  • Name and contact information (including mailing address, phone number, e-mail, and web addresses)
  • Biographical information

This information, along with the samples of artwork submitted, is used to review artists and their work by our jurors, to contact the winning artists, and the biographical information provided is also featured in the competition catalogues.

The Magenta Foundation also collects e-mail addresses for our newsletter updates, via the signup form that appears on several of our pages. This information is used only to send out periodic news and announcements and is never shared with anyone.


At no time will any of the artists’ mailing addresses or phone numbers be made public, and we will never sell, rent or give our contact database to any other company or organization. Information will be retained indefinitely unless the individual it concerns requests that it be deleted. At any time any artist may contact us to change or remove their information.

Anyone who subscribes to our newsletter may unsubscribe at any time by clicking the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of all Magenta News emails, and their information will be immediately deleted from the list.
