TERAVARNA’s Website offers a venue for advertising artworks of and from artists, galleries, dealers, and private collectors. We are not involved in initiating, executing, or finalizing any sales that result from such advertisements, and Our service is limited to allowing visitors and interested buyers to browse or offer for sale artworks created by individuals other than Us. In the process, the Website simply acts as an intermediary, facilitating direct communication lines between artists and art lovers, who could act as potential art sellers and potential art buyers. We reserve the absolute right to deny or decline to advertise or offer for sale artworks from any artists at any time in order to meet Website standards. In Our sole discretion, We also reserve the right to modify or update Our services without advance notice to Our Website visitors.
Age and Eligibility Requirements
By its very nature, art can, and often will, deal with explicit content. For instance, visuals showcased on TERAVARNA could portray pornography, sexuality, nudity, drug use, violence, vulgarity, or other graphic content. By accessing our website and using our services, you affirm that you are 18 years of age or older. If we believe that your information is incorrect or incomplete, we may prevent you from accessing our site, terminate or suspend your account, or otherwise limit or restrict your use of service.
Juried Art Competition
TERAVARNA’s Website offers the opportunity for Juried Art Competitions to all eligible artists, usually on a bimonthly basis. Artist selection is done by an independent jury on an ongoing basis, and can take up to 1 week, depending on a variety of factors. Once the selection process is complete, all winning artists are notified by email. Both the type of prizes as well as the cash money awarded for each may differ on a monthly basis. Typically, a total cash prize of $1,000 to $2,000 is given to 35 to 65 artists at each competition, although this may vary depending on the number of artists participating, quality of artworks submitted, competition theme, and other factors. The categories in which cash is usually awarded are First, Runner-Up, Merit, and Talent Prize. No cash awards are given to artists in the Honorable Mention and Finalist categories. Certificates of Recognition are distributed to all artists listed in the competition, regardless of prize category.
TERAVARNA doesn't promise entrant artists to win a prize in money or money's worth in any of its competitions. Only artists selected by an independent jury from a pool of applicants will be eligible to receive awards.
To maintain compliance with the policies of its financial partners and to satisfy U.S. laws, TERAVARNA is unable to engage in any form of transaction with individuals and businesses from Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Russia, and the Crimea Region.
The total cash prize awarded, and the number of recipient artists are subject to change. TERAVARNA, at its sole discretion and without prior notice, may vary the amount of cash prize and the categories for which such prizes are awarded. For instance, in the future, artists winning in the First, Runner-Up, Merit or Talent categories might not be awarded any cash prize, or there may be additional or less categories for which cash prizes are announced.
For all joint winners of cash prizes, the money will be split evenly among contestants within that category. Similarly, if a category does not receive enough entries to be judged fairly within that category alone, it will be considered alongside other categories with sufficient entries.
Without exception, all cash prizes are paid to artists via PayPal, so they are advised to open and maintain an active PayPal account where they are able to receive money. We understand that this is not conducive to all artists in our competition, like in certain countries where PayPal is not in existence, or where the artists do not wish to or cannot open a PayPal account, etc. Nonetheless, all fund transfer to artists can solely be made via PayPal.
All artists winning cash prizes will be notified via email. TERAVARNA will use the email address that is on file at the time of the artist’s application, so it is imperative to ensure that there are no typographical errors and that the artist is able to receive email from us. This email will serve as the only notification the artist will receive from our gallery announcing the winners of the competition.
Upon receiving such notification, the artist is required to submit, within a week after the start of the competition, a winner profile form with detailed information, including full name, country of origin, a valid PayPal email, and the prize category won by the artist. Any duplicate submission of this form, for any reason, will be considered to be a deceptive practice, and TERAVARNA, in its sole discretion, will reserve the right to deny the artist any cash prize won in that competition. Likewise, misleading information on the form, including information that the artist has won a higher category prize of greater value, will be subject to denial of any cash prize. Repeated instances of such practice will result in permanent ban from TERAVARNA’s website.
Occasionally, PayPal may charge a small fee of 3 to 5% of the value of the prize money awarded to the artist. Similarly, when remitting international money transfers worldwide, or when paying the artist in a foreign currency, there may be transaction fees imposed by PayPal or the recipient’s financial institution. By participating in our competitions, the artist agrees that any third-party fees may be deducted from the final funds received by them. TERAVARNA will not be responsible for such fees imposed on the transfer and is not under any obligation to reimburse the artist for that difference.
Upon receipt of the acceptably filled out winner profile submission form the prize money won in by the artist in a competition will be transferred via PayPal to the artist’s account, or to the account of an authorized representative acting on behalf of, and with explicit written permission from, the artist. TERAVARNA will facilitate this transfer after approximately 3 weeks from the competition's start date. As such, we may choose to not respond to any inquiry we receive concerning prize money disbursement before that date has passed. Further, in the event the transaction gets canceled or reversed by PayPal during transfer due to, including but not limited to, the artist’s inability to open and maintain a functional PayPal account in a timely manner, or if PayPal will not allow such money transfer for legal reasons or due to international monetary bans and freezes, we will be unable to complete the transaction. We will try to inform the artist of such failed transfer immediately upon being notified to us by PayPal. However, that notification will only be in the form of an email correspondence. Hence, it is advisable that artists save email@example.com as a “safe” email address so that such time-sensitive notice is not transferred to the Junk or Spam folder or otherwise is blocked by an internal firewall. Regardless, in no circumstance shall any prize money be transferred to the artist (or the artist’s representative) 30 days after the start of the competition. We regret that at that point, any unclaimed or untransferable funds will be forfeited so as to efficiently allocate funds to support TERAVARNA’s continuing support of maximum artist participation in future art competitions.
TERAVARNA’s Website offers the opportunity for Solo Exhibitions to all eligible artists. Artist selection is done by an independent jury on an ongoing basis, and can take anywhere between 1 day to 2 weeks, depending on when the jury is able to meet. Once the selection process is complete, in the event an artist is invited to participate in our Solo Exhibition, the artist will be able to choose from VIP, PRO, or ELITE plans.
A. VIP Plan: A monthly exhibition during which the artist will be represented by TERAVARNA. The cost is $25 monthly (non-refundable) for 10 images of artworks, bio, artist statement, and any other information such as artist website, Instagram handle, email, etc. Given the excessive amount of effort TERAVARNA puts in towards creating a professional portfolio, the artist is required to remain in this plan for at least 6 months.
B. PRO Plan: A one-year exhibition during which the artist will be represented by TERAVARNA. The cost is $150 annually (non-refundable) for 10 images of artworks, bio, artist statement, and any other information such as artist website, Instagram handle, email, etc. The artist may renew the plan annually for the then current price if they like, and sell their artworks if they choose to. TERAVARNA does NOT charge any commission so artists will be able to keep 100% of the price.
C. ELITE Plan: A permanent (lifetime) exhibition during which the artist will be continuously represented by TERAVARNA. The cost is a one-time $350 (non-refundable) for 10 images of artworks, bio, artist statement, and any other information such as artist website, Instagram handle, email, etc. As in the PRO Plan, the artist will be able to sell their artworks from our website. TERAVARNA does NOT charge any commission so artists will be able to keep 100% of the price. Since there are no recurrent payments, this is the best value option for all serious artists and photographers. Please keep in mind that since space is limited, only a select few artists are given the opportunity to hold a permanent spot on our gallery walls.
D. TEMP Plan: The last option is a free one-month exhibition on TERAVARNA's gallery walls, commencing on the 1st of the month and ending on the last day of the same month. The artist will be able to showcase 5 images of artworks but will not be able to list works for sale, or sell them from our website. This plan is currently unavailable due to the substantial number of artist applications received. If we resume this in the future, there is expected to be substantial waiting times.
All artist fees and plan contributions go towards paying out cash prizes to the most deserving artists in our monthly Art Competitions and yearly Solo Exhibitions, as well as covering ads, outreach, and other administrative costs. As such, our fees are not refundable under any circumstance.
