The jury will ensure impartial, transparent and fair judging when selecting the works.

We will communicate submission results to each individual artist by mail or e-mail.

We will ensure the safe storing and keeping of works after they are received.

We will verify the condition of the works when they are received and immediately inform the sender/artist if the work was damaged during transport. We, however, cannot assume responsibility for any damage incurred during the shipping and transport of the work(s).

We will use the information provided by the artist respectfully and we will render it in a correct manner in promotional materials.

We will either hand-deliver or send to every participant the following: a articipant diploma, the catalogue of the biennale and prize or award (if this is the case).

Obligations of participant

Applicants must agree to provide accurate information and to abide by the biennale statute.

Selected artists must send only the works that were selected by the international jury.

Participants must cover the cost of shipping their work(s) and ensure its appropriate packaging.

Participants must ship their work(s) using the door-to-door service provided by transport companies. The recommended ones are DHL, FedEx, TNT (Fan Courier or Urgent Curier in Romania). We do not recommend UPS due to poor experience regarding handling :( The participants must agree to pay any additional costs incurred and any customs taxes imposed. However, from our experience in organizing international exhibitions, in 99% of the times no customs taxes were imposed. 

Participants must grant the organizers the right to reproduce with no restriction all the images of the submitted or selected works.
