About the opportunity: Radcliffe & Newland invite all 2D artists (including photography) regardless of their experience or education in the art field to send us their work for inclusion into the July/August group art exhibition. Open to submissions from UK residents. Entry is FREE.
Deadline for entries is 5 June 2012.
Awards will be for 1st through 3rd places and in addition there will be a visitor’s favourite announced at the end.
Prize: Along with the kudos of winning a prize to enhance your CV, the winners will receive publicity in the form of email marketing, press release announcements, event announcements, social media marketing and increased website traffic to promote the artists’ accomplishments. Winning images will be showcased in our client newsletters and there will also be links to the artists’ websites. Winning images may also be used as part of the promotional material for next year’s competition.

All entries will be acknowledged promptly to confirm receipt and request any missing information.
Background to Radcliffe & Newlands as a venue for art
Radcliffe & Newlands are financial planners with one foot in the City and the other in Shoreditch. This location, combined with the directors’ personal interest in art, gave rise to the idea of creating an alternative space for up and coming artists to display their work. We have turned the public half of our office into a gallery, inviting artists to hold exhibitions. We host opening nights and private views but also give artists the opportunity to reach our clients coming to the office to see their adviser. Encountering art unexpectedly is always a pleasure and we believe art should be in all public spaces.
Terms and conditions of entry
1. All work must be available for the duration of the exhibition and delivered to Radcliffe & Newlands by the artist no later than Monday 25 June.
2. All work and text submitted may be used for promotional material relating to the competition.
3. All work submitted must be for sale and we levy a 30% commission on any sales.
4. The utmost care will be taken of all work submitted, however Radcliffe & Newlands will not be liable for any damage caused to work which occurs in the normal course of handling the work whether such damage is caused by the organisers, their employees or otherwise.
5. Work will be available for collection at the end of the exhibition on Saturday 1 September, Monday 3 September or after that by appointment. There are very limited storage facilities, particularly for larger works, so we recommend prompt collection of work after this date.
