The Museum is not responsible for any damages or loss of the material in competition. The organization will not pay any customs fees or taxes. In order to avoid high fees and customs taxes, we advise US participants to declare the package as “no commercial value”. FedEx charges high customs fees upon delivery, thus the regular mail is preferred. Participants are advised to provide good packing to avoid damages during posting. Email submissions are not valid.

Digital images should be printed in paper but a copy in CD-Rom must be also submitted with a minimum definition of 300 dpi, not compressed and in natural size (digital canvas no smaller than 148 x 210 mm). Those will not be returned. Non-digital artwork is encouraged to come along with a scanned version in CR-Rom.

11. The Jury is composed by Miguel Telles Antunes (paleontologist), Fernando Correia (biologist e scientific illustrator), Nuno Farinha (biologist e scientific illustrator), Octávio Mateus (paleontologist, organization) e José Projecto (painter). The jury’s final decisions are incontestable and the jury has the right to not attribute any prize, if the lack of the quality justifies it. The competition will only take place if there are, at least, ten competitors.
