For Gloucester to freely use semi-finalist and finalist designs, GCC will require semi-finalist artists to sign

a Rights Transfer Agreement. This agreement includes transferring all rights to these designs to GCC,

assurance that the submitted designs are original, and other requirements that could prevent the city

from producing and publicizing the winning medal design.


All semi-finalists will be required to sign and return the Rights Transfer Agreement with their Phase 2 entries.

 A copy will also be provided when the semi-finalists are invited to compete in Phase 2.
