Arts Law regularly reviews the terms and conditions of competitions and rates them out of five stars. Our review looks broadly at the terms and conditions of a competition. In particular, we look closely at how a competition deals with an entrant’s copyright and moral rights and consider this in light of the prize. Entrants should always take into account the possible profile-raising which may result from being a finalist or winner.

In December 2017 I took my first Artist in the Black trip as the newest solicitor at Arts Law, along with Arts Law CEO Robyn Ayres and AITB Coordinator – and artist – Bibi Barba. We were destined for Baluk Arts Centre near the Mornington Peninsula. We started our journey being picked up at our accommodation in the city centre by one of Baluk’s artists, Lisa Waup, and drove along the highway from Melbourne – exclaiming over the creative public art pieces dotting the edges of the road – to Frankston.
