Can you get In the Frame?

Posted by on 26 February 2016 | 0 Comments

Tasman residents aged between 13 – 25 years to submit images to “In the Frame” a public art display opportunity on Queen Street, Richmond, throughout 2016.

With assistance from the Tasman Creative Communities Scheme, Arts Council Nelson [ACN] is installing a large format frame onto a wall on Queens Street (beside the Library entrance) and is looking to select six images to fill the frame, each for an eight-week period over the coming year.

ACN invites young people who live in the Tasman region (or who may attend a Tasman College) to email a photograph of up to three works they would like to enter. That is all you need to do and there is no entry fee!

Images should be in landscape format as the frame will be fixed. There is no ‘theme’ or size restrictions. Images can be in any medium or style as long as they are suitable to be photographed and reproduced in a large format print at our cost.

From the entries received, ACN shall select six pieces to go into the frame…

There are no prizes other than selected works being publicly profiled for a two month period, however selected artists shall be gifted the mounted large format print valued at $180 to own once it has been displayed.

  • Entries must reach ACN by Thursday 17 March 2016 and should be sent to:
    • Please include your name, the title of the work and a contact phone number.
    • Please refer to the Terms and Conditions below.
    • More information is also available at

In the Frame - Terms and Conditions:

  • There is no ‘theme’. ACN aim to select six final works that represent an interesting variety of visual responses from young people
  • Images must be original and created by the person submitting the work. Selected artists may display work under their own name, a pseudonym or remain anonymous  
  • Images must be free of any copyright issues or others intellectual property rights.
  • Preferred entry is by email image less than 2mb. Please contact ACN on 03 5484640 if this is not possible for you for any reason and you arrange to have the original dropped off for inclusion in the selection process.
  • Ideally images will be in an ‘A’ size landscape format (A4, A3, A2, etc.) to enable images to be enlarged proportionally to fit the frame. Should an image be chosen that is not in this format ACN reserves the right to crop the work as required to fit.
  • The selection panel’s decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into
  • Images that may cause offence to anyone will be excluded
  • All entrants will be notified of the outcome before 31st March 2016.
  • Original work that is selected, must be available for photographing by ACN (unless a quality high resolution image can be supplied)
  • In the unlikely event that a print of selected work is irreparably damaged whilst on public display, ACN cannot be held liable for replacing the work for continued display or later gifting the work to the artist
  • In submitting work to this project, selected entrants understand and consent to their image being on public display for a two month period at any point over the next twelve months and possibly being reproduced for promotional purposes of this initiative.
