Your Submission

Is there a fee to participate?
No, all we ask is you submit your work on the website and share on Instagram or Facebook with #ING17art @ingcreatives
How do I use the templates? 
Use the templates in any way that you're inspired! All that we ask is that you use 1 of the 3 templates in your submission and that you keep the branding information in the corners of the templates. 
Does my submission have to be in a specific Medium? 
The creative call is open to interpretation in any medium. However you have to submit your work digitally. 
Can I submit more than once? 
You can submit up to 5 files. This will not increase your chances but will give the jury more choices when making selections.  
Are there limitations to the files I submit? 
The size limit is 50MB for all 5 submissions together. Please only use MP4, AVI, JPEG, JPG or GIF files. 
What will happen to my Artwork/Submission? 
Your artwork will be used to promote you on our website, your artist page, our Creative Guide Book and on our social media channels (print and online). In addition we may or may not use your work as part of our advertisement for the festival. 
Does -ING protect my work with copyright? 
Generally the artists work is the property of the artist by law. As you have not transferred your works rights to us it is your responsibility to add the copyright in the Metadata of your submission (you can do this using Photoshop or Bridge). 
Do I have to have Instagram and does my profile have to be public? 
In order for us to see your work, your profile has to be public. If you do not use Instagram, you need to share your work on Facebook. For either Instagram or Facebook, tag -ING Creatives and use #ING17art. We cannot consider submissions that are not submitted on our website AND on Instagram or Facebook.
