If there is a genuine aesthetic reason for the work to remain unframed, the entry will be accepted subject to the following conditions:
i) you will be required to provide a reusable and robust packing case, or equivalent, for the protection of your work that is designed for safe transportation, handling and storage, and that will not cause damage to other works;
ii) that if you enter work outside of the Rules & Guidelines, it is entered at your own risk. The Trinity Buoy Wharf Working Drawings Prize will not accept any liability for any loss or damage that may occur in the normal course of handling.
iii) if selected for exhibition, you will be required to provide suitable packaging for your work while in storage and during transportation throughout the exhibition and tour, or to provide a frame or other means of presentation as recommended by the organisers.
iv) works that cannot be mirror plated, once selected, must be accompanied by full hanging instructions and if selected for exhibition you may be required to supply suitable fixings.

Please note that some frame finishes (such as gesso, lacquer, etc) are fragile and are not durable for handling purposes. If you decide to present your work in these types of frames, we strongly recommend you wrap the frame edges in stretch wrap film. Perspex frames should be submitted in a packing case for additional protection. Metal frames and clip frames are not allowed as these can cause injuries during the normal course of handling.
