COLLECTION OF WORK

All unselected works must be collected from the Federation of British Artists, 17 Carlton House Terrace, London SW17 5BD on Friday 8 September or Saturday 9 September (10-4pm) 2017. If you sent your work via a regional Collection Centre and wish to have them collect your work for you, please contact the courier directly.

Works that remain uncollected will be removed from the Mall Galleries and taken into storage and will be liable for storage charges. The storage and collection address is: Chelsea Self Storage, Blantyre Street, London, SW10 0EQ.

Collection of these stored works will be available on Wednesday 13 and Wednesday 20 September (11am-4pm) and charges of £12 per work/per week will apply. Following these dates, collection will then be by appointment only and charges of £12 per work/per week will apply.

DATA PROTECTION

The ING Discerning Eye and their project managers hold personal data provided by entrants for the exhibition each year.

SALES OF WORK

ALL WORKS MUST BE FOR SALE. A commission of 40% + VAT shall be charged by The Discerning Eye on the price paid for work or work commissioned at the exhibition or as a result of introductions arranged by The Discerning Eye.

The Discerning Eye is a non-profit making organisation and any monies received go towards the next exhibition. Any sales effected by The Discerning Eye will have priority over a sale effected by the artist. Artists should include this commission of 40% + VAT in the price of the work described in the Entry Schedule. If registered for VAT it is the artists responsibility to declare and include this sum at the standard rate at the same price.

The price entered on the Schedule will be the catalogue selling price so please enter the figures carefully and accurately.

Online Sales

All works in the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition will be included in The Discerning Eye’s online version of the catalogue. Work not sold at the exhibition will remain for sale on the website until 1 January 2018.
Artists accepted for the exhibition will be asked to provide a digital image of their work for inclusion on the Discerning Eye website.
