Please note that the size of any artwork being displayed at this exhibition, with frame (if any), cannot exceed 40 in (about 1 m) in width and 60 in (about 1.5 m) in height.

Artworks painted on other materials than stretched canvas will need to be framed, because they cannot be exhibited without a frame. We can frame them in Budapest for a nominal framing fee.

Shipping and insurance of all artworks are the artist's responsibility. Detailed instructions will be provided to winners shortly after winner selection. The instructions will contain information on how to send the artworks lawfully through Hungarian customs so that artists are not taxed immediately on import. Artists may choose to ship their artworks either in stretched or unstretched condition; if they are shipped unstretched, however, a nominal stretching fee will apply depending on the size of the canvas. All packing and labelling instructions will also be provided to the artists.

Please be prepared to provide the net price you want to get for your artworks. The selling price will be determined by Golden Duck Gallery after add commission and taxes.
