Entry Information, Terms and Conditions


* * * NEW FOR 2020 - DIGITAL ONLY SELECTION * * *

To make the process of submitting and selecting work simpler and safer, the Society will select works for exhibition from online only this year. Selectors will make an assessment of each work based on the digital images supplied, following which selected artists will be asked to deliver their accepted works to Mall Galleries for exhibition.

Guidance from the Selection Committee

In summary, the SWLA Selection Committee is looking for:

  • two and three-dimensional artwork inspired by the natural world
  • work that displays a deep knowledge and understanding of the subject matter, based on ‘in the field’ observation
  • work that reflects a personal, original, and creative response
  • work that displays a high level of technical skill
  • work that showcases interesting approaches and emerging new talent 

Conditions

Eligibility

  • Any artist over 18 may submit.
  •  Work should be based on representing the world’s wildlife.
  • Acceptable media: Work may be in any medium including painting, sculpture and original prints (if prints, please detail edition and how many are available). The SWLA is keen to embrace new and innovative mediums and will accept computer-generated images as ‘original prints’. However, a digital print is only considered an original print if it was created by the artist to be realised specifically as a print. Reproductions of paintings or photographs will not be accepted. Photographic reproductions or mechanical prints, giclée prints, etc., that are often promoted as ‘limited edition prints’ are not acceptable.
  • Submission fee: £18 per work (or £12 per work for artists aged 35 or under), which includes Free Admission to the exhibition (normally £4).
  • All work must be for sale. The price of works must include commission of 45%+VAT (please note that where foundry fees apply, foundry costs will be deducted before commission is calculated).
  • Minimum price: £200 (except for prints: framed £120, unframed £95).
  • Maximum of six works submitted, maximum of six works selected.
  • Works should not be larger than 2.4m along the longest dimension.
  • Work must have been completed within the last three years.
  • Work exhibited previously at Mall Galleries is not admissible.
  • Work will not be accepted if it is of botanical subjects, pets and domestic animals, or decorative wares (such as vessels or tiles)
  • Works that are poorly presented or differ significantly from the photograph that was entered will not be accepted.

Delivery & Collection

  • Packaging from delivered works cannot be retained and must be taken away at the point of delivery.
  • We are unable to wrap works or provide wrapping materials for any works being returned.
  • Paintings should be completely dry at the time of delivery.
  • Any work uncollected on the specified collection date/s will be stored at a separate location and the artist will be charged a storage fee.

Selection

  • The Selection Committee is formed of artist members of the Society
  • Please note that the selectors' decisions are final and we are unable to offer feedback.

International Entrants

  • Artists who are not resident in the UK but are resident in the EU or elsewhere are welcome to submit work. If your work is sold at the exhibition you have a responsibility to register and account for UK VAT with H.M. Revenue & Customs. Artists without a UK residence (known as 'NETPs' - non-established taxable persons) can find further details on 'NETP' status and how to register for VAT at www.hmrc.gov.uk, (HM Revenue & Customs Reference: Notice 700/1, Mar 2014) under the heading 'Should I be registered for VAT?'
