All pictures must be framed in wooden frames - no clip frames or metal frames will be accepted. All works must have 2 mirror plates attached. All works are to be handed in unwrapped and will be transported in blankets. All works will be handed out unwrapped so artists will need to bring their own wrapping when they collect their work.
