    By entering the 2018 Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival I affirm that I have read the entire prospectus and I agree to be bound by all terms outlined in it. If I am accepted, I understand that I am expected to participate in both the Plein Air painting competition and the exhibit and sale. My paintings, which I submit for judging, sale and exhibition, must be priced with a retail price commensurate with my normal pricing structure. A 40% commission on all works sold will be retained by the Parrsboro Creative Council and all sales will be handled by representatives of Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival at Parrsboro NS. Images of work that I enter into the competition as well as photos taken of me painting in the field may be used by Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival for publicity purposes. All reasonable precautions will be taken to ensure the safety and careful handling of the artwork. However, I recognize that I alone am responsible for the safety of my artwork. Licensing will be solely for the purpose of promoting the Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival at Parrsboro NS. We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not adhere to the rules and guidelines of the contest, mainly that the work shall be the artist’s work that is completed on site without the use of photography. All decisions of the Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival are considered final. Signed ______________________________________( electronic signature is accepted)
