General Terms and Conditions

Application and Contract
Making an application does not automatically entitle the applicant to a place on the seminar. BerlinPhotoWorkshops reserves the rights to choose participants on the basis of their filed work examples or portfolios and the interview. The applicant is not entitled to legally challenge this decision. The selected participants will be given contracts which are legally binding about signing.

Terms of payment
The seminar fee is due in full, four weeks before the beginning of the seminar. If the contract is signed later, fees are due immediately. For seminars of more than 5 days duration, it is possible to pay in two installments of half of the total amount due. The second payment is due four weeks before the sixth seminar meeting.

Cancellation by participant
Cancellation is possible up to four weeks before the beginning of the seminar; however we will charge a service fee of 10, – Euros. Cancellation up to 14 days before beginning of the seminar will result in cancellation fees of 50% of the full seminar fee, for later cancellation the full fee of the seminar is due without consideration.

Cancellation by BerlinPhotoWorkshops
BerlinPhotoWorkshops reserves the right to cancel and change the dates of seminars due to either a high response or too few participants. In this case the seminar fee will be returned in full if the participant is unable to accomodate the new seminar date.
