• Artwork must be original two dimensional paintings or drawings in any traditional medium (no digital work). Artwork(s) must not breach any copyright – this includes copies of professional artist’s work done in workshop settings. (No Giclée prints).
• The perimeter measurement of artwork is to be less than or equal to 200cm – i.e. measure side 1 + side 2 + side 3 + side 4. If your total is greater than 200cm, it is too large. (If it is framed, please measure the outside edges of the frame.)
