Submission Deadlines: 

Note: All works submitted must be ready for installation. It is not necessary that pieces be framed but they must be ready for display. For example, paintings should be wired in the reverse of the stretcher frame, allowing them to be hung from picture hooks.


The artist is responsible for transporting the artwork to the Herman Maril Gallery at the designated drop-off time and, if the piece is not selected for first place, collecting the piece from the gallery after the Sadat Art for Justice and Peace Exhibition.


 

First Place artwork will be kept and added to the Sadat Art for Justice and Peace Permanent Collection. The Anwar Sadat Chair for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland will have the right to keep and display the artwork as well as reproduce the art and images of the art, with credit given to the artist. The artist shall also retain the rights to use and reproduce the artwork. Past artwork has been awarded to Sadat Lecturers at UMD including Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, Jimmy Carter, Mary Robinson, and others.
