ING Discerning Eye - Call For Entries

We are making some changes to the submission for The Discerning Eye 2017 to make the process easier for artists to submit. Please rest assured we are still committed to a physical submission as this process is fundamental to the selection process of Discerning Eye. However, this year we will be offering an optional initial online registration where artists will be able to pre pay for the number of entries that they are intending to submit. During online registration, each registered artist will be provided with a unique reference number and you will be able to log into your account in any time up until the deadline to add more works or change your submission details. Please click HERE to view entry fees and to register online.

If you would prefer not to register online beforehand, or if you have not registered the maximum number of works and would like to add more, you may still hand in your works to your selected Submission Point without being pre-registered and pay either by cheque or cash. Please click HERE to view the submission timetable.

Rules and guidelines can be viewed HERE.
