Each entry form has a release statement covering certain use of the artwork by Aviation Week & Space Technology and The American Society of Aviation Artists. This release must be signed by the artist for each entered work. Failure to sign the release will invalidate the entry.

Artists are responsible for shipping and insurance of their artwork to the exhibition. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to cover the return shipment and insurance for ASAA members as in the past. Therefore,
all shipping and insurance costs to and from the exhibition will be the responsibility of the artist

In the event ASAA or the Museum is able to cover return costs, this responsibility is not to exceed $200. Be sure your return address is a street address accepting UPS or FedEx delivery.
