2014 Art Reproduction Challenge

This challenge is about encouraging you to build your art business. Using whatever means at your disposal to promote you work, generate interest and find new clients. The hard you work, the luckier you will get!
To participate in the challenge you need to do the following…
1. Have three new pieces of art photographed before June 30, 2014.
2. Order one original size reproduction of each piece before June 30, 2014
3. Promote these images in at least 5 different places (our site can be one), physically on display or posted online.
4. Get a sale for at least one reproduction from any of those three images – you only need one sale.
5. Show me the proof by June 30th 2014 – take a photo of a reproduction on display, send a link to online posts etc., and a copy of the invoice for the sale.
Everyone who can meet this challenge will win a $100 credit for printing with us. 
To make entering the challenge a little more tempting, we will offer a 25% discount on all art capture (Copy and Proof) for this month as well. You can have as many pieces photographed as you like but it takes a minimum of 3 to enter the challenge.
If you don’t have any new work ready for capture don’t worry, I have a challenge for you too, you can still compete!
1. Promote your images in at least 5 different places (our site can be one), physically on display or posted online. These must be images we already have on file and must be new displays or posts.
2. Order at least 3 reproductions, original size, of any of those images.
3. Get a sale for at least one reproduction from any of your images – you only need one sale.
4. Show me the proof by June 30th 2014 – take a photo of a reproduction on display, send a link to online posts etc., and a copy of the invoice for the sale.
When you succeed in this challenge, you will receive a $75.00 credit for printing with us.

    Hi Marlene, Thanks for your comment.
    I will email through some details to you but where there’s a will there’s a way – I have clients all over Australia who find ways to get their originals to me. Check out Jenny Greentree of http://www.backobourkegallery.com – we’ve copied around 70 artworks for her almost all pastels and many came to us by Australia Post and went back the same way!

    Yes, we can work with your files and will do our very best with them if needed. The quality of our digital capture will certainly exceed anything else out there and is definitely worth the effort. Perhaps there’s another artist or two in town who you could work with and share some freight costs?

    This sounds like a great challenge. I have been planning to approach Arthouse Reproductions this year, as I am going through a process of reinvigorating my art at the moment. This has included a new website which I built a few months ago as my old site was quite restrictive to my needs. I have branched into Greeting Cards and my next step is to get some of my work into prints. BUT, I live in Rockhampton, so getting you to photograph the originals is a bit difficult. I have read through your site and see that you can use my own images, but I need to discuss that further with you. Also I need to find what expense I will be up for. I have been thinking of taking this next step for the past few months; this post on fb has prompted me to finally make contact even though this month of June is so booked up for me I don’t think I could actually fulfill the challenge at the moment. When I am a little more organised I will make contact with you by phone, (I wish I could visit and have a chat….but the distance is against me).
    Kind regards, Marlene Millard.
