Important news regarding transport
***Do not send in works until you have been notified if you are pre-selected***
For artists who have already entered or for those who are still weighing up their options, the question of shipping costs is usually high on the agenda.
Following pre-selection artists will be advised if they have been selected as a finalist. It is then that the arrangements for shipping need to be made. Some of you will hand deliver, others will use Bus/Coach Services, Pack ‘n Send or Australia Post (package those corners carefully!)
However, if you are considering a professional art carrier, then please read on!
Naturally costs vary according to distance, but you need to have confidence that your important work will be handled with care by art industry carriers.
