NOISE Festival Collection store


Where will the money go to and why?

The NOISE Collection is a store selling the work of emerging NOISE artists from the NOISEfestival.com website, for more about the charity click here or visit our website www.NOISEfestival.com


The money will go straight to the UK-based NOISE charity who currently receive no core funding for the dedicated work it does to support emerging artists. Money raised will assist the NOISE Charity to continue to create a level playing field for talented young people to gain entry into the Creative Industries.
All artists who have submitted designs for products get a fixed payment for each item sold.

What’s the difference between the Secret Postcards and the other ones?

The Secret Postcards are one-off totally unique little bits of art. Over 100 emerging NOISE artists and an array of top professional artists donated these mini works of art as part of the 2010 Secret Postcard sale; including legendary musician Elvis Costello, the poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy, new contemporary Brit artist Stuart Semple, Maverick street artist and gallerist Pure Evil and DJ Mr Scruff. The secret is you don’t know who you have bought, until we send it you.

The regular postcards are reproductions of a selection of amazing artwork that has been submitted to NOISEfestival.com from top creative talent in the UK right now.

How do I pay and is VAT included?

We accept payments through PayPal, so you’ll need a credit or debit card.
VAT is not included in the price of the item. VAT at 20% will be added when you reach PayPal to complete your transaction.

Is postage included?

Postage will be added on top of the price of the item. We’ll also send your postcard registered (UK only). More info here

I live miles and miles away/ in a different country / on mars – will you post?

We can post, but the delivery time will be a little bit longer and we cannot guarantee its delivery.

I’d like my work to be included on a t-shirt/ postcard – how do I do this?

Head to www.NOISEfestival.com and upload your work to your own, free online portfolio. At current, we don’t have any further plans to produce more postcards or t-shirts, but as and when we do – you have to be in it to win it, as the saying goes..

Secret Postcards

How can I find out which artists have submitted their work to the secret sale?

For full list of artists and a short biography click here – we haven’t given too much away though!

When will I find out whose postcard I have bought?

The secret will be revealed when receive your postcard – all postcards are signed on the back. Inside a little protective cover, along with your postcard you will also receive a biography of your chosen artist. It’s all very exciting.

I don’t like the postcard now I have it, can I send it back to you for a refund or a swap?

No! It would spoil the secret. Sorry, but thems the rules!

Can I buy as many as I like?

Yeah, why not go crazy.... because once they have gone, they’ve gone!

I’d like to submit a design for a Secret Postcard, how can I do this?
Submissions are now closed, but we will be hosting a very similar sale in late 2011. Sign up to the NOISE newsletter on the top left of this page to receive regular updates and news.
