FAQs:

Q: How many works of art may I submit?
A: You can submit three prints  (the entry fee remains the same whether you submit one or more). 

Q: What is the entry fee?
A: The entry fee is $20. The entry fee must be paid at the time works are submitted by cash, money order, or credit card. 

Q: Can I sell my work that is juried into the show?
A: Yes. When you bring your work in for the competition, we will ask you to fill out a form including many items of relevant information, including whether the work may be sold, and if so, at what price. Please note that the museum takes a 20% gallery commission on works sold, so be sure to factor that into your pricing.

Q: What is a purchase prize?
A: Some works of art will be selected for purchase, to become part of the Brigham City Museum's collection. 

Q: What do you mean by "ready to hang."
A: The item should have hangers to allow us to hang it on the wall, needing only a nail or two to do so. Claw hangers are not allowed. Please attach D or O rings and picture hanging wire. It does not need to be framed (gallery wrap is fine for canvas), but it does need to be completely ready to hang. For example:

Note the sturdy wire and D rings.

Wrong way to prepare your work for hanging
Claw hangers are not allowed. If you purchased a frame that came with claw hangers, please add your own hanging hardware.
Wrong Another wrong method of hanging
While the hangers themselves are fine, the ribbon is not, and the hangers should be fastened to a sturdy part of the frame, such as the wood, not cardboard backing.
 Another wrong hanger
Note the old, weak wire. The rings are also positioned too low.
