  • Where a young person has been entered for multiple Arts Awards as part of the same moderation booking, the above fees apply per portfolio/arts log

 

Additional moderation fee info

Standard moderation - There is a minimum moderation fee of £490

The minimum fee can be reached through any combination of levels entered as part of the same moderation booking. The moderation fee will either be the minimum fee, or the total of the per-person moderation fees, whichever is greater. This means that if the minimum moderation fee is not met with the total of your per-person fees, a 'top-up' amount to cover the difference will be charged. 

 

Postal moderation - There is an additional admin fee of £20 and a total maximum fee of £489

The admin fee is applicable per moderation booking for the safe handling, processing and return of the portfolios/arts logs back to centres via tracked delivery. To be eligible for postal moderation, the total invoiced fee for your moderation (the per-person plus admin fee) must be below the minimum fee for standard moderation, £490. This means that for postal moderation the maximum fee is set at £489. Any centres, whose total fees exceed this amount, must select an alternative moderation option.
