Don’t forget the deadline!

Keep on track with these key date reminders and pointers about submitting your 2019 physical entry


As the physical submission deadlines for the 2019 PPC Imaginarium Awards rapidly approach this month, we would like to remind this year’s participants of a few key points when submitting your work.

Packaging physical submissions

We would hate to see potential masterpieces be disqualified due to breakage during transportation, so we caution participants to take the utmost care in packaging their fragile submissions.

Elected works will travel up to six times throughout the judging process and we cannot take responsibility for any pieces that are damaged or broken due to inadequate packaging. We recommend that all fragile works have re-usable, durable packing solutions and packing instructions where necessary, as the packaging will be handled by a third party who will not necessarily have appropriate solutions at the time of packing for the next exhibition destination.

We recommend two packaging methods for entries: bubble wrap and/or a wooden crate. You can find step-by-step instructions on how to ensure your submission is sufficiently protected here.
