2. The entry form is downloadable now, for here -> http://www.sendspace.pl/file/6c92af31b0 ... artags2012

Please fill it in capital letters. The last part is missing the "Name", because this part will be located under the figure of the exposure. The other two are for the participant and the jury. Of course there will be an opportunity to fill the card in place at the table the application.

3. I regret to inform that the Mahon from the jury at 99% won't show up at the party, so we have an emergency situation. It is announced in advance so that it was not a surprise :) We have a replacement - a sculptor from Titan Forge, Slawek.

At the moment the jury is as follows: Kacpero, Slawek, Sławol.
