Background to the ADP Art Challenge
Earlier this year we launched the “ADP Art Challenge.”
Architects are creative people, yet we spend much of our time producing technical information on computers. The aim of this challenge is to release some creative energies, and then to showcase our work. The theme for the challenge was to be inspired by the “virtual lines” that join our various studios together.
Employees were invited to donate their work so that
it could be auctioned for charity. Our fun being creative will thereby
translate into benefit shared equally between two charities: The Marudyan
Society, which provides education to children living below the poverty line in
India, and to support the work done by Macmillan.
Please browse through the catalogue of artwork and, if you feel so disposed to do so, make a bid for a favourite piece! 100% of the money raised will go to the two charities.
Work is now being collected in our various studios and will be transported along those “virtual lines” to arrive Edinburgh for an exhibition as part of the Festival on Thursday 23 August, and will then move to the Jewellery Quarter, where our Birmingham Studio is located, for a second show, on Thursday 6 September. Online bidding will close at 8.00pm that evening. If you would like to attend this event and have not yet received an invitation or have any queries regarding the auction, please contact Vicky Knowlden by telephoning 01865 248045 or by emailing email@example.com.
If you win an auction item, you can pay via bank transfer or cheque. Winning bidders will be informed after the auction closes by email, which will include all payment details.
Once payment has been received, artwork can be taken at the Birmingham exhibition on 6 September, collected from our studios at a later date, or you can pay to have the item sent directly to you.
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
