Entries are limited to two per entrant.
Entrants must be citizens of Australia or New Zealand, have permanent residency in either country or have been based in Australia or New Zealand for the previous six months prior to entry.
The work must have been made between 1 January 2014 and 15 June 2014 and use glass as its primary element. With the exception of exhibitions under the authority of a teaching facility, the work should not have been previously exhibited or published.
Any surface treatment applied to the glass artworks for exhibition purposes must be noted on the entry form. Non-permanent surface treatments do not tour well, and Ranamok reserves the right to decline pieces treated with non-permanent surface coating.
All material provided with the official entry will become the property of Ranamok Glass Prize Limited ACN 101 776 470 (RGPL). RGPL will not be obliged to return any of the material to the entrants
Each entrant represents and warrants that:
(a) the works they submit, including photographs, are original works, original in design and are the property of the artist(s) named (entries for collaborative works must be jointly signed and acknowledged by all contributing artists);
(b) the work(s) they submit, including photographs, do not infringe the rights of any person (including copyright, registered design, moral right or any other intellectual property right); and
(c) they have the right to grant the licence in the following paragraph.
Each entrant grants RGPL a non-exclusive, irrevocable licence to use, publish or reproduce in connection with the competition, promotion of the competition, exhibition and tour of their works any intellectual property rights in the works (including photographs) submitted by the entrant. The aforementioned licence includes the right for RGPL to sub-licence without the consent of an entrant, including as necessary for RGPL to permit third parties to produce catalogues and photographs of the works on behalf of RGPL. Any digital images or photographs submitted by an entrant may be used by RGPL in catalogues, on the RGPL website and for marketing and promoting the 2012 Ranamok Glass Prize in Australia or overseas. Wherever practicable, the artist and photographer will be attributed in the aforementioned catalogues and website.
Each entrant acknowledges and agrees that breach of these terms and conditions will result in the disqualification of their entry. Further, each entrant indemnifies and agrees to hold RGPL harmless against any loss or damage suffered by RGPL in connection with breach of these terms and conditions, including breach of any representation or warranty by an entrant.
The judging panel will select the finalists and the winner.
Finalists will be notified via email by Friday 27th June 2014.
Finalists will be invited to an award evening at which the winner will be announced. The exhibition will subsequently tour to selected venues around Australia and internationally for public display for a period of up to two years.
Freight, customs and insurance of the works from the artist to the Canberra Glassworks at the beginning of the tour and from the Sydney holding address (to be notified in finalist letter) back to the artist at the end of the tour will be the responsibility of the artist. Insurance of the work whilst on tour will be the responsibility of RGPL, provided the work is packed by the artist to a museum standard. Packing details can be obtained from RGPL and will be included in notification to finalists. RGPL has right of refusal if it considers that the work is not packed to the required museum standard. See www.ranamok.com for further details.
Works are stored at the artist's cost if not collected from the Sydney holding address within one week of the release date advised by RGPL. RGPL may sell works remaining uncollected after a further four weeks and may recover unpaid storage/warehousing costs from the proceeds.
RGPL will award A$15,000 to the winner, irrespective of the value of the work. On receipt of the award, the work becomes the property of RGPL.
All works submitted in the exhibition (excluding the winner) will be for sale, allowing for 50% commission on the nominated retail price (excluding GST). Commissions on sold work will be to the account of RGPL and will be used to further promote and develop the Ranamok Glass Prize. The price submitted on your entry form is final and will not be changed.
RGPL does not handle on-sales. Any purchasing enquiries that result from the finalist exhibitions will be forwarded to Maureen Cahill at the Glass Artists' Gallery who will be entitled to any commission earned as a result of any on-sale.
Works to be sold separately must be crated separately.
Finalists' works are to be available for touring purposes for the duration of the tour. Payment for sold works will be made within one month from the end of tour.
Ranamok Glass Prize Limited strives to exhibit your work in the manner requested, but as it is a touring exhibition, size or structure limitations may arise in certain cases. In particular, we often have limited options for hanging wall pieces in Sydney and Brisbane. If artwork can't be displayed in certain locations, artists will be notified.
