    Each applicant (individual or group) may submit up to 2 works – each of which should be submitted in a separate application.

    The applicant must own the submitted artwork(s) and hold the copyright to them.

    Please, respect capital and lower cases.

    3 high-quality printable JPEG images. The total upload shouldn’t exceed 15MB.

    The names of the files should contain your name and the title of your work (ex. John Smith-Glass, John Smith-Glass2, John Smith-Glass3). The first image in the row will be the one printed in the biennale catalog.

    By sending those images, you authorize the biennale organizers to use them to present your work on the biennale website, on the biennale social media accounts, in the biennale official catalog, or in other printed presentations, at the biennale exhibition, as well as to communicate them to the press.
