Transport expenses form the designated hand-in stations to Frederiksborg Castle and return will be covered by the museum. However, the artist must deliver and collect the artwork at the designated hand-in station where the artwork was handed in originally. It is up to the artist to insure the artwork during transport, competition and exhibition.

The artwork must be applied with visible ID-number. For paintings, graphic works etc. apply the ID-number on the back.

Videoes submitted on discs must also be applied with ID-number. Please send 5 copies of discs directly to The Museum of National History at Federiksborg. The Material will not be returned.

The jury will select the winners of the competition as well as the artworks that will be included in the exhibition Portrait Now! The exhibition will be displayed at Frederiksborg from May to August 2021. Artworks not included in the exhibition will be returned to the designated hand-in stations and must be collected by the artist by a later disclosed date.
