Property Retention and Distribution
If selected, ManneqArt will hold your artwork from April to November of the competition year. You will be contacted if there is any expressed interest in purchasing your design, or for extended display of your work.
Upon receipt, your work will be documented by ManneqArt (photographs, video, etc.). Any such imagery will be offered (free) back to the artists. In addition, ManneqArt reserves the right to use any images/documentation submitted to the competition or taken by ManneqArt. If the competing design wins any sponsored awards (and subsequent prize money), the intellectual property rights of the images are shared between the Artist, Award Sponsor and ManneqArt. All three legal entities may use the images without consulting the other two. Ownership of the physical design still rests with the artist unless otherwise negotiated.
Each year, ManneqArt designates a set of themes to help guide artists in their design creations. Use the following map to help determine a well-fitting route for your work.
Note: Each submission, per individual or team, must select only one theme and category for their head-to-toe look. For example, a complete Hair, Makeup, and Costume look under the Fire theme and Luminous category.
