The BFAC prefers entries that are for sale. Please state a price reflecting current market value for your artwork. For any artwork sold, the BFAC shall retain twenty-five percent (25%) of the selling price as commission and shall remit seventy-five percent (75%) of the selling price to the artist. Any “Not for Sale” entries should be clearly marked “NFS” with the insured value entered in the registration form and included on the back of artwork. The BFAC assumes reproduction rights for promotional purposes only. If a piece is sold between entry and notification, the piece is still eligible to compete in the show. However, if the piece cannot be sent to the BFAC for display in the show, it will be withdrawn from the competition. A replacement piece may be eligible at the discretion of the BFAC.
