    Expression of Interest Agreement

    As at 30 June 2015

    Belinda Mason Photography Pty Ltd (“BMP”) has established the website page “Expression of Interest” (“EOI”) to receive a digital copy of artwork (“Artwork”) from women with a disability from anywhere in the world (“Artist”, “you” or “your”) and (potentially) to display these on the “Silent Tears” website (“ST”) and to use these in exhibitions, books and exhibition catalogues around the theme of “silent tears”.

    This Agreement (“Agreement”) confirms the terms and conditions upon which an Artist may submit Artwork to BMP.

    Before submitting any image, please carefully read the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You must press the “I accept” button before submitting any Artwork to BMP.


    All digital files of Artworks submitted to BMP must have been created by you and with the permission of any person identifiable within the Artwork.  BMP has complete discretion whether an Artwork is displayed on ST or otherwise used in connection with the theme of “silent tears” and, if displayed, how it is displayed and for how long (including whether BMP will crop the Artwork).

    Ownership/Use Rights: Artists Retain Copyright

    By submitting an EOI, Artist agrees to have her artwork displayed on the ST without any fee or other form of compensation, and she agrees that BMP may also display her Artworks on social media to promote ST and the Artist and reproduce the Artwork for the purposes of exhibitions, books and exhibition catalogues around the theme of “silent tears”. Artworks will be credited to the Artist named in the EOI form. Artwork submitted to ST will not be sold by BMP or licensed other than stated in these terms and conditions. BMP will never claim to own the Artwork or the copyright in the Artwork, and BMP will contact an Artist if it wants to use an Artwork other than as set out in this Agreement.

    If ownership of any Artwork submitted is contested, BMP retains the discretion to disqualify that Artwork and to stop using it.

    Agreements of Artists, Granting of Rights and Acknowledgment of Right to Submit

    Artists may submit as many Artworks as they wish.

    By submitting an Artwork as part of the EOI, you grant BMP a perpetual non-exclusive, royalty-free and irrevocable right to upload that artwork for display on ST, to reproduce the Artwork for the purposes of exhibitions, books and exhibition catalogues on the theme of “silent tears”. Submission of an Artwork by means of this EOI is not, however, an automatic acceptance that the Artwork will be included in any official exhibition, book or exhibition catalogue.

    Confirmation of Agreement

    By submitting an Artwork as part of the EOI, your warrant that: you have read and are bound by the terms of this Agreement; you are at least 18 years old; you created the Artwork; you own copyright in the Artwork or otherwise have the legal right to submit the artwork to ST and to grant BMP the rights described in this Agreement; you have obtained all required releases from anyone who is recognizable in the Artwork and from anyone who has provided any materials appearing in the Artwork (such as third-party copyright material); and that BMP’s copying, publishing, displaying, or otherwise utilizing the Artwork under this or any other agreement you enter into with BMP will not infringe the rights of any other party. You also agree that BMP may use your name in publicising the Artwork and ST and exhibitions, books and exhibition catalogues related to the theme of “silent tears” without any payment or other compensation and that BMP cannot be liable for any unauthorized use of the Artwork by third parties.


    You agree to indemnify and hold BMP harmless from any loss, liability, damage or expense (including attorney fees) suffered or incurred by BMP as a result of any breach of your warranties or commitments under this Agreement.

    Discontinuance or Change of ST 

    BMP reserves the right, in its discretion, to modify or discontinue the ST at any time for any reason.

    Modification of Terms and Conditions. 

    BMP reserves the right, in its discretion, to modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time by posting such modifications on ST. Any Artist who submits an Artwork following such changes will be bound by such posted modifications in relation to Artworks submitted after those changes.
