Swancon Fan Art Show

The Swancon Thirty Six | Natcon Fifty Fan Art Show will run from Friday 22 April to Sunday 24 April, 2011. Reserve space for your pieces by sending through a registration form or email.

Works registered after 13 April might not find room at the show. Multiple entries are allowed, but space is limited so we will accept entries on a first-come-first-served basis, and the organisers reserve the right to limit an artist to reasonable numbers of entries. There will be a separate children’s (Under 12) stream within the art show with its own judging.

Artists are asked to advise what their display requirements will be and whether their work will be sold via the art sales or via auction. Please contact Linda to register your artwork. We will advise you about actual submission of pieces closer to Swancon.

You must state on the entry form if the piece is an original or a reproduction. Reproductions or prints from digitally created works are allowed, though only one copy of any particular piece may be hung. All work must be the original work of the artist. All reproduction rights remain the property of the artist. Works judged by the organisers to be offensive or libelous will not be permitted in the show. If you are in doubt as to whether your work is acceptable, please contact the organisers in advance. Swancon reserves the right to refuse any entry for any reason it sees fit. Artists are responsible for organising their own insurance. Whilst the best of care will be taken at all times, Swancon will not accept liability for damages to your art work.

Financial Matters
The fee to enter the show is $2 per work except for Children’s Art which will be free of charge. These fees help to offset room, display, equipment and handling costs. Swancon will collect all sales revenue and distribute the proceeds to the artists by cash or cheque. Payments will be finalised no more than six weeks from the end of the convention. If you mail your artwork in and it is not sold or collected from the show, you must provide payment to cover the costs of return postage and ensure packaging is reusable. Artists are responsible for their own insurance.

Fundraising by art sales
Works entered in the show for the purpose of fundraising are exempt from entry fees and sales commission. Unless otherwise specified, it is the artist’s responsibility to distribute funds from sales. It is also the artist’s responsibility to label the work appropriately.
