since you're on the council Rosie, you should be able to elaborate on the amount of entries- % of entries actually shown from non members, the income generated from failed entries, the actual cost of the event, how much is offset by sponsors, All the prizes are sponsored, so that's something already covered. How much is the ulster museum charging to host?
just interested, your statement of 'not cheap' doesn't really mean a lot
RUA , what income is generated by failed entries? I love statisics.
Paul's success is PHENOMINAL i measure success in record cover designs, Paul has had 58 of his designs used,.. so far !!

Paul, I am answering you with "ambiguity" because I don't actually live in Belfast so I am not able to attend every council meeting. I wish you all the best with your work and every success without having to be in ego boosting exhibitions etc
Phenomenal is overstating a little maybe Ben hahaha
but I've actually worked on over 70 releases.
and thanks Rosie, I'll do that.
Hey 207 new views on this discussion in TWO days & the whole thing simmered for A YEAR !
Having been successful over several years, i started getting either an application form sent to me by post or an email application sent to me but after my comment that all stopped. It shows one should not jest in such exaulted presence of an academecian, but thats life in the art world. I was once warned by a art gallery owner that he could make or break me. I am still here at the coal face but I am still creating!

did you apply James, or have you just been de-listed?
I really don't understand the reverence around such things.
I wouldnt read too much into that, James. I've done all right myself last few years, but they never never post stuff out to me. I just go into the mixer like everyone else. There's too much credence put on all this. Its only a group Show / Competition. Either enter or don't. No one is forcing anybody. They are not Gods.
yeah, I'm pretty sure there a few places that won't be showing anything I ever do hahaha
