By accepting the terms and conditions of a competition, artists should be aware that they are entering a legally binding contract. For more information on competition conditions see our free information sheet here.
We also invite competition organisers to contact Arts Law for best practice assistance on making their terms and conditions fairer for artists.
Under the Outdoor Sculpture Competition and Exhibition’s terms and conditions, all entrants are asked to provide a licence to the competition organisers to reproduce their works for purposes associated with the competition.
However the competition does not set a limit to the duration of the licences requested from the entrants. If it had done so, and respectively limited its licence to finalists or winners OR to uses associated with the competition only, plus each undertook to attribute the artists, it would have received 5 / 5 stars.
