Frequently asked questions

PARTICIPATING AS AN ARTIST

When can I register for the next TAE Call For Artists?


Our Call for Artists goes out at different times each year. Our announcement schedule depends on circumstances surrounding opening dates. We try to allow ample time for our artists to create their work. Our main communication is via Twitter. Twitter Art Exhibit organizers will be tweeting details about the next event on the Twitter account page here @twitrartexhibit. TAE will follow up with social media interaction via our Facebook fan page, our Instagam page, our new YouTube channel, and lastly, via our email subscribe list to get the word out. Please be sure to follow us and subscribe so that you don't miss out! Our Announcement on YouTube for TAE21: https://youtu.be/Wc-3PmRWvjw Due to the COVID pandemic, David Sandum, TAE Founder, could not attend the TAE20 event in Myrtle Beach, so he gave his opening speech via live stream from his studio in Norway. It is a TAE tradition that David announces where the following year's TAE will take place during the opening ceremony.




How many cards can I submit?


One card per artist. Although we want to make this the biggest international exhibit possible, the number of entries accepted will depend on overall participation and available space at the local level. Currently, our goal is to include one card per participating artist (please do not send more than one).




Is there an entry fee?


No, this is a charity exhibition. There is no entry fee and every participant, artist, and organizer is an unpaid volunteer. We are all pooling our talents for a good cause.




When is the Deadline?


The deadline for TAE21 is has been extended to the cards being postmarked by February 26, 2021. (We realize there have been shipping delays, so we are doing our best to accomodate that.) Each curator/organizer sets his/her own deadline. Please read the Call for Artists carefully to find out what the cut-off date is for the next exhibition. A good rule of thumb is to allow at least 10 days for shipping if you reside within the country where the exhibition is taking place. For artists residing outside the country, we suggest you give yourself at least two weeks. If there is a problem or concern, please use the contact information provided on the Call for Artists to reach the local organizer.




What if I don’t agree with something here, or don’t want to be included in a video or a book?


You are of course free to disagree, and in that case, simply refrain from participating. We are constantly receiving feedback from participants, and we strive to improve the experience for everyone involved. Keep in mind that the Call for Artists and these FAQs constitute our “user agreement” and that by submitting your artwork to us, you agree to our terms and may be included in a book and/or video about the exhibition. Please keep in mind that many organizations would in fact charge artists to be included in their publications. Any published materials will be created in the spirit of promoting artists and supporting the TAE organization, whose board members are contributing hundreds and hundreds of hours to the project without pay. TAE board members personally incur many out-of-pocket expenses (for example, website fees, marketing, and publicity costs, printing costs for postcards, and other promotional materials, etc.), which are currently impossible to recoup. As we look to the future, we must think of practical ways to support the expansion of the TAE concept. If you are uncomfortable with anything here, please do not participate.




What media and genre are acceptable?


Acceptable Media: Please use spray fixative for loose mediums and remember to properly prime/gesso your surfaces if you work with oils, allowing them to fully dry before shipping. Every year we have to peel artwork out of envelopes that have stuck! Linocuts, etchings, silkscreen, woodcuts, lithographs (printmaking) are accepted if they are the correct size, hand-signed, and originals. We are also accepting Digital Art if it is of a high standard, an original created for TAE and printed to a high quality on the required paper or card. NOT ALLOWED : A printed promotional postcard does not constitute an original piece of art and will not be accepted. And please, nothing perishable, toxic or otherwise harmful. NO VERY THICK 3D postcards! These cannot be hung in the exhibition. Genre: As the TAE events are open to the public and families with children may be present, we ask that you consider making the subject matter appropriate for ALL audiences and that no artwork with an offensive or an ‘adult’ theme be submitted. The definition of “offensive’ and “appropriate” is obviously up for debate, but please use common sense. The Curator and the TAE board has the right to not accept any piece of artwork into TAE that does not comply with the above requirements.




Do I need to reside in the country where the exhibit is taking place?


No. People from all over the world can participate in the Twitter Art Exhibit.




Do I send original art or a print of my original artwork?


Only original artwork is accepted. Please review the Artist's Checklist for acceptable media and genre. (You must create or log in to your member account page to view). Head to TAE21 Information in your account pages.




Where do I send my artwork?

The second confirmation email included a link to the " Artist's Checklist", which contains all the pertinent information for participation in the Twitter Art Exhibit.

First, be sure to officailly register for TAE 21 by heading to this page and filling out the registration form: https://www.twitterartexhibit.org/event-details/cheltenham-tae21-call-for-artists To participate as a TAE artist, we are asking that you create a site member account so that you can retrieve all the relevant info you will need for participating in the exhibition. We have found that this is much easier for the artists to manage when searching for details months after you've registered. If you have not created a site member account yet, click Site Member Log In in the top right corner of the webpage header. Select, " Sign Up", where it says, " New to This Site". You do not HAVE to use the same email address you used when registering for a TAE Call For Artists, but if you use a different one, then you will not see your registration status in your member pages. If you've already created an account with a different email, simply create a new account to match the email you used to register with. To retreive the TAE Artist's Checklist, be sure you're logged in to the website. Then click on the 'arrow' by your name for the drop down menu of choices and head to "TAE 21 Information"

To retrieve the Artist's Checklist that includes size, mailing address, requirements, etc, be sure you're logged in to the website. Then click on the 'arrow' by your name for the dropdown menu of choices and head to "TAE 21 Information". For quick reference, here is a PDF template for the exact dimensions required for your art (16cm x 12cm) or 6.3in x 4.7in: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uck_SQdd5es7Zj-mBof3HEK7-vsrizN6/view?usp=sharing




Do I need a Twitter account and Instagram account to participate?


It's required that you either have a Twitter account OR an instagram account prior to registering. Here are step by step instructions on how to open a Twitter account: https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Twitter-Account And should you choose Instagram instead, here are step by step instructions on how to open an Instagram account: https://www.wikihow.com/Create-an-Instagram-Account Once you've created an account with one of these services, then create a site member account on our website by clicking on the " Site Member Log In" link in our header and then, " Sign Up". Next, head to our registration form. You'll see the red " Call for Artists" button near the top of our home page.





CARD SALES

How much will my card sell for?


Sales of individual cards or in packs of 4 will be determined with each exhibition. The typical price will be around $40 (USD), £30 (GBP), or €33 (EUR) per card for instance. There is a discount offered when buying in packs of 4. Many, if not all of these cards are worth a lot more, we know, but this will allow more of the public to purchase them and raise the required funds for the charity.




What happens to unsold work?


Additional cards left over at the end of the official event and sale will be donated to the charity to use for further fundraising. NO donated card is ever thrown away and is treated with great respect!




How do we know that the funds are going to the charity?


They have made it so far, with proceeds from postcard sales going to our charities. This is one of our biggest concerns. We will do everything in our power to ensure that our initiative does not exploit anyone and that schemers do not make off with our concerted efforts.




How will I know if my card has arrived or has been sold?


We will notify you by tweeting your Twitter handle once we have received your card and it has been processed. Once the card has sold we will notify you again the same way. Please, if you could refrain from asking us about sales and arrival of cards as it is time-consuming for the volunteers to answer individual questions outside of the normal process. If, however, it has been a long time and you have not heard from us, certainly, contact us and we will look into it for you.





THE EXHIBITION OPENING

Will there be a YouTube video or Social Media exposure of the opening?


We've recently created a YouTube channel for the pupose of sharing our events via live streams and recordings. We hope to utilize it for TAE21. We also created a live streaming page on our website here: www.twitterartexhibit.org/live. (Note: Due to scheduling conflicts with our web editor, we may not be recording "live" onto our website for TAE21 and opt to share recordings via social media instead. We will keep our artist's posted.) We will also be sharing live streams in various other locations, such as Periscope, Facebook, and Twitter. Please follow our Twitter feed here to stay in the know of where our videos and streams will be appearing. Please note that these peripheral projects are extremely time-consuming and will depend on the local curator/organizer’s, and teams’ resources, so we cannot guarantee when these will be available following the exhibition.




How can I help spread the word?


This is your exhibit! Please post a picture of your card on Twitter before you send it, mentioning our official Twitter account and using the hashtags, #TAE21 and #TAEfamily. Please follow us! We appreciate RT’s, and we will try to communicate as much as possible on Twitter publicly and through the media. Don’t forget to include this event on your resume as a group exhibition once we have confirmed your participation. You can also interact on our Facebook and Instagram pages and share our posts on social media.

(You will also see the log in link in the website header at top right.) By creating a site member account, you'll be able to retrieve all the important exhibition details, such as deadlines, requirements, and where to send your artwork. (The Artist's Checklist is located in the dropdwn menu under your login in name.) Scroll down to " How to Register". Next, be sure to click the [ + ] under the " Quantity" column to bring the number 0 to 1. This means only YOU are registering yourself. If a friend wishes to register with you, they must register themselves separately. Then click the " Checkout" button. You'll then be directed to our checkout page where we'll collect the required details.Note: If your login member account email matches the email address you use on your registration form, then you will see this registration as confirmed in your account pages once all info is filled out and you click the " continue" button.

If you didn't receive any confirmation of registration, please contact Carole, our tech support, here: admin@twitterartexhibit.org.




On my Member Pages, my registration isn't appearing.


There are four reasons why this may occur (listed in the order of what is most likely). #1: You created a site member account AFTER registering for a TAE event. Our member app recognizes your actions on the website only after creating your account. You can fix this yourself by making sure you are logged in and then re-register for the TAE event. Then email us as admin@twitterartexhibit.org asking to cancel your original registration for the reason of having your confirmation stored on your account. It's not an issue on our end if your event doesn't appear in your profile. Your profile pages are meant for you. So, if it doesn't bother you that it's not appearing, then no problems at all. The imortant thing is that you are indeed registered. All is well on our end if you received a confirmatioin from us. #2: Your registration wasn't complete. If you didn't receive two confirmations from us, one from notifications@wixevents.com ( a no-reply email address) and another from admin@twitterartexhibit.org, at the time you registered, then this is likey the issue. Please go through the registration process again. You should receive a confirmation of registration immediately if it was succesful. #3: You asked us to register for you on your behalf. If we filled out your registration information for you, either before or after you became officailly registered you created a site member account, then your registration will not appear on your profile page. Your profile page will only reflect the actions YOU take on our website. #4: You created a site member account using a different email address than the email you registered with. To remedy, simply create a second account using the email address you registered with. (Look for the confirmation emails you received from us. Wherever we sent it is the email address you used to register.) There is no way to change your log in email address, so it's necessary to create an additional one to match the email you registered with.




I didn't receive a confirmation of my registration.


If you filled out a registration form, then two confirmation emails are auto-sent to the email address you used on your registration form. Be sure you are checking the email account you signed up with. You should have received a confirmation from notifications@wixevents.com and also admin@twitterartexhibit.org If you still didn't receive any confirmation notices, and only received a " Welcome to Our Site" confirmation, then it appears you've successfully created a site member account on the website, but have yet to successfully register for the call to artists.
Head to the HOME page and click on the Registration Button. ​​​​​​​ Scroll down below the TAE21 details for Artist Call: Click [+] on the registration form to change "0" to "1" under the QTY column, then click "Checkout." You'll fill out your details on the following page and then click " Continue". Then you should be registered. If you still didn't receive any confirmation of registration, please contact Carole, our tech support, here: admin@twitterartexhibit.org.




I've participated in many TAE events, why is only one showing up in my Member Pages?


With our new website rebuild in the early part of 2020, we created a Member Account area where one didn't exist before. Any actvity prior to 2020, by our artists and customers will not appear in the Member pages.




I read "How do I register..", but I'm still having problems registering.


I'm sorry you're having trouble registering. If you email us at admin@twitterartexhibit.org your Full name, region, and country you are from, and either a Twitter handle, Instagram handle, or both, Carole, our tech support will get you registered and in the system. In the meantime, be sure that you create a site member account by clicking the login link in the top right corner of our website header.




Why is there a '$' sign on the registration form?


The ' $' is meaningless. Registration is free. The form is basicallly stating $0 to register. If you click the [ + ] under the " Quantity" column to bring the number 0 to 1. This means only YOU are registering yourself. If a friend wishes to register with you, they must register themselves separately. Then click the " Checkout" button. You'll then be directed to our checkout page where we'll collect the required details.




Can you register for me? I'm having web troubles.

  • Where we are entering into a contract with you or performing our obligations under it, as when you buy TAE products and services.
  • Where it is necessary to protect life or health (for example in the case of medical emergency suffered by an individual at one of our TAE events) or a safeguarding issue which requires us to share your information with the emergency services.
  • Where it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others’ legitimate interests (as long as what the information is used for is fair and does not duly impact your rights).

When we legitimately process your personal information in this way, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example, where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Marketing Communications We may use your contact details to provide you with information about the TAE events we organise, our fundraising appeals and opportunities to support us, as well as the TAE products you can buy, if we think it may be of interest to you.

About the Artist, Site Member, and Customer data TAE Collects, can I retreive and/or delete my data history with TAE?


Yes. Legislation such as the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) and the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Brazil's Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD) are designed to secure the personal data of those regions' citizens. The CCPA gives consumers, who are defined as residents of California, rights over their personal information and how businesses may use that data. The GDPR is a regulation intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). This may affect businesses or websites that interact with EU citizens.
