Terms and Conditions of Entry

The information in this section contains the terms and conditions under which listings are accepted. When you submit a listing form to be included on the Arts Canterbury website, it is understood that you have read and accept these. Arts Canterbury reserves the right to vary the Terms and Conditions. In such case, any changes will be made known through the website.

 Listings are open to all Canterbury artists. There are, however, some requirements that are summarised in the following definitions –

Art is as defined in the Arts Council of New Zealand Toi Aotearoa Act 1994 – "Arts includes all forms of creative and interpretative expression". While this definition is inclusive, the site is to profile original artwork. Therefore, it would exclude mass-market commercial art, reproducers of other artists' work and pre-purchased manufactured items. Whilst taking an inclusive and liberal attitude, Arts Canterbury reserves the right to reject work that it considers offensive and unsuitable for general public viewing.

Canterbury is that area of New Zealand that is bounded by the Clarence River in the north, the Waitaki River in the south and the main divide of the Southern Alps in the west; and comprises the local authorities of Ashburton, Christchurch (including Banks Peninsula), Hurunui, Kaikoura, McKenzie, Selwyn, Timaru, Waimakariri and Waimate.

A Canterbury Artist is one who has a particular association with the region, be it by way of residency, education or reputation. For an artist currently living outside the region, a significant body of work needs to have been created in or from this relationship with Canterbury. Most importantly, in keeping with the intent of the website, work by the artist must be able to be accessed for viewing or purchasing from within the Canterbury region.

A Canterbury Gallery is one which is located in the Canterbury region of New Zealand, regardless of the origin of the art shown in it, or which, if located outside of the Canterbury region, includes art by Canterbury artists.
