Each author has to send the works at the address: REVELA-T . Carrer Pau Piferrer, 24 . 08339 Vilassar de Dalt (Barcelona) in order that the responsible from the Festival have all the material to be exhibited by May 15th the latest.

Once the Festival is over, on June 21st, we propose you two options:

  • RETURN: Festival will return the works in a maximum of 2 months since the end of the Festival. Shipping cost will be paid by the author, who will have to pay at the bank account that we'll provide once we select the projects, for the same amount than the original shipping costs.
  • DEPOSIT: leave the works in deposit at Festival, so we can promote and sell them.

Here we give you detailed information of this option.

Laveing the exhibited works in deposit at Festival Revela’T

In this edition of Revela-T we want to start a new project as part of the Festival. This is selling the works of the selected programs at an online shop in Revela't webpage. This also means to exhibit this works in several places. This helps selling the works but also helps promoting the authors and their work.

This option eases the logistics of returning the works and offers the Festival the opportunity to sell and promote the works.

If you are interested in leaveing the works in deposit, point that out in the form.

Termes and Conditions of deposit will be dealt once the selection of the proposals has been made.

Participation rights

Festival is nonprofit. All expenses are covered by contributions by individuals and companies with different promotions and campaigns that we organize. We haven't established any quota as participation rights as we think that you artists already do a lot showing us your works. Without you there wouldn't be any festival. Anyway, if you are interested in contributing, you can do so, but it's not a requirement, and it's completely voluntary.

In order to organize the production of the exhibitions, there're some inherent expenses that need to be funded with several projects. One of this projects is a crowdfunding in Kickstarter where we can offer different kinds of articles and at different prices. From Festival merchandising to photographies, etc

If you feel so, and as we say, its completely up to you, you can cede a work so we can offer it as a reward for one of the  pledges. You decide the price. We'll add the shipping costs. If it's sold, you'd have helped to the production of the exhibitions and to the continuity of the Festival.
