The Iconia Gallery is open to every iconographer who wishes to present his work on the Web and to share his love for icons. The following are excluded:
- People or associations who already participate in other Websites.
- Professional gallery owners.
The proposed icons must have been painted in conformity with the canons of the iconographic tradition. Saint Andrew Workshop reserves the right not to publish any deviating or whimsical picture that affects or deviates from the theology of the icon. Any image that seems to us doubtful in origin will not be published.
The Gallery is strictly noncommercial. The exhibition of the images is entirely free. No contact will be established between the exhibitor and the visitors of the Saint Andrew Workshop Web page. The minimal exhibition time is of three months and only one image per e-mail address will be exposed during this time.
Pictures and texts sent and their copyrights remain the property of the exhibitor and Saint Andrew Workshop declines any responsibility in case of illicit copy or plagiarism. Digital pictures or, on any other support, are accepted. Digital pictures will be sent via e-mail and the images on other supports (floppies, CDs, paper) to our postal address. Mailed pictures will not be returned to the sender. The resolution for a digital picture will be of 72 dpi and the minimal size of 400 x 400 pixels. The minimal size of a photograph on paper will be of 13 X 15 cm.
The texts accompanying the icon should be written by the exhibitors in one of the following languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian, Dutch or German. They will relate to the subject of the icon, its origin, its symbolism or its theological and liturgical significance and/or the technique used. Any other comments will be censured (publicity, addresses etc).
The first name and the country of origin of the icon painter, the picture, the title, the comments and the dimensions of the icon will be published in the Gallery. The e-mail address will remain strictly confidential and will not be published.
