Cancelled – MAC International 2020
It is with regret that we have decided to cancel MAC International 2020.
This decision has been driven by the significant impact COVID-19 is having around the world, and the predicted impact it will continue to have, not only in the next few weeks, but in the coming months.
We know the cancellation of MAC International whilst still in the ‘Call for Submissions’ stage will be incredibly disappointing for the artists who have already submitted proposals and those working on their submissions, but we hope you will appreciate these are unprecedented and uncertain times.
Our team will be in touch with anyone who has submitted an application over the coming days with information on the refund of entry fees. We would appreciate your understanding and patience at this time, and also wish to thank you all again for applying for MAC International 2020.
