Entries will be selected based in part on the judge’s scores and according to how the work fits in the space available and in the context of a coherent, curated exhibition.

Artwork exhibited may be offered for sale, if the artist wishes, and it is up to the artist to determine the price at which it will be offered.

We plan an active Public Relations campaign involving direct mail, social media and print media. We will provide exhibiting artists with material that they can email to their contacts to encourage them to attend. A Cocktail Reception is planned and artists are encouraged to attend to meet the organizers and sponsors and discuss their work with interested visitors.

Proceeds

We have chosen to use all proceeds from the contest and exhibition to support the Center for Great Apes. The Center for Great Apes’ mission is to provide a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or who are no longer wanted as pets. The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes in need of lifetime care. Please visit their website to learn more http://www.centerforgreatapes.org

ALL donations, including contest entry fees, go directly to support the Center. We fund our events either through commercial sponsorship or through our own donations.

The Center for Great Apes is solely the beneficiary of the funds from this Contest; it has no role in the organization or management of this contest. The Center for Great Apes cannot be held responsible for any issue relating to this Contest.

Communication

  • Through our website http://www.art4apes.com. We post a selection of entries online and blog about the artists and their work.
  • Through our Facebook page http://facebook.com/art4apes - we encourage you to “friend” our page. We regularly post as many new entries as we can.
