Online/book exhibition run by graduate artists.

Deadline to submit: 16 August 

Exhibition runs from 17th - 31st

£3 submission fee to cover printing and shipment to the selected artists. Excess is donated to charity.

Open call for artwork of any kind, no restrictions on themes or medium. Selected artists will be featured on an artist instagram feature page (@darkcollectiveuk) and on a website, which will launch on the 20th August 

Artists work will be put together to create a booklet which will be mailed to all selected artists as a documentation of the exhibition. 

Selected artworks are able to be put up for sale if the artist so wishes, however this is purely between artist and buyer. Curator and DarkCollectiveUK have no liability or responsibility with the purchasing or shipment of artwork. 

There is a small £3 submission fee to cover the cost of printing the booklet, any excess submission fees will be donated to an animal sanctuary in the south west of England. If you wish to donate more to the sanctuary, you may add the amount to the submission fee (your extended donation won’t go towards to printing but directly to the sanctuary). Sadly if we don't receive the submissions fee we can not consider your application.
