What are the types of work (style, career stage) this exhibition is likely to select? So it is best to check the previous selection of artworks exhibited.
Also the judges can be different for every year so check their backgrounds and experience as it is likely to influence the decisions.
Read the Terms and Conditions again, if unsure about it e-mail or call the organiser. Check the maximum dimensions of work accepted, the framing requirements, the naming and labelling for the submission of digital images.
If handing in, check if you need to insure your work or if it is covered by the organiser’s insurance, check the packaging requirements and any labels that need completing.
Put the deadline in your diary (i.e. reminder in your phone) and schedule time for the submissions or if you are creating work specifically for the competition, schedule this in with plenty of time in advance.
Take professional photos of your work or research how to take the best photos you can with the tools you have available.
Proofread your application for spelling mistakes for your Artist’s Statement, proposal or summary.
Don’t undersell your work. If your work is for sale put a realistic price on it and take into account the organiser’s commission and any applicable VAT.
