Conditions of accepting the grant It is a condition of accepting a grant from the Gabo Trust that a report and accompanying high-resolution images are submitted digitally to within two months of the end of the project. The report should include a copyright notice for both text and photographs that remain the property of the author. The Gabo Trust may quote from the report and use the photographs in its own publicity material without further reference to the grant recipient. The Gabo Trust should be acknowledged in any report or publication arising from its grant and a copy must be sent to the secretary of the Gabo Trust.

Report on research grant The report should be a minimum of two pages of A4. It should state clearly what the grant recipient hoped to achieve and it should analyse the success or otherwise of the project. It should also include an evaluation of the benefits to the recipient, and to conservation in general.

Failure to comply with these conditions will prejudice any future application.

If the Trustees of the Gabo Trust consider a report on a study project to be of wider interest, it will be lodged in the Tate Archive.

Grant recipients will not be eligible for another Gabo Trust grant until two years have elapsed.
