Images will remain online for approximately one year. 

Submission of your image automatically includes permission for CAW to use it at our discretion, including for promotional and social media purposes (which may include some careful photo editing).

CAW will put any interested buyer in touch with you individually so that you can manage the sale, collection, postage, or couriering of the work to them. 

CAW will not take responsibility for any sales or transfer of works to purchasers
