RIGHTS

1. Artists grant Blank Wall Gallery the right to use their images to promote the exhibition, for display on Blank Wall Gallery webpage and for inclusion in an exhibit catalog.

2. The Artists declare that they are the owners of the Works that will be exhibited and they have their copyrights.

3. Any photograph used by Blank Wall Gallery will have a photographer’s credit.

4. The royalties of the Works are not bestowed to Blank Wall Gallery at any time. The copyright of the Works remains in the creators and in them alone.

5. The copyright of the Works during and after the exhibition remains with the Artist.

6. Blank Wall Gallery does not have the right to make use of or bestow the high definition files or the prints of the Works that will be used for the realization of the exhibition.

7. Blank Wall Gallery may use all entries submitted for marketing & promotional purposes across all media though there may not be any monetary compensation.

8. Blank Wall Gallery will not have any commercial profit from the Works that will be exhibited and it cannot exploit them at any time.

9. The Works will remain at the Blank Wall Gallery premises only for the period the exhibition lasts for.

10. The Works can remain at the Blank Wall Gallery premises only if the exhibition is prolonged for some time after the end of the programmed date.

11. The artists whose works have been exhibited in our gallery will be notified two months after the end of the exhibition, if they want their prints sent to them or not.

Those who can come to the gallery, they can take the print for free.
For the artists who cannot visit the gallery because of the distance, there is a fixed price for this service, which is the average shipping cost, so that all the artists should know what they should pay. The price is the same for all the artists regardless of the country they come from, so that we avoid the constant emailing about prices, and it is €16 for one print and an extra €1.8 for each additional print up to 50x50cm. For larger prints the extra cost is €2.2 for each extra print. Each package can contain up to 5 photos. If there are more than 5 prints you want us to send you, we should do a second package, as the cost becomes very high because of the exceeding weight. The cost includes the photos, the package, the insurance and the shipping of the parcel. The gallery has no profit from this.

At the end of this process the gallery will proceed to the destruction of the prints that were not claimed. Only a small file in the size of 750 pixels will be kept for the prompt function of the web page.

12. Neither Blank Wall Gallery nor their associates, affiliates or partners assume any responsibility for photos submitted in violation of copyright regulations.

I have read and agree to all the rules and regulations of this agreement.
