Hand in of selected artwork

Submit your portrait

The hand in of the selected portraits to Portrait NOW! 2023 will take place in early February 2023. Artists selected to hand in artworks for the second judging will be notified directly.

The exact hand in period will be announced at a later date. It is important to check with the contact person at the drop-off point before sending the portrait.

Each artwork will be assigned an ID number upon entry. It is important to save this ID number for the duration of the competition.

An expert jury will inspect the artworks at Frederiksborg Castle in March 2023. All artworks will be inspected anonymously and the jury will refer to the ID numbers.

Guidelines for hand in of artworks

The artwork must be packed securely for transport. All artworks that are handed in to the various drop-off points will be transported to the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle via special transport. Try not to use heavy boxes.

Transport costs from the drop-off points to Frederiksborg Castle and return will be covered by the museum. However, the artist is responsible for handing in and collection of the artwork from the drop-off point. This also applies to personal hand ins made at the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle. NOTE: It is up to the artist to insure the artwork during transport, competition and exhibition.

The artwork must be submitted with a visible ID number. The ID number will be placed on the back of paintings, graphic works, etc. Videos should be sent as an attachment in an email to portraet@dnm.dk with the ID number in the subject field.

The jury will select the portraits that will be exhibited at the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle from May 2023. Artworks that are not included in the exhibition will be returned to the drop-off points. The artists must pick up their works at these drop-off points prior to a certain date, which will be announced later.

If you have any questions or require further information, please contact the museum at portraet@dnm.dk.
