Photographs are not returned after assessment

The photographs are not returned to the sender, nor do we have the opportunity to preserve this material. If your contribution is included in the exhibition, one of the photographs is printed in the catalogue, but is not preserved. Submitting photographs and applications means that you give Liljevalch permission to publish the image(s) in the catalogue and on Liljevalch's website without compensation. This also means that you agree that the photograph is offered to the press for free publication in connection with the media coverage of Vårsalongen.

How to get paid when selling someone

When selling the issued grants, Liljevalchs charges a commission of 30 percent. The sales price that you enter on the application form should therefore include the commission. You will be paid, less the sales commission, when the buyer/buyers have paid in full.
