Each year the organisers will appoint a pre-selection panel to review entries.
The panel will initially review and assess all submissions received, and will decide which works will be invited to exhibit at the Art Show.
The show judges may or may not be part of the pre-selection panel.
All decisions on acceptances are final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into.
Artists will be notified which of their works have been accepted to be exhibited prior to the opening of the show.
Each year the organisers appoint external Art Show judges for the show.
Judging takes place after the Art Show installation is complete.
