Entry Form Tips - Copyright Consent

How are you going at filling out your entry forms?

In our previous post we talked about writing descriptions for our quilt entries. This week I thought we should mention Copyright Consent.

In our terms and agreements we ask that entrants must obtain any necessary copyright consents to exhibit their quilts and publish photos. 

Don't worry - It's not as scary as it sounds. Most quilts don't need copyright consent.

It is NOT necessary to have permission to display and publish a quilt made from a commercially available pattern, including a quilt kit, Block of the Month or a quilt pattern from within a magazine or book. 

That pretty much covers most quilts that are made other than those designed by the entrant.

In other words if you haven't designed the quilt yourself and it does not fall into one of the above categories then you are required to obtain copyright consent from the original source, that could be a designer or museum. You can email or write them a letter.

If you have any questions about this or need need clarification email us at springwoodquiltshow@hotmail.com. 
It's as easy as that. 

So if you haven't already picked out your quilts that you want to show this year, now is a good time to get them out, measure them up and enter them using our online form or print a form out and send it to the address provided. It's exciting to think of all the wonderful quilts that we'll be seeing in just a couple of months time at the show.
