Submissions should include the proposed works in any technique such as screenprint, stencil, lithography, etching, inkjet printing, etc., without any limitation of approach or concept. All works will be on display during HALFTONE, at The Library Project and Black Church Print Studio from the launch at 7pm on Thursday 19 November 2015, when they will go on sale.
To speed up the process and to encourage prompt submissions, all forms are being replied to within 48 hours with a final decision. Space is limited, so do not wait till the deadline to submit.
Guidelines & Requirements
■ Do not wait till the deadline to submit. The sooner you do, the better.
■ Individuals can propose any number of prints via the online form in this page, and there is a €10 fee per submission form.
■ The submission form will offer upload space for 20 images, and you can propose a maximum of 10 prints per submission.
■ You must submit 2 images per proposed print:
– A digital copy of the artwork itself with a width of 1600px on the longest side. This image will be used to promote your work.
– A photograph of the print framed or mounted*, as it is proposed to be presented at HALFTONE.
With these images, we are able to asses the artwork, its presentation, and can plan its hanging.
* We accept loose prints wrapped in protective sleeves and with some hard backing like cardboard, well presented and neat. We don’t need a print to be mounted, as in glued, to a hard back.
■ We will ONLY accept prints if they are framed, but can consider mounted prints if presented appropriately, wrapped in protective plastic.
■ We will NOT accept prints if they are presented unprotected, rolled-up, tubed, or if they are not in perfect conditions. We reserve the right to decline participation without any refund if this condition is not met.
■ No signage, branding, watermark, sticker, etc. should be visible anywhere on the artworks, except for signatures, and edition numbers if applicable.

■ Deadline of submissions is midnight 2nd November.
■ Delivery of accepted artworks can be done right away, and anytime before the deadline on Monday 9th November to The Library Project.
■ At the time of delivery to The Library Project, all submitted prints are expected to be ready to hang, numbered, and signed as required.
■ Selected artists will be required to confirm their participation within 48 hours. If we receive no reply on time we may cancel participation and pass on the acceptance.
■ As always, we will handle all prints with the utmost professional care, but can not take responsibility for any damage caused to the prints while on display at The Library Project.
■ All unsold artworks must be collected between 5pm Sunday 22nd Nov and 6pm Tuesday 24th Nov. All works uncollected will be disposed of on Wednesday 25th Nov.
