BiG-i Art Project Call for Entries 2015

“A new world awaits beyond the door of possibilities”

■ What is the BiG-i Art Project?
Art has the ability to connect people. Using this ability, the BiG-i Project encourages communication among all people, with or without disabilities, to share happiness and joy with each other. This project intends to help those with disabilities find their potentials and realize their dreams by following three concepts:
- Offering people with disabilities opportunities to engage in artistic activities;
- Discovering and fostering talented artists; and
- Supporting and promoting activities for artists with disabilities.

■ Entry and Selection Process
Original works will be judged to ensure that their true appeal is not lost in or misrepresented by photographs.

< Applicants shortlisted for the final selection>
Please send the original work (actual, physical work) to BiG-i for the final selection, following the instructions below.

Delivery method:
Applicants are responsible for packing and arranging for the delivery of his/her work to BiG-i.
- To protect work from damage during transit, applicants are asked to ensure their work is securely packed.
- The works priced at ¥10,000 or more on the CIF basis (CIF= total cost, i.e., the work’s price plus insurance and freight) must not be sent by postal mail or international express courier, because these cannot obtain customs clearance on a re-export basis. Even if the work clears customs, customs duties may be charged upon its return. In this case, such customs duties shall be paid by the applicant.
- After the judging, works will be returned to applicants in the packing materials they arrived in. Unless instructed otherwise, delivery will be by regular (for non-artwork, “fragile” items) package delivery services.

Others:
While the organizer shall exercise due care to prevent damage to delivered works during handling and judging, damage to works while in the organizer’s care shall be compensated within the coverage of the “all risk” policy purchased by the organizer.
