Please do not attach any fixings to your work. You must remove any existing fixings. We will not be able to accept any works that have been inappropriately framed or mounted
  4. All entries must have two labels. Labels should clearly state artist’s name, artwork title, medium use and, if applicable, price of the artwork. One label must be taped flat to the back of the work, the other label attached to string, which is securely attached to the work and left dangling. We cannot accept work without labels.

  8. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council can accept no liability for loss or damage to works submitted for the Open Art Exhibition. You are advised to arrange your own insurance for any artwork submissions.
