Any “Not for Sale” entries should be clearly marked “NFS” with the insured value on the entry form and back of artwork. The BFAC assumes reproduction rights for promotional purposes only. If a piece is sold between entry and notification, the piece is still eligible to compete in the show. However, if the piece cannot be sent to the BFAC for display in the show, it will be withdrawn from the competition. A replacement piece may be eligible at the discretion of the BFAC.
