***NEW*** MINDBRIDGE ART SHOW COPYRIGHT POLICY(as of April, 2009)
In the interests of protecting intellectual property rights, Mindbridge will make a good faith effort to ensure that copyrighted material will not be sold without the permission of the copyright holders. Mindbridge will request and require all individuals participating in sales through Mindbridge to sign a waiver acknowledging that they are responsible for ensuring that their items comply with copyright and trademark laws. Additionally, such agents will be required to sign a statement accepting full responsibility for ensuring that they have the legal right to sell those items and to waive and hold harmless Mindbridge Foundation, its subsidiaries and projects from any recourse that selling those items may provoke. Icon is a project of the Mindbridge Foundation, and will be enforcing this policy.If you have any questions about this policy, please contact us. This waiver will be available closer to ICON 35.

MAIN ART SHOW RULES
Each piece must have a minimum bid, a quicksale price, and an after auction price (after auction price may be NFS). (If not for sale, the work must be designated as NFS.) A quick sale price is one at which the piece may be purchased immediately if there are no current bids. Quick sold artwork will not go to auction. This year, ICON will be charging a $2.50 per panel or half-table. Each artist will be guaranteed at least 4 panels, for hanging art, or or 4 half-tables, for three dimensional art (or any division thereof), with additional space on a first-come, first-served basis. (Panels are approx 30” x 60”, half tables are approx. 36” x 36”).Artwork for sale will have hanging priority over notforsale artwork. All artwork must be ready to display upon arrival. Bid sheets must be attached to each piece, and a control sheet listing each piece must be included. Please attach the bid sheets so they may be seen when the piece is hanging. Binder clips on pegboard hooks will be used to hang most artwork. There is a limited rack space for stained glass, which is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Awards will be voted on at the convention and announced at the auction, and prizes will go to the artist or the artist’s agent. Prize winning pieces will go to auction unless they have a quick-sale bid or are listed as not-for-sale.
