  1. The SUNDAYS RIVER VALLEY PROVINCIAL ARTS AND CULTURE FESTIVAL as hosted by SUNDAYS RIVER PRIMARY SCHOOL reserves the right to exhibit art works submitted for adjudication. RESULTS ARE NOT ON DISPLAY!!!
  1. Art work will be exhibited in a special marque tent on the premises for the duration of the festival.
  1. Art works will be returned to the relevant schools directly after the festival.
  1. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY: TEACHERS/PARENTS/LEARNERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO REMOVE ART WORK BEFORE THE TIME.  IT MAKES LIFE VERY DIFFICUILT FOR US WHEN WE HAVE TO RETURN THE PICTURES TO SCHOOLS. WE WILL HAND OVER THE DIPLOMAS/RESULTS & AWARDS TO SCHOOLS/TEACHERS DURING THE TWO WEEKS OF THE FESTIVAL.  YOU CAN TAKE THESE RESULTS WITH YOU.   TEACHERS CAN COLLECT ALL RESULTS FROM THE FESTIVAL SECRETARY.
  1. Candidates are also given the opportunity to sell their art work. On the entry form there is a special area where entrants can state their selling amount.  Cash of sold items will be secured and recorded and the cash will be delivered to all parties involved.  CONSULT WITH THE FESTIVAL SECRETARY REGARDING ANY QUERIES IN THIS REGARD.  Entrants should note that this part of the entry form MUST be signed by the entrant, teacher and parent for this purpose. There were quite a few excellent art works sold during the 2016 festivalWELL DONE TO MRS. LUANA BESTER FROM BERGSIG HIGH SCHOOL IN UITENHAGE WITH OUTSTANDING WORK!!!
  1. THE CLOSING DATE FOR ALL ART WORK IS MONDAY 19TH JUNE 2017. I CANNOT EXTEND THIS DATE AS I PUT ADJUDICATORS UNDER ENORMOUS PRESSURE AND THEY ARE NOT VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS.  THERE ARE NEW ADJUDICATORS IN THIS SESSION FOR THE 2017 FESTIVAL.  I ALSO HAVE TO PREPARE THE DIPLOMAS FOR ALL PARTICIPATING CANDIDATES BEFORE I CAN RELEASE ART WORKS TO ADJUDICATORS.  THIS TAKES TIME!!!  PLEASE LET US GIVE THEM ENOUGH TIME DURING THE JUNE HOLIDAY TO ADJUDICATE THE ART.
  1. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: I WILL NOT DISCUSS THIS MATTER IN DEPTH.  TEACHERS SHOULD ENSURE THAT IT IS INDEED THE WORK OF THE CANDIDATE THAT THEY ENTER.  ADJUDICATORS WILL MONITOR THIS VERY CLOSELY.  IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE ART OF A GRADE 1 TO LOOK LIKE THE WORK

OF A 13-YEAR-OLD.
