And how will that work if I am selected for a physical exhibition?

If you are selected to take part in a physical exhibition we will confirm delivery and collection arrangements nearer the time.

How many artists will be selected?

A maximum of 100 artists will be able to take part per edition and have a single page in the ISSUU magazine featuring up to 4 images. From these 100, approximately 30 will be invited to take part in the live broadcast element.


What is the ISSUU digital magazine?

ISSUU is a digital magazine platform that enables us to create a multi media, searchable, page turning magazine experience for the viewer. ISSUU has millions of users across the globe. It also has an app for on the go viewing and is simple to share across social media. 


What will the live broadcast include? 

Each live broadcast will be between 45 minutes and 1 hour in duration. A pre-recorded video created in advance, either by the artists themselves or our professional team, will be published on social media in advance, followed by a live interview and Q&A between the artist and one of the Pure team. 

Can I elect to have my broadcast pre-recorded?

We encourage all artists selected for the live broadcasts to embrace the opportunity, however, if there is a specific reason why you can't broadcast live we will consider a pre record option, but, this must be agreed in advance, prior to the broadcast schedule being published.

How will the live broadcasts work?

The live broadcast will be delivered via the Crowdcast.io platform. The platform is very user friendly and allows screen sharing. It also allows for HD download of all broadcasts.


How will the live broadcasts be promoted?

The full schedule of broadcasts will be promoted on the Pure websites, in the ISSUU digital Magazine and on social media. Following each days live broadcast, the HD recording will also be downloaded and added to the Pure ART360 website page and Youtube channel, for further viewing and promotion.


What equipment will I need if I am selected as 1 of the live broadcast artists?

You will need access to a device that has a microphone and camera. Most desk and laptops now have these built in. Clearly the better quality equipment you have the better quality images of your studio we will be able to convey to the audience. You will also need wired headphones and access to wifi for the live broadcast element. This does not need to be in your studio, although this would be preferable. 


I've never done a live broadcast before - what help is available?

We use an online platform called Crowdcast, and can assure you that it is very user friendly. We did our first live broadcast ever at the beginning of March 2020 and now we are seeing viewing figures in excess of 15,000 people per broadcast! If we can do it, we promise you it must be easy.

Crowdcast have a ‘green room’ to allow time for you to set up, get comfortable and test all your kit, before going live.

If you feel you need additional help we will be able to provide this at additional cost, to be agreed in advance.


Can I decline to be part of the live broadcasts even if I am selected?

Yes you can, because this is an opportunity to showcase your very best work. The selectors will also take these images into account when choosing the 30 artists to GO LIVE. However, this is also an opportunity to sell, so we would encourage you to have some art work of a similar style available for sale, should you be contacted by potential buyers.
