Each piece of work (hung on its own hanger) shall count as one entry. Diptychs and Triptychs are considered one entry but total size of piece must adhere to size limitations.
Each separate artwork is judged.
PRESENTATION: All 2D artwork to be equipped with flat “D” rings and cord and be marked clearly on the back with the artist’s name, title of work and price.
No wet works will be accepted.
Artworks without suitable hanging cords or wires will not be hung.
All items must be for sale and a 34% commission must be included in the sale price quoted. If registered for the GST, the GST component must be included. Artists must seek their own advice from the ATO if they are unsure as to whether they are liable for GST.
The Vasse Primary School P&C, coordinator of the Vasse Art Award, is a non-profit organisation. The P&C is not registered for GST and therefore does not have an obligation to collect GST on art sales. As an artist, you will need to provide the P&C with a tax invoice quoting your ABN number and the sale price of your artwork, minus the Award commission. (For example, if your artwork sold for $1,000, the P&C will collect the total payment of $1,000 from the buyer and retain a 34% commission. You then provide a tax invoice for $660)
All works must be the artist’s own work completed within the last two years and must NOT have won any previous prizes.
Biographic details and / or artist’s statement must be included with the entry form.
Insurance is the responsibility of the artist. All reasonable care will be taken but no responsibility for loss or damage is accepted.
Artists wishing to submit large sculptural pieces are advised to discuss their proposal well in advance.
Archival materials and quality of construction will be considered by the judges. The organisers may reject any entry on the grounds that material, subject, presentation or method of production is considered unsuitable for the purpose of the Award.
Max artwork size is 160cm x 160cm x 160cm (including frame for pictures). Items larger than this size on any dimension will not be accepted.
Artist must be prepared to deliver and help move their 3D artwork weighing more than 25kg. Sculptors are asked to provide their own plinth if necessary.
Selection and judges’ decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Artists agree to allow any work to be reproduced in part, or whole, by print or electronic media for promotion of the Award. Copyright remains the property of the artist.
Reasonable effort will be made to exhibit ALL works and ALL entries will be judged.
Organisers are not responsible for repacking artwork for pick up. This must be arranged by the artist.
Art not collected at specified times will remain secured at artists risk on the school property and it will be the responsibility of the artist to arrange collection during school hours only.
Successful exhibiting artists will be notified via telephone and invited to the open night on Saturday 14 April for presentation of prizes.
Production wares will not be accepted.
The Silent Auction is a popular component of the VAA exhibition with many artists donating small 10″x10″ artworks on canvas to help raise funds for Vasse Primary School. Jacksons Drawing Supplies in Busselton has generously donated a number of these canvases. Artists must collect canvases in-store while stocks last and deliver this artwork with their entry.
To complement the exhibition and sale of artworks at the Vasse Primary School, artworks will also be catalogued and offered for sale online via this website (unless artists have opted out). This new approach is aimed at making the art more accessible and open to a wider audience of buyers. The artist commission structure remains the same and online buyers will if necessary cover shipping and handling fees at the time of purchase. The online catalogue will feature the artist’s own photo and description of their artwork as well as its size and recommended price. Once the online catalogue is live from midnight on 14 April 2018, prices cannot be changed.
